It is important to ensure pillows are dried thoroughly to prevent mold and mildew growth. While most pillows can go into the dryer, foam pillows must be air-dried to avoid hazards.
To dry your pillows effectively, give them a quick fluff after removing them from the washing machine. This helps to evenly distribute their contents for better drying results.
Place the pillows into the dryer with either wool dryer balls or tennis balls, which can speed up the drying process and prevent the feathers, down, or polyester from clumping.
Use low or medium heat settings and choose either tumble dry or gentle cycles. Check and fluff the pillows every 20-30 minutes to ensure even drying and to avoid overheating.
