What's female ejaculate doing to my duvet?

My girlfriend is a prolific (ahem) 'gusher', and I'd appreciate any laundry/bedding tips. Presumably NSFW.

So, I have a newish girlfriend (me being male, btw) who produces a lot of liquid when she orgasms; volume enough to soak through a thick duvet cover and get the mattress soggy.
This is new to me, and sex-wise doesn't bother me in the slightest - what is of concern is quite what effect this is going to have on my mattress, sheets, duvet cover, etc. I've read up what Google has to offer, which is long on analysis of what exactly the stuff is, and short on if this is going to make my (duck feather, difficult to launder) duvet cover start to smell funny after a while, and if my (coloured cotton) sheets are going to get unsubtly bleached patches in the middle, not to mention if my (sprung) mattress is going to get be-whiffed.
She's previously not had orgasms during sex, only when masturbating, which she's done in baths, on towels, or wipe-clean environments, so doesn't really have any relevant advice to offer (except that apparently towels do begin to smell if she doesn't wash them.)
I really don't want to start putting down towels before sex, getting special plastic sheets, or make her feel uncomfortable about her body. (I also have no desire for her to hold back, btw.)
So what I'm after is advice or experience from anyone about likely effects on bedding etc, how to manage or mitigate such things, plus if there are any commercial products to subtly aid absorption, protect mattresses, etc.
(The liquid is definitely different to urine; fairly clear, and no acrid smell that I can detect, and, err, I've never tasted urine, but I don't think it tastes like that.)
