Keep your pillows feeling and looking fresh by washing them! Many do not realize you can actually wash your bed pillows. Before we get into how to wash your pillows, let’s discuss the WHY.
Pillows are with us every evening, they spend many hours with us! However, that also means pillows absorb buildup such as sweat, saliva etc. This is why it is frugal and healthy to wash your pillows, recommended twice a year.
First, double check that your pillow is not marked, “dry clean only”. Then wash on warm water and delicate. You can wash 2 bed pillows at a time in most washers. Then sufficiently dry your pillow on moderate heat, you do not want the pillow to be damp at all when it hits your bed again. Prevent filling clumping by using a dryer ball (or tennis ball).
This will keep your old pillows lasting longer and staying fresh!
