If you have bought a pillow made of bamboo fibres, it means that you know how great it is for your health to lay your head on it at night, such a pillow not harboring allergens, bacteria, and dust mites due to the materials that go into its manufacturing. But this doesn’t mean that the bamboo pillow doesn’t have to be washed. On the contrary, if you don’t make sure to wash it on a regular basis, the pillow will get dirty, and that’s something that you have to avoid if you care about the health of your skin and your respiratory system. To find out how to properly wash a bamboo pillow, read the following lines.
The top of the line models on the market come with bamboo covers that can be removed in order to be washed. All that you have to do is to take the cover off, and put it in the washing machine. Set the machine on a gentle cycle, and once the cycle is over, either air dry the cover or put it in the dryer. Of course, you can do this procedure manually as well, but it’s not necessary because the gentle cycle on the washing machine will do a better job without harming the fabric. Also, make sure that you put a small amount of detergent in the machine when you wash it.

When it’s time to wash it, simply soak it in water that doesn’t have detergent or anything else in it. After you have soaked the pillow, air dry it. If you plan on cleaning the bamboo pillow regularly, it’s better to simply take a damp cloth, wipe its surface, and let it air dry for 10-15 minutes. By cleaning it like this regularly, there won’t be a need for you to soak it and potentially ruin its texture by doing so.
After you have washed the shredded memory foam pillow, it’s time to dry it. What you mustn’t do is to put it in the dryer, no matter how gentle you think the drying cycle will be because it will destroy the foam. Instead, air dry the pillow for the foam to maintain its texture and properties, ensuring that it will be good for use for a long time.
