Easy Way To Wash and Whiten Yellowed Pillows



Cleaning pillows sounds easy at first. But when you actually have to handle this issue, you realize what a drag it is! Being a responsible person involves whitening your pillows at least once a year. Don’t worry, the whole pillow-washing process is much easier than anticipated. For this you will need the following:

• 1 cup powdered dish washer detergent
• 1 cap of laundry detergent
• 1/2 cup borax
• 1 cup bleach



Open the washing machine and fill a third of it with the very hot water. Pour the detergents and other necessary ingredients in and start the machine. For more follow the link below…

    Good Morning,

    Thank you for sharing the very good tips about washing pillows. What would the process be for front loading washing machines? Unfortunately, I do not have a top loading washing machine. Once I press on the start button, the machine is locked and there is no way I can open the door again. Please do provide some useful ideas for those who have front loading washing machines.

    Thank you very much.

    Nice tip, but why would anyone wait until they turn yellow?
    I wash our pillows just like regular laundry every 2 weeks, so they just stay white and clean..

    If you press the start button while your machine is washing it will blink and unlock the door.

    Feather and down pillows lose a lot of their content with constant washing. If your pillows are stuffed with fluff stuff, then I guess it’s okay to wash often.
    Also, the new machines are tricky with filling. Since the tub is open with no agitator, it makes it harder to judge where the water is and they don’t “waste” water, so they use the lowest possible due to sensors.
    Easier to take them to a professional cleaners….let them judge, I bet theirs look just the same as ours…..the cobbler’s children have no shoes deal….lol.
    Oh, I do wash mine, they are very clean, just yellow. If you don’t like the color, go buy solid white fabric or pillowcases and cover them. Just cut off the old cases……DO NOT open a down or feather pillow, only the stuffed or foam ones and replace old white with new.
    You can’t vacuum enough to get all the down.
