nights of decent sleep. Well, luckily, we have our expert tips on
choosing the right tog in your duvet for you.

Children actually need lighter togs than adults,
as the duvets can hold more air around their smaller bodies, and
get them toasty warm more quickly. The ideal tog rating for a child
is 4.5 tog, however duvets are definitely not recommended for
children under 1. So give your child a comfy night's sleep, with a
perfect tog-rated duvet.
Consider your allergies!
If you suffer from any allergies, all year round
or just for a particular season, listen up! Allergies tend to
increase in the summertime, and 25% of all allergies and 50% of all
asthmatic conditions are from allergens produced by the house dust

Silentnight Anti-Allergy range includes
duvets, pillows and protectors to help with this.

Well, you're in for a surprise! As in the summertime especially you
are likely to sweat more, it can go through to your mattress and

mattress and have a good clean night's sleep.
No more duvet overload

Wash your bedding and store it away
Washing your bedding regularly is very
important, as it helps to give you a good clean night's sleep. Your
synthetic hollowfibre bedding can be washed quite easily and safely
at home, so make sure it's dry before storing it in your protective
covers. Rewash it and dry and air thoroughly before placing it back
on your bed when it comes to the winter time.
