We spend a third of our lives in bed, so it’s a good idea to give some thought to the maintenance and care of your duvet and pillow. Including for the sake of your comfort when you sleep. The better the duvet and pillow, the better the night’s sleep, we say. Each night, your body releases a lot of fluid through sweat and exhalation, and over time the filling of both your duvet and pillow will naturally begin to clump together.
If you switch between summer and winter duvets, or need to store your duvets for a longer period, e.g. in a summer house or a caravan, it is important that you know how to store your pillows and duvets the right way – this is how they will last best in the long run.
