Regular laundry detergent
Lavender essential oil
Before you start, ensure your pillows are machine-washable by checking their labels. Pour your chosen detergent in the designated drawer, followed by half a cup of baking soda and a few lavender oil drops directly into the drum. Add two pillows for balance and run your wash.
To prolong your pillows’ freshness, adopt good daily habits. Each morning, remove the pillowcases, open up the windows, and let sunlight bathe your pillows. This practice airs out your room and deters excess moisture and mold growth. And if your pillows look a bit drab? A steam cleaner can spruce them up. For a brighter touch, pre-soak them in a mix of lemon juice, white vinegar, or hydrogen peroxide before a machine wash.
