A comforter is a thick functional, durable blanket that is designed to sit on top of your bed. A comforter comes in all sizes such as twin, double, queen, king and California king. When a comforter is used, it generally only covers the top of the bed and requires a bed skirt to cover the box spring. The negative side to a comforter is that many times it requires special cleaning requirements. Many times the comforter needs to either be cleaned by a dry cleaning professional, or taken to the local laundry mat to be cleaned due to it’s size. This practical bedding is used mainly in the wintertime to provide warmth to the consumer.
A bedspread is a covering that not only covers the top of your bed, it also hangs low enough to cover the box spring. A bedspread is thinner than a comforter and is thought to be used for decoration purposes rather than functionality, however this is a useful bedding to have in the summer and warm months. This bedding gives you cover without the heat that the comforter provides. A bedspread also comes in twin, double, queen, king and California king sizes. The bedspread is easier to clean than a comforter as bedspreads normally can be machine wash and tumble dried. This allows for easy cleaning.

Cleaning and care
Cleaning and care of comforters and bedspreads depends on the materials used and the size of the bedding. If the product is made of cotton material it is easier to clean. For gentler material it is suggested that you take the bedding to the dry cleaner, that way if the product is ruined it is the responsibility of the dry cleaner. There is a small fee that comes with the dry cleaner. The down side of taking it to the dry cleaner is the inconvenience. If you take it to the dry cleaner you could be without bedding for several days. There are also extra large washing machines and dryers at local laundry mats for your usage. Many times the price of the extra large machines is twice that of the regular washing machines and dryers. Many times you need to pay twice for the dryer as the size and the material do not dry as quickly.
When to replace the comforters and bedspreads
Many stores provide “lifetime guarantees” of their product. Many times this is not needed as the purchaser of the product changes the look of their room and attempts to match the bedding to the décor of the room. In most cases the purchaser of the product never sees the full life of their bedding.
