Another decision done! I've washed and ironed the duvet cover that we ordered on Overstock.com and brought back from California.
We, that is I... goofed. I washed the comforter I bought at Target and put it in the dryer. Although the directions said to tumble dry, the comforter could not tumble very much because it was too big. Hence, it melted a little and the fabric covering tore. I've mended it as best I could and it will do for now until I find something stronger. Doesn't matter much anyway since the comforter is hidden by the duvet cover.
Ah well... it's OK for now.
At least the decision is over and we can sleep with it.
Lesson Learned: Next time, I'll find a laundromat and use their big dryers. Hopefully, I won't be burned twice.
Thank you, everybody, for helping us make this decision!
