Memory foam pillows are used by many people, providing you with a soft pillow option that fits the form of your head as you sleep. The foam is a different material than traditional pillows, making it important to understand that these pillows require a different wash routine. Throwing the memory foam in the washing machine will often destroy the pillow. Instead, hand wash the pillow as needed.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Vacuum over the pillows with your vacuum's hose attachment as needed to remove loose dust.

  2. 2

    Wipe away stickier build-up with a damp cleaning rag and allow the pillow to air dry.

  3. 3

    Combine 2 cups of warm water with 3 tbsp of washing powder. Swish the water with your fingers to dissolve the soap.

  4. 4

    Dip a cleaning rag into the soapy water mixture, wring out the rag and wipe it gently over the pillow. Don't use too much moisture, as you don't want to over-saturate the memory foam. Follow up with a clean, damp rag to remove any leftover soap residue, and let the pillow air dry.

  5. 5

    Disinfect the pillow with a disinfectant spray, or fill a spray bottle with white vinegar and mist over the pillow. Allow it to air dry.
