In order to prevent potential health problems and keep them in the best possible shape, experts recommend cleaning your pillows every month.
Pillows are one of those items that need special treatment in order to be in tip-top shape due to their constant use. Although many people don’t think so, they do absorb a big amount of sweat and dirt and are the perfect environment for the spread of mites and bacteria.
In order to protect the pillow, people put in a protective case which can also get dirty and smell unpleasant. Although the stains may be a bit difficult to clean, we’ll show you a few simple tricks which will disinfect your pillows and cushions and make them pearly white again!
BAKING SODA AND VINEGAR
Mix a bit of baking soda and vinegar and soak your pillows and pillow cases in to remove all the dirt from them and disinfect them as well. Both ingredients are powerful whitening and antibacterial agents which can easily cut through dirt and sweat stains. Here’s how to prepare the mixture:
- 80 gr. of baking soda
- 125 ml. of white vinegar
Add the mixture in your washing machine before pre-washing the pillows and cases and complete a normal wash cycle. Leave them to dry in the sun afterwards and the stains should be completely gone.
HOT WATER AND LEMON JUICE
