  • Wash it. If your washing machine isn't big enough, take to a coin laundry. As much as I despise them, sometimes they are necessary. Just disinfect it with a spritz of rubbing alcohol before using.

    Read the tag first. Typically I use half the recommended amount of detergent and vinegar in the rinse, no fabric softener, and felted wool dryer balls in the dryer.

    Another option would be to purchase or make a duvet cover so you can wash less often.

    Naomie has all the answers . Duvet covers are great. Most down comforters suggest dry cleaning, but I washed mine at a launder matt.

    You can bring it to a dry cleaners or You can go to a laundry mat and use their large commercial machines. If you go to the laundry mat use low suds detergent and rinse twice. Dry on low heat with a couple of tennis shoes

    Not sure about a comforter, but I have a down jacket (10+ years old) that I have washed per the inside instructions, and then put in the dryer with a tennis ball; it comes out like new!

    The problem I’ve found with King comforters in general is getting them to fit into even commercial washer/dryers and getting them clean to my liking. It becomes even more difficult with King down comforters because they plump when wet. I think your best bet is your local dry cleaners. Expect to pay $$$! It’s the reason I gave away all of mine. Good luck!

    Is it washable or dry clean only? Washable take it & good book(it'll take a while to dry slowly) to laundry mat use front end loader that will wash 4-5 loads (needs to be loose in washer not compacted,wash delicate cycle cold water use Woolite & no fabric softener it'll mess up the down the use lowest heat setting removing it and shaking it out/fluffing repeatedly until dry ,if you want it smelling like something(lavender maybe) add wet washcloth with 100% pure essential oils or some wool dryer balls in dryer during dry cycle; dry clean only, well take to dry cleaner
