We often get asked - can you wash down pillows? Yes, 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.
Give your pillow a good shake each morning to plump up the down and feather.
Don't use a tight pillowcase or pillow protector as this will flatten the down filling. And make sure your pillowcase is made of a breathable material like cotton or linen to allow the down to breathe.
Machine wash at 40° every 6-12 months using non-bio (enzyme free) detergent, a third of the usual amount for a washing load.
Dry thoroughly, preferably in a tumble dryer - 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.
Shake the pillow several times during the drying process so that the down filling doesn't stick together and clump.
Dryer balls like scooms Wool Tumble Dryer Balls or even clean tennis balls will help to keep the down fluffy as it dries.
