How Do You Wash And Dry Pillows?
August 23, 2017 11:27am CST
I finally unwrapped the two king-sized Dakki pillows I was given last Christmas. They are vacuum-packed so the instruction was to "Tap the flat sides repeatedly. Expect pillows to have its normal shape and firmness in 2 to 3 days." Well, I sure hope so because they're still not fluffy or high enough for me! The instruction on how to wash these polyester fiber pillows was to "Manually wash with ordinary detergent. Do not bleach. Squeeze pillow to remove excess water then sun dry." Hmm. I don't know anyone who manually washes their pillows. How do you wash and dry your pillows? Or do you just dispose them and buy new ones?

i brought home some pillows from Kuwait and until now, these pillows are still sealed. our pillows are made of the local cotton, the kapok, that tall tree which bears the 'kapas sanglay' where we use the narra chair with the woven seat, where the cotton seeds are removed.

@hereandthere Our pillows are not too big . . . maybe 2 at a time? I've put them in the dryer for maybe 10-15 minutes on delicate and air dry the rest. I nearly messed up our washer by trying to wash a big heavy comforter - so I'm super careful what I put in there now.
