Recently, some friends have asked you about the peculiar smell of down quilts. What is going on? Generally, goose down quilts have no smell, or have a faint smell of goose. But duck down has a fishy smell, because ducks are omnivores and eat small fish, shrimps, earthworms and so on, so they have a little fishy smell.
In addition, other particularly pungent smells or particularly heavy fishy smells in duvets are unqualified products. The main reason is the use of other chemical additives, inferior raw materials or the smell caused by insufficient cleaning times of down comforters. Such quilts should be purchased with caution.
So, what should you do if the duck or goose down quilt you just bought smells when you open it?
1. If the goose down quilt has a slight smell when it is opened, it is usually because the inner membrane bag of the quilt has been closed for a long time and the remaining smell cannot be released in time. Open it in a ventilated place to dry for 2 hours.
2. If there is a fishy smell when the eiderdown quilt is opened, you can squeeze out the original air in the quilt and fill it with new air. After repeated 2 to 3 (times/day), the smell disappears or lightens; air in a ventilated place for 1 to 2 days.Rongda is a professional duck feather wholesale supplier and manufacturer in China, with more than 20 years of experience, welcome to contact us!
