Does this look familiar? I washed my sheets and pillow cases the other day and was horrified to see the condition of my pillows. They were so gross! I almost threw them away, but I found this awesome hack for cleaning your pillows and making them last as long as possible.
Did you know you should be changing out your pillow every 4-6 months? If you have a high-quality memory foam pillow, they can last up to two years. One way to get the most out of your pillows is to wash them. No, I don’t mean, “spray them with Fabreeze,” I mean actually wash them. See how it’s done in the video below!
There are a few reasons our pillows turn yellow or even brown. First of all, we all sweat in our sleep. This is the biggest cause of discoloration in pillows and sheets as well. There are also some skin products or makeup products that tend to stain pillows. Plus, when you consider all of the natural oils our skin produces, it’s no wonder our pillows need replacing every few months!
This easy method for cleaning pillows involves tossing them in the wash and adding a few simple ingredients you already have on hand. Grab some hydrogen peroxide, lemon juice, and white vinegar, and get to sanitizing those pillows!
