Washing Pillows

Ok - so it's not just me....
Yellow pillows are gross and I didn't know if you could wash pillows or not but I read this blog and I will definitely try it!
Here's the recipe below for what to wash them with and a before and after pic from the blog. You should definitely read the whole blog post here:

Here's the recipe originally from Martha Stewart (who also suggests that you wash your pillow twice a year! whoa!)

  • HOT HOT HOT water
  • 1 cup of laundry detergent
  • 1 cup powdered dishwasher detergent
  • 1 cup bleach (you could try “A Natural Bleach Alternative if you are opposed to chlorine bleach)
  • 1/2 cup borax
Not only did the whole pillow-washing process turn out to be much easier than I anticipated, it worked like a CHARM!  
Just look at these “BEFORE” and “AFTER” pictures! It’s almost like my poor pillows were just WAITING for me to rescue them! ;-)
