                         How to care for down pillow and comforters

 

Down pillows and comforters are luxurious on cold winter nights, but they also require special care. The rule of thumb is: While this may be a nightmare for OCD sufferers or hypochondriacs, the rule of thumb is: The less often you clean your comforter or pillow, the longer it will last. All you need to do is follow the steps to ensure continually comfy nights with a reliable down pillow. Does this Spark an idea?

 

 

Instructions

  1. Caring for a Down Pillow

    • 1

      Cover your pillow with a pillow case at all times. This will keep your pillow free from dust, dirt and body oils.

    • 2

      Buy a pillow cover with a zipper for an extra layer of protection under your pillow case. This will also help those who have allergies.

    • 3
    • Clean the pillow cover and case regularly to keep your pillow fresh.

    • 4

      Launder or dry-clean your pillow yearly.

    • 5

      Spot-treat any stains before you wash your pillow if you're going to machine wash it.

    • 6

      Wash the pillow in cold water using a detergent that has a degreaser so that oils are removed. Follow the pillow manufacturer's instructions for specific detergents to use.

    • 7

      Very gently squeeze out any excess water from the pillow after washing.

    • 8

      Dry the pillow with the dryer set on its lowest setting; put a tennis ball in with the pillow so that the fill moves as it dries.

    • 9

      Store your pillow in a dry and well-ventilated closet or room when you are not using it, in order to avoid mildew.
