We all wash our sheets, pillow cases, duvet covers, quilts, blankets (etc etc) on a regular basis. They get dirty, they get filled with dead skin (yuck), and mine get filled with dog hair and whatever else she chooses to bring in to the house. But, how often do you wash your pillows????
I never did… And by the time they got all yellow from sweat, wet hair after a shower, and drool, I would throw them out and purchase new ones. But I always got cheap pillows for this reason. So when I finally discovered how nice it was to use quality pillows, I wanted a way to keep them. Enter Pinterest, and recipes/instructions on how to machine wash pillows.
And voila! Your pillows are clean, fresh, and sanitary again!
*I use the Tide Pods to do my laundry, so I threw in 1 pod with 4 pillows and 1/2 c baking soda. We also have those blue plastic dryer balls that I threw in with the tennis balls, just in case it provided extra fluff.
