    Default Washing a down feather bed

    I have a king size down feather bed that my dog used as his urinal.Does

    anyone know if I can wash it?

    I would have to bring it to the laundromat because it will not fit in

    my washer.It was very expensive and I don't want to ruin it but I also

    don't want to sleep on pee.

    Thanks for any help,Lori

    I've washed a down ONCE. I stress once
    only because it took forever to dry. If you
    have excess to a large front loader all the
    better, you'll need low or non-sudsing
    detergent. If you prefer a 'soap' make
    sure it is non-sudsing. Wash using cold
    or warm water. Line dry...go out and hand
    fluff the feathers every couple of hours.
    OR you can hand wash it in your bathtub
    if you have strong hands to push the water
    out of the comforter, don't wring it out just
    push the water out.
    My great grandmother, Rose Johnson, used followingmethod...she removed the feathers from their casinginto the bathtub. Washing the covering in a machine and washing the loose feathers in the bathtub.

    You have to buy special soap made just for down. I ordered some for a sleeping bag from an online camping gear place. Also get some clean tennis balls because you have to dry it with tennis balls to fluff it up after you use the special soap to wash it with. The laundromat is essential because there is no way you will be able to wash and dry it at home.

    Default Washing a down feather bed

    Reading this makes me soooooooooooooooooo happy that I chose the Northern Nights WASHABLE down comforters from QVC. I have two of them. I wash them in our machine, then tumble dry with a few tennis balls. They come out great every time. I put one in at a time in the washer, then into the dryer on the light setting and let it go. Never had a problem. Our first, we have had for several years. The second, we got the end of last year. They have the ones you have to send out to the dry cleaners too. Herlean
