The average person spends one-third of their life sleeping; therefore, the comfort and support of your pillow are essential. Once you’ve found that perfect pillow, you’ll want to do everything you can to make it last. Luckily, with the proper care, your down pillow can last for many years. To help you know how to care for feather pillows, we’ve created this helpful step-by-step guide on how to care for feather pillows.
Caring for A Feather Pillow
Always Use A Pillow Cover
The best and easiest way to ensure the life of a feather pillow is to cover it with a pillow cover. Using a pillow cover with a zipper will create an extra layer of protection from dust, dirt, and body oils.
Clean the pillow cover regularly
Although down pillows only need to be cleaned twice a year, the pillow cover needs to be cleaned monthly. This frequent cleaning will help remove dust mites and keep your pillow fresh.
Professionally clean your pillow at least twice a year
Down pillow cleaning should be done by a reputable dry cleaner, like Fashion Cleaners. Professional cleaners have the equipment to ensure the pillow is cleaned and fretted correctly. At Fashion Cleaners, we use an ozone and light process to clean the feathers, then put the clean feathers into new ticking.
Storing your pillow
If you need to store feather pillows, they should always be stored in a dry and well-ventilated closet or room to avoid mildew. Never put the pillow in airtight plastic.
