Nothing quite beats that fresh bedding feeling, but drying your bedding and duvet cover can be one of life’s challenges, especially if you don’t have a dryer. Knowing how to dry a duvet cover correctly means that you can not only speed the drying process up, but ensure that your bedding smells fresher, for longer. If you have a dryer and are wondering how to dry a duvet cover, then the best way is to use a low-heat setting. By drying on a low-heat, you’re allowing the moisture levels from washing to change more evenly, which allows the fabric time to adjust and distribute this warmth more evenly. It also avoids causing your bedding to bobble or shrink.
If you don’t have a dryer and are wondering how to dry a duvet cover, then depending on the time of year, drying outside is best as it also distributes the drying more evenly. Additionally you will reduce your energy risk and lower the chances of creating additional moisture within your home. During the winter, use a clothes airer to allow even air distribution or hang over a door or bannister - the key is to give the material as much surface area as possible. Try to rotate the duvet cover every hour. Remember, the higher the thread count, the longer the bedding will need to dry. If you are drying duvet covers indoors, giving it an extra spin or two after washing can also help to speed up the drying process.
