How do you clean feather pillows?
By Edward54 from Altoona PA
They sell a special down cleaner at REI in Seattle. It's made for cleaning high-end sleeping bags. You clean the sleeping bags in your bath tub. I had an old boyfriend who did this with great success. You don't want a harsh cleanerand never dry clean! If all else fails, use baby shampoo in the tub.

You could try hanging them outside on a good sunny day, all day long, then running through the dryer on "low" with a tennis ball or one of those laundry balls sold at stores. Just run for about 10 minutes, the refluff the feathers. If it is actually dirty, I would use an upholstery cleaner to surface clean the fabric, then hang outside. The feathers could end up with a permanent stink if you try to wash them at home. (04/26/2009)
