Though no one knows what city or town this luxury bed linen came from, the duvet probably originated in rural areas of Europe. Although the word is French, many think it originated with the Norse. "Dunn", which, in Norse, means "down", as in from birds, is thought to have been very subtly changed by the many different dialects until it eventually became "duvet". Australians usually call the duvet a "doona", which is actually an IKEA product back in the 60's. Before then, Australians generally called it a continental quilt. As with Americans, Australians tend to clump all luxury bed linens, be they quilts, duvets, or comforters in to a single term, although they are very different.
Washing a duvet with your hands could be strenuous for you, but if you want to endow a little extra care on it then a hand wash is the best option. You can use a shampoo or a body soap for rinsing the upholstery set. Never wash it with detergents that you normally use for cleaning your clothes. Cleansers like Woolite and Ivory Snow are some of the best products meant ideally for duvets. Soak the duvet in soap water for at least one hour to eliminate the dirt. Rinse softly and avoid harsh treatment. Make sure that there's no trace of soap residue on it; rinse it at least thrice with clean water. You can use a soft bristled brush for cleansing soap and dirt from its surface. You can either air dry the fabric or employ a commercial dryer for this purpose. The feathers and the duvet cover should be aligned properly to get back the original texture after it has dried.
Stuff the duvet completely within the cover. If the duvet cover has fasteners, fit them at the other end of the duvet and close the opening of the cover.
Not all duvet covers are the same, and needless to say, are priced differently depending on the size and the type of fabric. While you cannot do much about the size aspect, you can definitely opt for cotton or linen if you do not wish to spend a lot. However, if you have a bigger budget, then go for a gorgeous one in velvet or high-quality silk. Before you decide to splurge on a delicate fabric, consider factors like ease of cleaning and maintenance, which might add up to the cost.
