Are your pillows yellowed? Are you are looking for a way to bring them back to their old glory? This method of washing will make your pillows look like if they were new. Simple method, great results. Let’s get started!
Things You Need:
Lavender essential oil (optional)
Start by running your washing machine on the hottest setting and for a large load. Add laundry detergent to the running water in the washer. Add what you would typically use for a full load of laundry.
Add 1/2 cup of washing soda to the wash. Washing soda will help lift any stains and whiten your pillows. For a fresh, relaxing scent, add five drops of lavender essential oils to the wash. Place up to two pillows at a time in the washing machine once detergent and washing soda have been added.
Once the washing machine has stopped, place the pillows in the dryer on low heat for a full cycle. This will dry and fluff your pillows and help restore them to their original shape.
Tip: To see if it is time to replace your bed pillows, fold them in half. When you let go, if they pop back to normal, keep them. If they stay folded, it’s time to invest in new pillows.
