What’s the Best Way to Clean Bedding?

Bed coverings are a focal point of your bedroom and will benefit from freshening after months of use. Many people only clean their comforters or bedspreads once a season. If you use a duvet cover, you may not have to clean your comforter but once every 2 – 3 years. But if simple shaking does not return your comforter to its original loft, bring it to Anton’s and have it professionally cleaned.

Before cleaning, inspect the comforter or bedspread for rips, tears and weak areas. These articles become quite heavy when immersed in solvent or water and during cleaning the weak areas can enlarge. It’s best to address the problem before cleaning.

Also, cleaning or laundering all matching and coordinated items (shams, dust ruffles, curtains) at the same time helps to ensure that any color or sheen loss is uniform.
