Can anyone recommend good quality vac bags for long term storage of a king size duvet please, I've used some but they don't last long, not even a year with some. Thanks.

I need to know, too! :-D :-D :-D

Says she, with her winter duvet in a vacuum bag, that is taped shut with duct tape!!!

When I read the headline on the post I thought you were looking for the disposable bags for vacuum cleaners! Whoops, sorry.

Jacqueline - you are not alone. :-D

ZZzzz - do you mean those bags where you suck all the air out? Not that I know anything about them.

I have never used them, but they sell them at Lakeland, which is a bit pricey but usually very good quality. They say it holds a king size duvet and 4 pillows!!

Thank you Bobtanian, I haven't the telly on for about a month so wouldn't have seen them.
nameslessone, yes that is the ones I mean.

These are the ones I have bought from Amazon. Had them for a while and appear to be ok.

Thanks Von, I've ordered them and they will be delivered tomorrow :-D
