Wash bed pillows in a laundromat front loader washer. Because of their size, they need a lot of room to tumble.

When you put them in the dryer, toss in a couple of tennis balls. It is noisy and annoying, but it fluffs up the pillows a mile high. Also works with comforters and parkas.

Another thing you may want to do is to run long stitches from 1 side to the other to make sure that the filling doesn't shift or bunch, the stitches should be about 4 in. apart in a grid pattern and pull them fairly tight.

Add one cup of white vinegar and 1/2 cup baking soda for extra deep cleaning.

Ah, yes, be sure to check for sturdy seams....it is a lot of fun picking that batting out of the washer if they come loose! I just put two pillows in a load and do a normal wash. They come out very nice.

I read that you should not add baking soda and vinegar together in the wash. They somehow cancel each other out, making them useless for getting anything clean. It was suggested that you add baking soda to the wash and then add vinegar to the rinse for more efficient cleaning.

I usually use rubber bands to hold the corners of pillows and comforters instead of sewing. I have thrown in brand new flipflops when I couldn't find new tennis balls. They work fine.
