Can you donate old quilts?

Duvets and pillows are not recyclable; however some animal charities may be able to use them for bedding. Otherwise, they should be put in the general waste.

Do animal shelters take old duvets?

Most charity shops will not now accept duvets which have been used. A local animal shelter, animal rescue charity or shelter for the homeless may also be grateful for donations of duvets or indeed any unwanted bedding such as blankets.

Do the Salvation Army take duvets?

* Unfortunately we are unable to accept VHS cassettes, mattresses, curtains, rolls of fabric and stuffed bedding items such as duvets, pillows and sleeping bags, or anything damaged by damp.

Can you machine-wash an old quilt?

Wash it with quilt wash on a gentle cycle in a front-loading machine, if possible. Rinse and spin twice to remove all residues. To dry, lay the quilt flat on a sheet outdoors or on a bed. If drying it outdoors, cover the quilt with another sheet to protect it from passing birds.
