It is a heavy kingsize. I managed to squash it into my 7kg machine but it was making this vile noise as it turned so i took it out.

It needs washed and i'd rather not pay £12 at the dry cleaners.

Can i wash it in the bath or will i never get it dried? Would i be able to squeeze enough water out to get it into the washing machine for a spin?

Not unless you have a ten man squad with you. It absorbs its size in water. Is impossible to manoever, squeeze, rinse. Don't do it. Believe me £12 is a bargain to save your sanity.

Gah. Thought so. Dry cleaners it is then.

I tried washing a single duvet in the bath and it took 2 of us to squeeze it out even a bit and then 2 to carry it downstairs in a tuff tub, 2 of us to get it on the line where it stayed for 3 days in the summer and still needed a day inside in the conservatory. It's really not worth it!

Eeep!! Definitely not. Its in the bag for the dry cleaner already.

Why not just take it to the launderette?
