How to wash pillows?

No matter how careful we are, things that are in close contact with a person need disinfection from time to time. The question arises - is it possible to wash the pillows? Since they are not disposable, then it is possible and even necessary! So, let's talk today about how to wash the pillows. There are several solutions. It all depends on your own desire and money. Pillows can be dry-cleaned, they will do whatever they need with them. Let's hope for it. Now offers a lot of options, and even with the replacement of napernika (this is what the pillow filler is in). And, as they say, you can effortlessly get a clean pillow.

If the pillow filling is artificial, there are no questions here - we put it in the washing machine (be sure to read the corresponding icons on the label), and we get a clean pillow. Is it possible to wash feather pillows? Now everyone has washing machines at home (I hope), and when we want to wash a down jacket, we usually put it there, and wait for the result.Then, turning inside out so as not to get burned by the battery (the temperature and coating of the batteries are different) we wait for drying. Shake to flush the content, and ready.

How to wash a down pillow? And will it remain intact? Differences with a feather pillow, you can say no! We carry out the following actions boldly, the results are checked! Again, there are two ways:

  • We unpack a napernik (we erase it separately, it is possible in the washing machine). We shift the down or feather in a separate bag. It must be made of gauze, it must be larger than the bedtick, so that it is easier to wash. And the feather is dipped into a powder or solution of household soap diluted with water and zhamkayem. Repeat these steps several times. If the water is very dirty, then we change the soap or powder solution, and repeat the procedure again. Then we rinse in clean water (until the water is transparent), wring out, but without effort. Lay out to dry, turning from time to time. After drying, we put it back in the napernik and sew up the edge.
  • We take a pillow in our hands and look through the edges well so that there are no holes in the napernik or torn seams.And it is better that there would be no irreparable happenings with a washing machine, we sew a new bag or sew a pillow (well) in a larger pillowcase. Put in the washing machine, pour the powder (preferably odorless), increase the amount of water and rinses. The temperature is set to no more than 40 °. We are waiting for the end of the wash. We take out of the bag. We lay out to dry on the street (if summer) or on the battery (if winter). From time to time you need to shake so that the feathers or fluff do not crumble. The best way for this method is a machine with a capacity of more than 5 kg.

A person can do anything. May throw out old pillows and buy new ones. It can take a dry cleaning, and can wash themselves. Everyone will find for themselves the correct and convenient way.
