Seeing that we spend one-third of our life in bed, it means that we tend to spend a lot of time with our heads pressed to our pillows and one can’t begin to imagine how dirty they can get. It is imperative that you know to properly clean your pillows so you can’t get rid of dirt when they become dirty.

You need to understand how to take proper care of your memory foam pillow so you wouldn’t cause damages it to while cleaning. This article will help you know just how you should care for your memory foam pillow.

Before we dive in, here are a few rules to know about caring for memory foam pillows: you shouldn’t machine wash your memory foam pillow as this can damage your pillow’s makeup structure. You shouldn’t use a dryer on your memory pillow, this can cause heat damage. You should not scrub your pillow too roughly. With those out of the way, let’s go straight to how you should clean your memory foam pillows.


It is typically recommended that you wash your memory foam pillow at least once every two months. However, our Memory Foam Pillows come with easy-to-wash detachable covers that you can throw in the machine to clean at least weekly.

To wash your pillow, fill a large bowl/tub/sink with lukewarm water then add in a small amount of mild detergent. Avoid using harsh cleaning products as they can lead to chemical buildup and damage your pillow. Dunk in your pillow and gently squeeze to lather the soap then squeeze repeatedly to get rid of dirt. Keep doing this until your water is clear enough to indicate that your pillow is clean. Air dry your pillow outside or in a properly ventilated space.

  • Read the instruction label that comes with your pillow.
  • Invest in pillow protectors to help minimize a buildup of dust and dirt on your pillows.
  • Vacuum your pillow’s surface at least once a week. This would help to remove hair, dead skin cells, and other foreign particles from the surface.
  • Change your pillowcases at least once every week. Not only will this help your pillows but it would also help you enjoy healthier sleep.
  • Clean spills immediately after they happen. This can be done with soapy water and a soft washcloth/sponge. Blot out the spill until there is no stain then tap the pillow with a dry towel until almost dry then leave to air dry outside.
  • For tough stains, you can add baking soda to your cleaning as this would help remove tough stains easier and better than detergent.
  • You can deodorize your pillow with baking soda and some essential oils (based on preference). Remove the pillow from its cover then sprinkle the baking soda all over it. Leave the pillow in the sun for about 2 to 3 hours then vacuum to remove the baking soda.
  • Memory Foam pillow cleaning is best done on a warm and sunny day so the drying process can be fast and thorough. You want to make sure that your pillow dries completely so there is no buildup of mold and mildew.


You can invest in a quality pillow but if you don’t appropriately care for it, you wouldn’t enjoy the quality it is designed to give you. Understanding your pillow type and how best to care for it is an important step in ensuring you get the most out of your pillows.

Buy the wrong pillows and you could be throwing away your chance to enjoy nights of good sleep. Sleep is an extremely vital part of our lives and we need it to recuperate daily so not getting enough of it can be worrying.

It is important to note that like with other bedding pieces, pillows play a good role in helping you enjoy good sleep, as well as enjoy good health. For a lot of people who experience neck or headaches every morning despite sleeping through the night, their pillows might be the main reason why that is happening.

So what should you consider when shopping for a pillow? What factors should you think about to ensure you buy the perfect pillow for you? Read on to find out.

You might already have a sleep pillow you use and you might be skeptical about getting a new one probably because you think it has a long lifespan or because you haven’t used it for too long. It is however important to note that your pillows could need change long before their lifespan is due if they don’t make you comfortable.

How do you know that it’s time for a change? Signs can typically include having constant headaches, your pillow looks discoloured and covered in stains, your pillow has gotten lumpy and uneven, you get allergies after each use, you have to adjust the pillow a couple of times during the night, or you now experience constant neck and head pains after use.

If you experience one or more of these signs regularly then that might be your pillow’s way of warning you that it’s time for a change.


Do you like firm pillows? Or do you prefer ‘soft as cloud’ pillows? You should consider what you prefer when pillow shopping. However, you should note that sometimes, your preference might not be the best choice for you so you should be ready to compromise for the sake of your comfort and health.

If you are a lover of firm pillows, you can consider going for a memory foam pillow. It is a firm pillow that still has flexibility that guarantees you comfort. If you will rather go for a soft pillow, you can consider a goose feather pillow or a bounce-back pillow. You should also note what you are allergic to so that you don’t go for a feather pillow if you are allergic to goose feathers.


Your pillow and mattress should work hand-in-hand to help you enjoy quality sleep. While deciding on what pillow to buy, consider how your mattress feels. If you use a soft mattress, you should consider going for a thinner pillow so your pillow doesn’t lift your head too far from your mattress as a soft mattress would mean your body sinks in easily. With a firmer mattress, opt for a fuller pillow.


Ask around to know which pillows are recommended. Know your medical history and work with that in mind. Understand the different types of pillow fillings, their properties, and how you react to them. Check to see if you can test out the pillow in-store before making a purchase. Carry out research to properly understand pillows before going out to buy.


Taking your time to completely understand what you want to go shopping for will help to ensure that you buy the right pillow and don’t end up with a pillow that aggravates your inability to achieve good sleep. Your pillow could be your best sleep buddy if you work on getting the right one for you.
