Pacific Coast® Bedding products are easy to care for and maintain. Most products are machine washable, but depending on the size of your product it may be best to leave the laundering to a professional.
When natural bedding products are not in use, store them in breathable bags. Avoid storing them in plastic bags, which may trap in moisture and cause the fill to mildew or disintegrate.
For specific caring information for your Pacific Coast® luxury bedding product, see below. If additional information is needed or you have additional questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-(888) 297-1778.
How to Wash a Down Comforter
Use a Duvet Cover. Remove and clean your duvet cover whenever sheets are laundered.
Fluff your comforter when you make your bed. By providing a steady flow of air, your down will continue to loft. Redistribute your comforter as needed for baffle box designs. To redistribute the fill of your comforter, lay your comforter on a flat surface and simply push the down in place with the heel of your hand and forearm.
We recommend you professionally launder your bedding every 3-5 years. It is possible to wash your bedding yourself, but you may jeopardize the life of your comforter.
We are reluctant to recommend nonprofessional laundering because home washers are often too small. Most household washing machines have an agitator in the center, which places unnecessary stress on the comforter.
If you decide to wash your comforter yourself, use a gentle detergent and a low heat drying setting. Be sure to dry the product completely for approximately 8-12 hours. Products must be dried in a machine. Line drying is not recommended.
How to Wash a Down Blanket and Throw
Wash with a mild detergent on a gentle setting with warm water.
Dry completely on a low heat setting. Any lumps or clumps of fill indicates dampness; continue to dry until you are sure there is no moisture left.
How to Wash Down Pillows, Feather Pillows and Down/Feather Blend Pillows
Pillows should be covered with a pillow protector in addition to decorative pillowcases. These protectors, which often have a zipper closure, provide an additional layer between the pillow and a pillowcase.
Use a mild detergent on a warm water and gentle setting. After the wash cycle is complete, rinse the pillow two additional times to rid the pillow of any soap that may still be in the pillow. Then spin the pillow two additional times to rid the pillow of excess water.
Dry the pillow completely on a low heat setting. For pillows with internal chambers, you may need to dry the pillow for 6-8 hours. Between cycles, remove the pillow and hand fluff. The pillows may still be damp inside even when they feel dry to the touch. Any lumps, clumps, or smell of fill indicates dampness; continue to dry until you are sure there is no moisture left in your pillow.
Between washings, the pillow can be refluffed on an air fluff setting in the dryer. Include a couple of clean tennis balls and a fabric softener sheet for extra fluff and a fresh smell. You can also place your pillow into a dryer with a damp washcloth on a low (not hot) heat setting for 15-20 minutes for the same result.
How to Clean a Feather Bed
Cover your feather bed with a feather bed protector or a fitted sheet. Feather beds should be properly covered like a mattress to help prevent damage from spills and stains.
Gently shake a new feather bed and air it out for a few hours to allow the feathers to fluff up. On a regular basis we also suggest fluffing, flipping, and rotating your feather bed. If your feather distribution becomes uneven, simply redistribute the fill by placing the feather bed on a flat surface and pushing the feathers to the desired location. To push the feathers, use the palm of your hand and your forearm.
A feather bed should be treated like an extension of your mattress. Minor spills or soiling of the feather bed itself should be spot cleaned. If more extensive cleaning is required, consult a professional dry cleaner.
If your feather bed becomes wet or damp, be sure to dry it completely or the fill may mildew or decompose.
