Therefore, it's essential to know how to clean and maintain your down pillow to ensure that it remains soft, fluffy, and fresh.

Using a pillow protector can help to extend the lifespan of your down pillow. It protects it from sweat, oils, and other debris that can penetrate through the pillowcase. Make sure to choose a breathable, hypoallergenic, and easy-to-wash protector that fits your pillow snugly.

Step 3: Wash Your Down Pillow

Washing your down pillow can help to remove dead skin, oils, and bacteria that accumulate over time. However, it's essential to do it correctly to avoid damaging the filling. Follow our step-by-step instructions on how to wash your down pillow, including choosing the right cleaning agents, water temperature, and drying techniques.

Drying your down pillow is the most crucial step in maintaining its fluffiness and shape. We'll guide you through various drying techniques, including air-drying, low-heat drier, and adding a couple of tennis balls to the drying cycle.

Step 5: Store Your Down Pillow Correctly

Storing your down pillow correctly when not in use can extend its life and keep it fluffy. Avoid storing it in plastic bags, as it can trap moisture and cause mildew. Instead, store it in a breathable bag or place it on a shelf or hanging hook.


Caring for a down pillow requires some effort, but it's worth it to ensure a good night's rest and prolong the life of your pillow. By following our comprehensive guide, you'll learn how to keep your down pillow clean, fresh, and fluffy, ensuring optimal comfort for years to come.
