When Did You Last Clean The Pillows You Are Sleeping On? Here’s How To Do It!!!
Let’s face it – we all clean our bedsheets and pillowcases as often as we can, but no one washes the pillows.
But, according to experts this is a thing we must do regularly.
If you can’t remember the last time you washed your pillows, don’t worry – neither do we. However, changing the pillowcases every now and then isn’t enough – according to Robert Oexman, head of the Sleep To Live Institute, we should also wash our pillows at least twice a year, and change them regularly.
If your pillows are suitable for washing in the washing machine, put two of them inside and wash them at the highest temperature.
Always wash two pillows together to avoid damage from the high speed machine drum.
Pillows can get a yellowish tint after a while, but not everyone notices it due to them being covered with pillowcases. However, the yellow color is an indication that they need to be cleaned.
Put your pillow in the washing machine along a cup of bleaching powder, a cup of washing powder, some water and 2-3 tablespoons of baking soda and your pillows will be pearly white again.
Before washing, check the label of the pillows to see the highest temperature they can be washed and squeeze them nicely in the end to allow them to dry fast.
You should never make the mistake of sleeping on a wet pillow, so let them dry completely before putting them on your bed.
