How to wash your pillows

Pillows. I love pillows. I mean, my husband thinks I’m crazy but a great pillow just makes me happy. Now bed pillows aren’t quite the same. I love a good bed pillow but they’re really hard to come by and they can get quite pricey. I especially hate when I go to a hotel and the pillows aren’t comfy. Boo!!!

I have searched for a great bed pillow at a decent price and have found a few good ones. Here’s the problem, pillows can get gross. They get flat and lumpy after a while if they’re poly-filled or “feel like a bag of cotton balls” if you ask my husband. It sounds comfy but it’s not. Lumpy is not good. You know what else is not good, stains. We all sweat when we sleep, you do too! Have you ever taken a pillow case off and wondered how it got stained and discolored? Sweat! Gross, huh?

Today I’m excited to show you How to Wash and Dry Pillows to get your favorite one looking (and smelling!) clean! YAY! 

Persil ProClean Power-Caps

Some things are much harder to launder than others.  Let’s face it, laundry itself is hard to keep up with. It’s seriously my nemesis. I decided to try Persil ProClean (available exclusively at Walmart) for this project and I was shocked at the results.

I decided to give my kiddos pillows a spin (see what I did there?) since the little boys’ pillows seem to get the most wear. I was intrigued by the Persil ProClean Power-Caps. They have a brightness formula built into the pre-measured capsule so I was excited to try it.

Here are some tips on How to Wash and Dry Pillows!

Simply place two pillows in your washer, if you just do one, it won’t be balanced so throw two in there and add a Persil Power-Cap.  Run white pillows on the hot water cycle.

Next, throw the two pillows and a few tennis balls in the dryer. The balls help fluff the pillows as they dry.

Holy white Batman! They came out ridiculously bright, clean and smelling amazing! Seriously, like brand new!

The Power-Pearls have also been amazing on my white bedding in my bedroom. I have four rambunctious little boys that love to wrestle on my bed so Power-Pearls are my secret weapon to keeping my bedding bright white!

  1. Thank you so much for this post. I need to wash my pillows but did not know the correct way to get them really clean!

  2. I always worried about the pillows getting flattened in the dryer. I didn’t know that you could put tennis balls in there to help fluff them up. This was really fun to read and very helpful. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Great article! This method will be effective to wash most generic pillows. However I do not recommend washing a memory foam pillow(especially bamboo pillows). The aggressive movement could crumble the memory foam.
