As is known, pillows for pregnant women can be used after the birth of the baby, as well as just to relax mom. Naturally, you will need to provide the proper level of care for bedding so that it will please you with its cleanliness and practicality for a very long time. So, how to wash an orthopedic pillow.
By the way, care measures begin from the moment you purchase the product. So, you will definitely need to pre-wash the pillowcase. Indeed, pillowcases are sewn from hypoallergenic safe materials, but during transportation they will come into contact with various surfaces, which leads to dust accumulation. To prevent the pillowcase from shrinking during washing, ensure that the water temperature does not exceed 40 degrees. For washing, you can use the washing machine by setting the appropriate mode.
As for the current basic care, it is extremely simple, because fillers such as artificial swan down and holofiber do not absorb odors, do not clump and do not accumulate skin secretions. The basis of such a fiber is high-tech polyester, which perfectly retains its original shape, so that the aesthetics and quality of the product will remain unchanged for a long time.
The simplicity of solving the question of how to wash pillows with balls is explained by the following properties of such a filler:
- the filler is an unfavorable environment for the growth of dust mites or the development of fungi, as well as mold. Accordingly, an allergenic environment is not formed here,
- the material does not absorb the secretions of the sebaceous glands, sweat and moisture, as well as various odors from the environment,
- the structure of the filler is airy, which ensures its perfect ventilation.
So you do not have to fluff, air or dry the pillow every day — it will be enough if you can hang the product in the sun once every six months, thereby ensuring the flow of fresh air. The pillow can also be knocked out from dust or washed. Even after washing, the products keep their shape perfectly, so no additional measures are required for this.
You can use any method to wash a down pillow, and as often as necessary. At the same time, you are guaranteed the preservation of both quality and appearance. And the use of detergents, and vertical drying, and spinning in a centrifuge, and hand drying (even with soaking), as well as machine washing will not lead to damage or delamination of the filler.
However, you still need to take care of the product — so, you should not subject it to stretching or twisting. Do not forget to fluff the pillow every time after sleep — this is not difficult to do, but the effect will be obvious. It is also important to wash your pillowcase regularly, which will allow you to maintain personal hygiene.
If for some reason it is inconvenient for you to do the laundry yourself, then you can safely give the pillow to the dry cleaner. Proper care ensures that even after a few years the pillow will remain comfortable.
