I've been an online writer for over seven years. My articles often focus on pillow brands, reviewing comfort and affordability.

Latex pillows are easily stained. Thus, it is highly recommended to cover them with pillow cases (preferably ones with zippers) to protect them from dust and body oil. These pillows are hypoallergenic and highly resistant to mildew and dust mites. Labels with care and maintenance guides are attached to every latex pillow that you purchase. When washing a latex pillow, it is best to follow the instructions below.

How to Wash Your Latex Pillow

Bear in mind that latex pillows should not be washed using washing machines and dryers. It is important to note never to soak these pillows in water nor expose it to direct sunlight. This type of pillows should only be hand washed and never wring, stretch, twist or scrunch them. Here are steps to follow:

  1. Remove pillow case (may be hand-washed or machine-washed)
  2. Fill container or sink with warm water
  3. Add mild detergent
  4. Soak a clean towel in the mixture and wring dry
  5. Blot the pillow with the cloth, paying more attention on stains
  6. After blotting, place fresh towels on both sides of the pillow and press excess moisture
  7. Air dry flat and away from direct sunlight
  8. Cover your latex pillow with clean pillow case.

Now your pillows are fresh and ready to use!
