Cleaning a Down sleeping bag?

Ive just scored myself a nice fairydown gore dryloft, Superlite sleeping bag for $90. Its in great condition, but would like to clean and sanitise it. I was reading that you can dryclean down bags with no problems, is this true? In the past ive done it by hand using that special sports wash detergent, the bag would get clumps, but would come right once dry, but if its better to dryclean these, then i will do that as long as i know its safe. TIA

Update on my tiny GoLite sleeping bag: I got the bottom seam at the foot converted into a drawstring by Twin Needle. Very robust and excellent job. I used it this w/e at 380m a.s.l. camping under the forest canopy along with my thin duvet jacket, fleece trousers over the long johns, a chenille tube around my lower back and a down hoody as a neck muff plus a 2 layer hat and my usual neck muff. I was barely warm enough though I started off with the feet sticking out! I could have added a thicker duvet jacket though.
