How to get blood out of a duvet
Hydrogen peroxide helps to remove blood stains from your duvet. (bedroom - home interiors image by Gina Smith from

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 colour 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.
