Caring for your scooms pillow | scooms bedding

How to wash pillows?

You can wash our goose down and feather pillows in the washing machine. Just follow the instructions on the care label. We recommend that you wash your pillow every 6 to 12 months.


To keep your scooms pillow in tip top condition:

  • Give your pillow a good shake each morning.
  • Machine wash at 40° every 6-12 months.
  • Use non-bio (enzyme free) detergent - about a third of the usual amount.
  • Dry thoroughly and tumble dry if necessary - make sure your pillow filling is completely dry before you place it in your pillow cover. Pillows do take longer to dry than a normal clothes load.
