Spring Cleaning and Care for Your Wool Bedding & Home Décor

Spring cleaning comes with plenty of benefits. And it will surely help you fight springtime fatigue. As a matter of fact, getting your body moving while preparing your home for the warmer season is just what you need to feel better. Did you know that spring cleaning has been associated by experts with improved moods, decreased stress levels, and boosted creativity? Bingo! Less clutter equals cleaner air, easier breathing, and less anxiety. So don’t wait another day to start your spring cleaning routines.

We might not be the spring cleaning experts but we surely know how to spring clean and care for your wool items: wool mattresses, wool cushions, wool pillows, wool duvets, and wool rugs. Here we go!

Mattresses and Toppers

  • Spot clean the ticking if needed. It’s always advisable to treat spots immediately. 
  • Vacuum thoroughly both sides of your wool mattress or topper with the upholstery brush attachment of the vacuum cleaner.
  • Let them air out in the sun for a day.
  • Mattress Hack: Use a machine washable mattress protector or a mattress cover. That way you’ll always have a washable barrier that will protect your mattress from dust, dirt, and spills and will help it last longer.

Tufted Cushions

  • Spot clean the cover of the tufted cushion if needed. It’s always advisable to treat spots immediately. 
  • Vacuum thoroughly both sides of your cushion with the upholstery brush attachment of the vacuum cleaner.
  • Let it air out in the sun for a day.

Non-Tufted Cushions

  • Wash the cover. Use gentle cycle, low temperature. Use a mild detergent, without brighteners. Air-dry it completely. Steam iron.
  • Vacuum the insert and let it air out in the sun for a day.

Wool Blankets

  • Hand wash and rinse your wool blankets gently in lukewarm water (around 90º F / 30º C). Use a mild wool detergent. If you use a machine, set it on wool cycle at 90º F / 30º C . Do not tumble dry or bleach. Gently squeeze any excess water. 
  • Air-dry. Make sure the blankets are completely dry before you put them away for the warmer months.
  • Store in a storage bag or plastic box to keep moths and other pests out. To protect from condensation, wrap them in clean cotton fabric. Tuck a lavender sachet bag in the bag. Lavender is the perfect natural moth-repellent. 

Wool Duvets

  • We do not recommend frequent washing of wool duvet inserts. Always use inside a duvet cover. If an incident happens and you need to wash the duvet, however, handwash or use gentle wool cycle, low temperature, no more than 90º F / 30º C, and a mild detergent. Never tumble-dry. Air-dry while completely dry, preferably on a flat surface. 
  • Before putting them in storage for the warmer months, let your wool duvet inserts out in the sun for a day.
  • Store in a storage bag or plastic box to keep moths and other pests out. To protect from condensation, wrap them in clean cotton fabric. Tuck a lavender sachet bag in the bag. Lavender is the perfect natural moth-repellent. Make sure they’re completely dry before you put them away for the summer.

Wool Pillows 

  • Wool Pillow Hack: Always use inside a machine-washable pillow protector and a pillowcase. 
  • Wash the pillow protector. Use gentle cycle, low temperature. Use a mild detergent, without brighteners. Air-dry completely. Steam iron.
  • Let the wool pillow insert air out in the sun for a day.
