Awww, what the hell, yojim -
I’ll bite. We recently purchased a beautiful huge warm toasty (white) down comforter. We have 2 cats. We moseyed over and bought a cover (a nice olive green) to put OVER the beast. It is soft and comfy, and every couple of weeks we can TAKE THE COVER OFF and throw it in the washer. Good as new. Now, try throwing your down comforter in the washer. Your wife will kill you, and it will never dry. It’s also quite expensive to clean down bedspreads. Basically, the answer is: “Why do you wear shoes?..” Because they protect my feet from nastiness and I don’t want to run to the podiatrist every fortnight to fix something that wouldn’t have happened if I was wearing my Converse.
Also, you can change the color scheme of your boudoir and just get another cover.
