I am having a hard time finding information on how to clean/cure/sanitize etc. goose down after it is plucked. I want to make a crib comforter for my baby. I've seen a few postings saying to let them "cure" for a few years? I saw something about putting them into the oven at 270 deg to "kill the microbes".... I was thinking about placing them between a couple of window screens over the bathtub and spraying with a solution of "charlies soap" and rinsing and drying... What I am dealing with is about 90% down from geese and ducks. some of it had the gooey ends. and no, I am not interested in or worried about sorting it out. Has anyone done any of this or other ideas? Thanks for the help!
