Any tips for handwashing a comforter?

Hello and TIA!

Any tips I should know before handwashing my comforter? I have a large King size comforter and although it says "machine washable" it is too large to fit in my top loader. It's too expensive to take it to the dry cleaners every time, so I thought I'd give it a try in the bath tub. It's not down, just thick cotton batting on the inside. Luckily I have an extra large capacity dryer, so it will fit in the dryer.

Re: Any tips for handwashing a comforter?

  • Since it is machine washable I would just find a laundromat that has a huge washer and throw it in. It would be worth the money. Otherwise you'll be spending a lot of time bending over the bathtub.

  • I wouldn't waste the money on a drycleaner.  I would just wash it in your tub--let it soak a while first and use the hottest water you can get.  I would probably rinse it and wash it a second time and then let it drip dry a bit before throwing it in your dryer.

  • I've also taken large comforters to the laundromat for pretty cheap, and it always works out well.
