OMO laundry tips - pillows

Many foam and feather pillows can be washed, but it is worth noting that drying can take a long time. Professional dry cleaning may be a better option, but ensure that the pillows are well aired to get rid of any residual fumes.

If you do wash your pillows, ensure that the machine is large enough. Take care that the fabric case is robust and will not allow the filling to come loose, causing potentially serious damage to the machine. To prevent this, we recommend washing the pillow inside a pillowcase.

Always cover a pillow with a pillow case, and treat stains immediately. If the filling is feather or down, it is important to isolate the stain. Shake the feathers away from the affected area, then treat the stain according to what it is.
