How to Machine Wash on Delicate Cycle
Wash the pillow cover, or the whole pillow, on a gentle-wash cycle in warm water with a very mild detergent. Detergent for delicate fabrics or baby clothes is usually suitable.
How Hang to Dry
Remove the pillow or pillow cover as soon as the washing machine has ended the cycle and has shut off. Hang the pillow or cover up to dry in a well-ventilated area. If the care label specifies that the item is dryer-safe, place the pillow or pillow cover in the dryer and tumble dry on low heat.
How Fluff to Reshape
Fluff the pillow once it is dry in order to maintain its form. Don’t use the pillow until it is completely dry. Damp pillows will attract dirt more easily.
