Can You Wash a Bamboo Pillow?

Bamboo pillows are becoming increasingly popular due to their hypoallergenic and eco-friendly properties. However, many people are unsure about how to clean and maintain their bamboo pillows. In this article, we will answer common questions related to washing bamboo pillows and provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to do it.

What is a Bamboo Pillow?

A bamboo pillow is made from shredded memory foam and encased in a cover made of bamboo-derived fibers. These pillows offer several benefits such as regulating temperature and reducing allergens. However, over time, these pillows can accumulate dead skin cells, oils, and sweat, which can cause them to smell and become discolored.

How to Wash a Bamboo Pillow?

Before you begin washing your bamboo pillow, check the care label for any specific instructions. Most bamboo pillows can be washed in the washing machine, but some may require hand-washing or dry cleaning. Here are the general steps to follow when washing a bamboo pillow:

Step 1: Remove the cover

Remove the bamboo cover from the pillow and set it aside. If the cover has a zipper, unzip it and remove the foam filling.

Step 2: Pre-treat stains

If there are any visible stains on the pillow, pre-treat them with a stain remover before washing.

Step 3: Wash the pillow

Place the pillow in the washing machine with a mild detergent on a gentle cycle. Use cold water to prevent the foam from deteriorating. Additionally, avoid using fabric softeners or bleach since they can damage the foam.

Step 4: Rinse and dry

After the washing cycle is complete, rinse the pillow thoroughly to remove all the soap residue. Squeeze excess water out of the pillow and place it in the dryer on low heat until it is completely dry.
