If your pillows aren't as white as they used to be, then give them a natural cleaning that leaves them looking like new. Pillows should be washed twice a year; taking a few extra minutes to transform them from dingy to glowing make pillows feel fresh. Don't forget: naturally whitening your pillows costs much less than picking up a new set.
Read on for the directions.
What You'll Need:
- 1 cup hydrogen peroxide
- 1/2 cup vinegar
- Laundry detergent
- Laundry booster
- Toss your dingy pillows in the washing machine, and set to soak. Washing two at a time balances your washing machine so they clean evenly. Now add the hydrogen peroxide and vinegar to the drum of the washing machine. Hydrogen peroxide is a natural whitener, and vinegar tackles deep-set stains.
- Once the soak cycle has run, wash the pillows with your regular liquid detergent along with laundry booster. A laundry booster enhances your detergent's abilities, seriously cleaning the pillows. You can use your favorite brands, or try making your own.
- Remove the pillows from the washing machine, and be amazed by their fresh whiteness. Toss the pillows in the dryer, and you're ready to make the bed.
