This is how to dry your fibre duvets and pillows
Shake to proper shape
After spinning, you only need to shortly shake your duvet or pillow to its proper shape and hang it up or place it on a laundry rack for drying.
Do not tumble dry too hot
You can also use a tumble dryer at a reduced temperature up to 40°C (e.g. programme for delicates). High temperatures may result in a melting of the fibres.
Avoid residual moisture
Take your fibre duvet (or fibre pillow) from the tumble dryer, shake it and let it aerate. If it is still moist, repeat the drying process at the same temperature.
Do not overload the drum
Do not overload the dryer as this may lead to an accumulation of heat resulting in a melting of the fibre filling.

Highest drying temperature
For drying, select the highest temperature of the dryer. Down and feather products shall be dried in at least three cycles with 30 minutes each. Between the individual cycles, let them aerate for about an hour and shake them several times. Please note that you must not dry the Glamour, Sensation and Luxury collections in domestic tumble dryers.
The right drum size
For bedding with a filling of more than 850 grams, we recommend a 10-kg tumble dryer. You can also bring the products to a laundromat and have them washed and dried according to the care instructions.
Avoid residual moisture
Check the bedding for residual moisture and dry again if necessary. Avoid residual moisture by all means. Down duvets and pillows are sensitive natural products which may be damaged by moisture.
Use drying balls
We recommend to use our Centa-Star washing and drying balls in the dryer. This will ensure a uniform drying of down and feather products giving them back their original volume.
By the way, do not vacuum your down duvet or pillow as the cover may lose its downproof property. In addition, small feathers may be sucked through resulting in a volume loss.
This is how to care for your special and neck support pillows
Cores cannot be washed
The cores of the pillow bar and the neck support pillows cannot be washed. If need be, you can remove the fabric casing and wipe off the core with a damp cloth. Let it thoroughly dry.
Do not tumble dry the Relax Smartpillow
You can wash your Relax Smartpillow at 40°C. Please not that the Relax Smartpillow is not tumble dryer safe. The high temperatures in the dryer could damage the sensor in the core of the pillow.
All casings washable
All casings of our special and neck support pillows and the mattress toppers are washable – many of them are also tumble dryer safe (exceptions are e.g. the special pillows of the Relax series and the Vario Space pillow bar casing). Please observe the respective washing recommendation.
Let the bedding thoroughly dry
For neck support and special pillows, it’s the same as for other pillows: let them thoroughly dry after sleeping. This reduces the number of mites and prolongs the life of your pillow.
