Here are questions related to Cleaning Down Bedding.
I have a down comfortor and a feather bed. The direction says dry clean. I have washed down jackets and vests has anyone had any luck washing comfortors or feather beds.

You can wash all of them. Make sure there are no holes or you will be sorry. Wash in cold water with light detergent on a very gental cycle. Dry on low heat for about 1.5 hours. It says to dryclean only because you bought a cheaper comforter with a water soluable sizing to keep the feathers from popping out. I'm in management for a drycleaner. Trust me.

Make sure you wash it on the gentle cycle so that it does not tear, feathers are everywhere!

Hi Erin... I wash my down comforters all the time, so a sleeping bag should work just as well.
Take it to a laundromat and wash it on gentle cyle.
Then throw it in the largest dryer with 3 or four clean tennis balls or a very clean tennis shoe. The balls or shoe will pound the down and fluff it up. They dry in no time !
