Attention pillow users! This 'mistake' can make you sick

New Delhi: When was the last time you washed your pillow? We are asking this question because some people think that putting a cover on the pillow can save it from dirt, whereas it is not so. Using the pillow for 6 months without washing it is considered to invite disease. That is why it is necessary to wash not only the cover of the pillow but also the pillow over time. If you are wondering how to wash the pillow, then here we will tell some such ways with the help of which you can clean the pillow at home. Let's know how?

Wash pillow in washing machine

First of all, check the cover of the pillow to see if there is any stain or mark on it. If it is, spray detergent on it before washing it and leave it for 15 minutes. Now put the pillow in the drum of the washing machine. Please note that it is completely safe to wash the pillow in the washing machine. Insert only two pillows at a time, so that they will not collide with each other and will also be washed well.

Proper use of detergent is essential

After this, put the appropriate ie neither too much nor less detergent in the dispenser to wash the pillow. If you are thinking that adding more detergent will wash the pillow well then you are wrong. This will create more foam which will be difficult to remove from the pillow later.

Dryer setting by pillow

Clean the pillow with lukewarm water, and put it in the washing machine and run the ring cycle twice. Make sure that the extra detergent is thoroughly removed from the pillow. After running the wash cycle twice in the washing machine, put the pillow in the dryer. Adjust the settings after putting it in the dryer. Keep in mind that if your pillow is feather, put your dryer on air-fluff-no heat mode. On the other hand, if there is a synthetic pillow, then set the dryer on low heat. Whereas, dry the pillow for about an hour on low to medium heat for fiberfill or extra low or no heat for down-fill.

Tennis ball will help in the dryer

You can use a tennis ball to dry it thoroughly. First of all, take two tennis balls, and put them in clean socks. After this put it in your dryer with the pillow. By doing this you can dry it quickly. Now start your dryer, this will make the pillow look puffy from the back and dry it well.

How often should a pillow be washed?

The pillow should always be washed 3 to 4 times in a year, because the oil, dandruff, sweat in the hair often sticks to the pillow. Within 2 to 3 months, the pillow starts to smell. So try to wash it from time to time. Apart from this, if you feel that the pillow is not in a condition to wash, then change it. Some people change their pillows every 6 months.
