Washing your pillows regularly is an important part of keeping your bedding clean and germ-free. While pillowcases help keep pillows clean, over time they still build up dust, dirt and bacteria. We recommend washing your pillows at least twice a year or when they're visibly dirty or stained. Ready for a cleaner night's sleep? This blog post will explain the steps to washing different types of pillows - most can be washed right at home in your washing machine!
1. Remove the case and any additional protective covers so you're only washing the body of the pillow.2. Place pillow(s) in washing machine. We recommend washing two at once to keep your machine balanced.3. Use a small amount of detergent and wash on the gentle cycle in hot water.4. Run an extra rinse cycle with cold water to remove any remaining soap.5. Tumble dry pillows on low heat, fluffing often. For down and feather pillows, use the no-heat or air-dry setting. If pillows are still damp or have a musty smell, try placing them in a sunny spot inside your home so they can air out and finish drying.
