How can you Deep Clean your Pillow | Eli & Elm

by Eli & Elm Side Sleepers Pillow
Sleeping on a clean pillow is essential for maintaining good hygiene and preventing allergies. Over time, pillows can accumulate dirt, dust mites, and dead skin cells, which can trigger allergic reactions and respiratory problems. To keep your pillows clean and fresh, follow these simple steps for washing your pillows.

Step 1: Check the Care Label
Before washing your pillows, check the care label to make sure they are machine washable. Some pillows may need to be hand washed or dry cleaned. If your pillows are machine washable, proceed to the next step.

Step 2: Remove the Pillowcase and Protector
Remove the pillowcase and any protective covers from the pillow. These should be washed separately according to their care instructions.

Step 3: Pre-Treat Stains
If your pillows have any stains, pre-treat them before washing. Apply a small amount of laundry detergent to the stain and gently rub it in. Let it sit for a few minutes before washing.

Step 4: Wash in the Machine
Place your pillows in the washing machine with a small amount of laundry detergent. Use the gentle cycle and warm water to wash your pillows. Avoid using hot water, as it can damage the filling. If you have a front-loading washing machine, add a couple of towels to balance the load.

Step 5: Rinse and Spin
After the wash cycle is complete, run your pillows through a rinse and spin cycle to ensure that all the detergent is removed. This will also help to fluff up your pillows.

Step 6: Dry Thoroughly
Place your pillows in the dryer and add a few dryer balls or clean tennis balls to help fluff up the filling. Use the low heat or air-dry setting to dry your pillows. Avoid using high heat, as it can damage the filling. Make sure your pillows are completely dry before using them again.

Additional Tips:
  1. If you have down or feather pillows, add a few tennis balls to the dryer to prevent the filling from clumping together.
  2. For memory foam pillows, spot clean them with a mild detergent and water. Do not put them in the washing machine or dryer.
  3. To keep your pillows fresh between washes, fluff them up daily and air them out in the sun.

In conclusion, washing your pillows is an essential part of maintaining good hygiene and preventing allergies. Follow these simple steps to keep your pillows clean and fresh, and enjoy a good night's sleep on a clean pillow.
