Washing Down quilt ? (another) on 10/20/2010 09:37:00 MDT Print View

The recent thread on down clumping leads me to ask this question:

Can I wash my down items in my TOP loader (GASP!)? Mine is different than other top loaders as it doesn't have an agitator of any kind, but relies on faster spinning.

Will super-fast spinning cause damage to the baffles, etc?

Good question. on 10/22/2010 22:13:45 MDT Print View

If your top loader has no agitator...which is the main agitator to using a top loader with a down quilt...I'd think it would be fine. You could always wash it in the non-agitated top loader, then spread it out to dry outside...every hour or so just pick it up, fluff it around, and keep doing that until it's dry...

I use a Jacks'R'Better Sierra Sniveller, but as of yet have not had a need to wash it...
