Keeping this in consideration, can you wash a comforter at a laundromat?

Your comforter needs adequate room to get thoroughly clean, so if your home washing machine looks too small to fit the comforter, take it to a laundromat and use one of the large, front-load washers. Set the washing machine to the delicate setting and select the water temperature.

How often should you wash your comforter?

Sheets: The rule of thumb is to wash and/or change your sheets on a weekly basis. You can get away with every other week if weekly seems too much for you. Comforter: Bulkier blankets and duvets need to be washed typically 2-3 times per year. If you have a duvet cover, simply slip it off and throw it in the wash.

How can I freshen my down comforter?

Spray the comforter with just enough water to make the outer covering a little damp. Place a dryer sheet in with the comforter, and set it on the "fluff" or "no heat" option with a new tennis ball. This will make your comforter smell fresh, air it out inside and refluff the down filling.
