How to update old pillows

We spend a third of our lives sleeping cuddling with a pillow. This thing is an integral part of a good night's rest. However, improper care can lead to the loss of shape and an unpleasant odor. Moreover, pillows become a breeding ground for mites and harmful microorganisms.

If you don't want to buy new pillows often, you can give "new life" to old ones. OBOZREVATEL figured out how to make used pillows plump.

It takes a little patience and literally 5 minutes. A simple life hack will help restore softness and fluffiness to pillows.

Step 1: Experts advise starting by cutting open the factory pillowcase, but not completely - just ten centimeters is enough to put your hand through.

Step 2: Next, remove the filling and place it in a large container. A massive bowl or wide basin will do.

Step 3: Use two massage combs to fluff the litter. To do this, squeeze it between the two combs. It is better to take small pieces so that they do not cling to the teeth.

Step 4: Return the fluffed filling to the pillowcase, sew it up, and fluff the pillow. The factory pillowcase should also be washed.

By the way, in the summer, housewives often perform an annual ritual: they take all the pillows and bedspreads out to "dry" in the sun. This is a really good habit because the sun's rays kill bacteria, destroy dust mites, and eliminate dampness, mold, and unpleasant odors. All you need to do is take the pillows out into the fresh air for at least an hour and expose all sides to the rays. Read the article to find out what other things get cleaner in the sun.

Earlier, OBOZREVATEL told you how many times a year it is recommended to wash pillows and what life hacks can be used for different fillers.
