Due to allergies, I wash my pillows often. I don't buy nice pillows for this reason. I'm not so sure eider down would hold up to frequent laundering, anyway.

The pillows I buy are cheap, but serve their purpose reasonably well. I do find that the poly/Dacron filling tends to lose its shape after a while. And after laundering they're just a misshapen ball I do battle with half the night.

Needle and cord to the rescue; with a large needle and a strong thread or cord, I put a few tufts in the pillows. This causes them to keep their shape before and after laundering. Now, I rest better. Simple. Sweet.

Can I use white tennis sneakers with leather tops in the dryier to dry pillows?

No. Put tennis balls one at time in a long clean sock and tie it. Now use several Bounce softner sheets.


I do this for about ten minutes and then lay outside in full sun when there is no pollen. Be sure to turn the pillows. Throw them out after two years for sure.
