When in doubt, hand ‘em over the kids. Pillows can be used to hold up a blanket fort to hide under or to construct a snowy mountain that needs climbing. (Just be sure to wash the pillows first to prevent anyone’s allergies from acting up.)
How To Clean A Feather, Down Or Polyster Pillow (non-memory Foam Or Latex)
Always check the care label before you wash, but generally you can follow the below instructions.
Step 1: Load two pillows into your washing machine (this helps to keep the machine balanced) and a very small amount of detergent, preferably powder.
Step 2: Run on the gentle cycle.
Step 3: Transfer your pillows to the dryer along with a few tennis balls to help break up any clumps. If your machine has a no-heat air-dry setting, that will be your best option, otherwise run it on delicate. You may need to run your pillows through more than once, but they’ll last much longer if dried using this slow and low method rather than blasting them with heat.
