A Guide to Down Pillow Care: Cleaning, Fluffing, and Storing

A good night’s sleep is vital for our health and well-being, and a comfortable pillow is an essential part of that experience. Down pillows are favoured for their luxurious softness and support, but they require a little extra care to ensure they remain in top condition. In this blog, we will guide you how to clean, fluff, and store your down pillows to prolong their life and maintain their comfort.

Cleaning Your Down Pillow

  • Frequency: We generally recommended to clean down pillows every six months to one year, depending on personal preference. However, using our pillow protector can extend the time between cleanings.
  • Washing: Spot cleaning with soft soap is recommended. We do not recommend machine wash. However, dry cleaning is highly recommended.
  • Drying: You can air-dry the down pillow by laying it flat in a well-ventilated area and turning it occasionally to ensure even drying. Ensure the pillow is completely dry before using or storing it to prevent mold and mildew.

Fluffing Your Down Pillow

  • Daily Fluffing: Fluffing your down pillow daily helps maintain its shape and loft. Quite simply hold the pillow by its corners and shake it back and forth to redistribute the down.
  • Occasional Fluffing: For a more thorough fluffing, place the pillow in the dryer on low heat setting with dryer balls or clean tennis balls for 10 – 15 minutes. This process will help to redistribute the down and revive the pillow’s loft.

Storing Your Down Pillow

  • Long-term Storage: If you need to store your down pillow for an extended period of time, ensure to place it in our storing bag. All of our down-filled bedding products come with a storing bag. You can store it in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight.

In conclusion, taking proper care of your down pillow is essential to extend its lifespan and maintain its luxurious comfort. By cleaning, fluffing, and storing our pillow correctly, you can enjoy a great night’s sleep for years to come. We truly mean it when we say: Better Sleep. Better Days.
