Over time, pillows collect oil, dust, dandruff, hair strands etc. It is therefore important to clean your pillows at regular intervals. You wouldn’t get a good night’s sleep on a stinky pillow, after all. It is also helpful in maintaining the health of your skin and hair.
Please note that we are not talking about pillow covers. Simply washing and changing the pillow covers is not enough. Wondering how to clean your pillows? Well, you can follow the steps given below.
Clean pillows are important for the health of your skin and hair. You may not know this but unclean pillows are one of the leading causes of pimples. Grease and dirt can build up on the
fabric of your pillowcases over time. When you move around in sleep, it creates fiction and can cause acne and breakouts. The skin treatments won’t work until you address the real cause. Sometimes, cleaning and washing the pillow may not be enough. Like all the other items in your household, your pillow too needs to be replaced. It isn’t an item that’s meant to last forever. Consider changing your pillow when it doesn’t bounce back from being folded into half.
Washing your pillow cases is as important as keeping them neat and clean. It’s best to wash your pillowcases once in 15-20 days.
