Duvets are bedspreads that traditionally have a washable removable cover. A duvet also can be the cover itself, purchased separately from the quilt. Duvets can add a new color palette to a room or make an inexpensive bedspread look stylish. Duvets can also be quite expensive; some of the higher-quality duvets can cost hundreds of dollars. Hard-to-clean stains, including blood stains, can be removed from your duvet at home, potentially saving you a large amount of money on replacement or professional cleaning.

Things You'll Need

  • Sink
  • Stopper
  • Cold water
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Medicine dropper
  • Washing machine
  • Laundry soap
  • Color-safe bleach

Place the duvet into the washing machine on the “cold” setting with laundry soap.
