Where do I get my comforters washed? At The Dirty Hamper!
June 07, 2021
Did you know many dry cleaners take their comforters to laundromats like ours, because comforters absorb the expensive petroleum products used by dry cleaners. We will launder your comforters, put them in individual machines that are just the right size, and dry them on low or medium heat to help ensure they don't wrinkle. Our large capacity machines are less expensive than taking your comforter to a dry cleaner. Comforters, especially king and queen size comforters, will take up most of the room in the washing machine and dryer. You don’t want to over-stuff your appliances, after all. Filling dryers pass their capacities can prevent proper drying, lead to mold and mildew growth.
If you use our wash and fold laundry service, we check the care label to see the manufacturer's instructions on how to wash your comforter. If the label gives us the okay to machine wash, we are sure to follow any specific instructions, such as using cold water. It's also worth mentioning that down comforters can be washed, as well. It's a common misconception that down comforters have to be taken to a dry cleaner, but unless the label specifically instructs otherwise you can definitely wash it with us. You can also use our pickup and delivery for all your comforters. We will pick them up from your house, wash and fold them, and deliver them back to you.
