How to make old pillows plump: a clever upgrade trick
We spend a third of our lives sleeping, in fact - cuddling with our pillow. This item is an essential part of a night's rest. However, improper care can lead to loss of shape and an unpleasant odor. Moreover, pillows become a breeding ground for mites and harmful microorganisms.
If you do not want to buy pillows often, you can give "new life" to the old ones. OBOZREVATEL figured out how to make used pillows plump.
You will need a little patience and literally 5 minutes of time. A simple little tiphack will help to return the cushions softness and plumpness.
Step 1. Experts advise to start by ripping open the factory pillowcase, but not completely - literally ten centimeters will be enough to stick your hand through.
Step 2 Next, you should take out the filler and place it in a large container. A large bowl or a wide basin will do.
Step 3: Using two massage combs, you need to fluff up the filler. To do this, wedge it between the two combs. It is better to take small pieces, so that they do not cling to the teeth.
Step 4: Put the fluffed filling back into the pillowcase, sew it up and fluff the pillow. The factory pillowcase should also be washed.
By the way, in summer hostesses often perform an annual ritual: take all cushions and bedspreads out to "dry" in the sun. This is a really useful habit, because sunlight kills bacteria, kills dust mites, eliminates dampness, mold and unpleasant odors. You just need to take your pillows out into the fresh air for at least an hour and expose all sides to the rays. What other things become cleaner in the sun - read in the material.
