I was frustrated with the fact that I was replacing my queen-size down comforters after only a few years of use. It didn’t make sense that they went flat so quickly. I stumbled upon a great way to make them last longer.
Instead of buying a queen-size comforter the last time, I bought a king-size one…and put it in a queen-size duvet cover. This way, the down doesn’t migrate to the edges as much, so I’m not losing feathers or down. I regularly launder the duvet cover and have cleaned the comforter itself many times. 8 years later, the comforter is still fluffy and keeping us warm on cold winter nights.
