How to Wash Your Down Pillows

To effectively wash your down pillows and maintain their loft and comfort, start by using a front-loading washing machine, as it's gentler on the pillows compared to top-loaders with agitators. Place two pillows in the machine to keep it balanced, and use a small amount of mild detergent suitable for delicate items. Opt for a gentle wash cycle with warm water and include an extra rinse to remove all soap residue. Dry the pillows on low heat with a few tennis balls or dryer balls in the dryer to fluff the down and prevent clumping. Make sure the pillows are completely dry before using them to avoid mildew. Regular maintenance, including fluffing and periodic washing, can extend the life and comfort of your down pillows.
