How To: Wash Your Pillow

Having an old lady moment, so forgive me, but I found this really, really helpful. Germs are icky, so follow these simple steps from CasaSugar to wash your pillows. 

To wash feather and down pillows:
  • Fill your sink 3/4 with warm water and a scoop of powdered laundry detergent. 
  • Squish your pillow under the water until it's completely soaked, squeezing it gently.
  • Then, drain your sink and wring your pillow to squeeze out the water.
  • Place your pillow on a towel and roll it up to pull out more water.
  • Then, pop it in the dryer with a few clean white towels and dry it on low-moderate heat. If you want, add a tennis ball to make it fluffy.
  • Hang it on the line to let it dry completely.

To wash synthetic or foam pillows:
  • Machine-wash your pillow on the gentle cycle with powder detergent and warm water.
  • Dry on moderate heat with clean towels, as above. 

In the market for new pillows? Overstock has a great selection - it's just silly to get pillows from a place like Bed Bath & Beyond when you can get the same for less. 

And in other news, this is creepy and can be yours for only $28.99.


  1. Oh new meaning to those ugly pillows we called "husbands" back in college...that is beyond creepy!

  2. OMG, that is so weird. Haha. But this post was useful, nonetheless. Feather pillows definitely need to be washed at my house.
