Down comforter - washing tips?
I would like to wash a queen size down comforter in my LG FL. This is an older comforter but since we always use duvet covers that get changed and washed weekly, the comforter itself has never been washed before. It's not stained but it has definitely reached a point of needing good refreshing.
So here are my questions:
What cycle should I use: Bulky, Delicate, Hand Wash? or something else?
What water temperature? I'd like to use HOT to kill dust mites but will this damage the down?
What detergent? I have a choice of Persil Silk and Wool Wash, Vaska, Eucalan or Woolite Delicate Wash.
When I dry it, should I use my dryer balls? I have 5 or 6 of them in the dryer and use them when drying most of my loads.
Any other tips?
