Why You Should Be Cleaning Your Pillows with Sunlight

When it comes to depressing bedding, flat pillows are the ultimate womp womp. (Seconded only by threadbare sheets with ink stains on them.) Bring frumpy favorites back to life with this trick. 

What you need: Sad, flattened pillows, and a sunny outdoor spot you can park them. (Think a hammock or on top of a patio table where pets can’t reach them.) 

What you do: Schedule an afternoon for fluffing and lay a pillow out in the sun. Then, flip after two to three hours for fluffing on the reverse side.

Why it works: Sunlight dries flattening moisture and revives the stuffing. Who knew?
