Step 2

Set the machine to wash on a regular cycle and add ingredients to the water. Let your washer start to fill with water, and start by adding 1 cup of distilled white vinegar to help disinfect your pillows. Then add 10 drops of lemon essential oil which will help kill any bacteria, while also helping to whiten the pillows. Finally, add your regular laundry detergent and wait for the washer to fill all the way up with water.

Step 3

Add your pillows to the washing machine. Push them all the way into the water so they are fully submerged. Let the washing machine do its thing.

Warning

Only wash two pillows at a time so they can get really clean without overcrowding your washing machine.

Step 4

Once your washing machine has finished its cycle, place your pillows in the dryer and allow them to dry on the low heat setting until they are fully dry and fluffy. The dryer will help reshape your pillows and the heat helps to kill any remaining dust mites.
