Then, can you throw away a comforter?

A comforter made of cotton or cotton blends, and stuffed with cotton batting, polyester or down feathers, eventually wears out. It may be at the end of use (worn out and damaged), or it may have outlived its use to you. Throwing the comforter away is not ideal. You can contribute by recycling your old comforter.

Additionally, can you use an old comforter as a duvet insert? Yes, a duvet cover can be used on a comforter. And of course, you should use a duvet cover on a comforter. A duvet cover protects your comforter. The process of putting your duvet cover on the comforter is not that difficult if you take the right steps.

Accordingly, what do you do with old comforters?
