When you have a comforter, there’s a good chance that it will get bunched up. It is a pain to try and get everything straightened out, especially when you don’t know how to fix it. A lumpy comforter will make you uncomfortable when you’re trying to sleep. It also can ruin the comforter if you don’t try and fix it. There are some tricks and tips you can use to fix it so you can return to your perfect sleep. The best part is that it won’t take too much time and your comforter will feel like it’s brand new.
You will want to start off by shaking the comforter out. If you can shake it, the filling will redistribute to get back to where it once was. You want to make sure that you start where the buildup is and work your way through the comforter. You don’t want to grab the filling of the comforter because you will prevent it from moving out. When you start shaking the comforter, you want to ensure all the filling is spreading out evenly. You may need to repeat the process a few times before the filling is even. If you do it on a daily basis, your comforter will keep its form longer.
After you fluff out the comforter, you can stretch it out on a hardwood floor. You can run your hands over the comforter to help even it out. Then you’ll need to flip the comforter over and run your hands over the other side too. You can then put it out on a clothesline to let it air out and help the filling spread out. You can then put it in the machine, if it’s machine washable, and you can set it to a gentle cycle. A mild laundry detergent will help get any stains or soils out of the comforter.
You can put the comforter in the dryer after you have shaken it off once again. You want to set the heat as low as possible, and then you can put in a couple of tennis balls with the comforter. It will help it balance all the filling. It will take a while to dry completely, but you want to check on it during the drying process and fluff it again. If you feel some parts are hotter than others, you can try to adjust the heat settings. Just confirm that the comforter is completely dry before you put it back on the bed otherwise you increase the chance for mold to grow.
