- A user Glory says that she wouldn’t recommend the washing of pillows as it turns out differently.
- “I washed mine and now they look like flat door mats,” she said.
Most pillows sold are usually dazzling white but with time they change colors depending on how they are managed.
According to Facebook user Jono, there are different ingredients and steps to follow while cleaning the pillows.
She says that to clean the pillows, one needs a cup of laundry detergent, dishwasher powder, white vinegar, baking soda and a container of hot water.
“Mix the laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, white vinegar and baking soda in the hot water. Stir well to dissolve the ingredients then soak your pillow in the mixture for an hour, after soaking the pillow you wash in a regular machine style.”
“Regularly cleaning pillows is ideally recommended after every six months for optimal hygiene and health benefits,” she said.
This has caused mixed reactions with Facebook users having divergent views.

On the other side, Paterson has opposed the fact that pillows can be soaked and washed. She says that the products are too expensive to fit for a new pillow.
“The amount of products you would try to use along with the electricity and water it takes to wash and dry them, you can go buy new ones and be done,” she added.
Loria, another Facebook user, warned against using vinegar to wash a pillowcase. She said that some washing machines are sensitive and hence get destroyed.
“Don’t use vinegar because some machines will be damaged. I tried this trick and my washing machine and drier got damaged.”
Jono insisted on regular laundry of pillows to reduce the risk of affliction hence improving health benefits and sanitation.
