How Often You Should Clean Your Pillows

Shaker Run - Monday, October 15, 2018

There’s something many of us are guilty of, forgetting to clean a household item or two. At the top of the list are the pillows we sleep on every night. Unclean pillows harbor dirt and dust – among other things we don’t want to think about – all of which can wreak havoc on your health. 

Washing Your Pillows

Having clean pillows to lay on each night is especially important for those who suffer from allergies. If you find that you’re frequently waking up sneezing, have a sore throat, or a headache your pillow might be the culprit. While it’s important, and helpful, to clean your pillow cases on a regular and frequent schedule, it is suggested to wash your pillows every three months. 


Before taking on this chore, be sure to check the label on your pillows. Many of them will have special care instructions. If it doesn’t, many synthetic pillows or down pillows can be machine washed and dried using low heat. It is also recommended to use a fragrance-free soap that won’t leave a residue. To give your pillows extra fluff while drying, add dryer balls or a tennis ball inside a sock before starting the drying cycle. 


Be careful not to over stuff your washer and dryer, doing so can cause the machines to become off balance and not give your pillows the level of clean they need. Cleaning them two at a time is optimal. 
 
Luckily for our residents, there are many apartments in our community with in-unit washers and dryers and many buildings with laundry rooms on the first floor. Both options allow residents the freedom to wash their pillows as needed without having to spend their day at a laundromat. If these aren’t an option for you where you live, it’s time to find a new place to call home! Schedule your tour of our apartments today!
