Care After Purchasing
After you buy a goose down duvet when you get it home you should unpack it carefully. Shaking the duvet a few minutes vigorously allows the down to loft of fluff up. It also improves the insulation and warmth of the quilt. This process will occur within 24 hours and your body heat will add to this process. When you do this you should remove the duvet cover. A duvet cover is important to protect your goose down comforter from daily wear and tear. It should be washed and changed periodically too.
Your goose down duvet should be aired out with the window open or outside hanging on a line or quilt rack. It should be dry and sunny for best results. Airing out naturally leaves it smelling fresh and new so you enjoy using it when sleeping. It provides great warmth in winter on those cold winter nights.
