When did you last wash your pillows? You can be sure that a fair proportion of a pillow’s weight is made up of skin scales, dandruff, sweat, saliva and goodness knows what else!
While the sun’s shining, get those pillows (two at a time) in the washing machine (check the care label first) and out on the line.
Feather-filled pillows need to dry quickly, otherwise if they hang about damp for a few days the feathers will develop mould and your good work will be undone. If the rain’s back on, stick in the tumble dryer with a few white tennis balls to stop the filling clumping.
And always better to cover them with pillow protectors to protect from soiling. You’ll sleep a lot sounder now…
