The first answer to the questions of how to clean memory foam pillows is â€śdryly.â€ť Never, ever wash a memory foam pillow. That is because memory foam pillows washing usually leads to some sort of bacteria build up inside the pillow that will lead to even more problems. Now that you understand this, you can read on for information about memory foam pillows and care.
How To Clean Memory Foam Pillows
Since you cannot wash a memory foam pillow, it follows that your pillowâ€™s ultimate enemy is anything wet. Therefore, soak up any wet stains as soon as possible before it soaks in. If possible, use a wet dry vac to complete the job. Then apply a little hydrogen peroxide to the source of the stain, allowing it to soak in about as much as you suspect the problem liquid has. This will, hopefully, prevent bacteria from building up in the pillow. After the peroxide has had a few minutes to work, blot it out or remove it with the vac. Then dry the pillow with a blow dryer set on low heat or air only. Try to get it dry as soon as possible.
I must warn you that even with the above mentioned method memory foam pillows washing is still tricky and the pillow may still not be usable. Thatâ€™s why, when it come to memory foam pillows care, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. When you spend the money to purchase a memory foam pillow, go ahead and buy a waterproof cover for it. There are some very high quality covers that do not wrinkle or crackle when you lay on them. These are usually made of nylon and cost a bit more but should, with proper care, last the life of your pillow.Print This Article
