Cotton Batting

  • Do not put quilts stuffed with cotton batting in the washing machine—the stuffing will get bunched up and clumpy.
  • Hand-wash in a large laundry tub or bathtub.  Use ½ cup vinegar to help dissolve all the soap suds.  Do not put in the dryer—line dry outside, preferably in the sun.
  • If line drying isn’t an option, take the comforter to a dry cleaner to be washed and dried instead.
