Washing Yellowed Pillows

It’s likely I’m oversharing, but I can’t stand how yellowed our bed pillows get over time. Normally, I just buy new pillows when they get super-gross. Usually, it’s my husband’s pillow that takes the most abuse, since he could live in the Arctic and still sweat, while I’m still using blankets and comforters despite the sweltering summer temps.

But I came across this easy primer on how to clean pillows and get them looking white again, on One Good Thing By Jillee — she washed two pillows at a time, and the only ingredients used were hot water, 1 cup of laundry detergent, 1 cup of powdered dishwasher detergent (!), 1 cup bleach, and 1/2 cup borax.

With some extra-hot water and a few simple ingredients, her pillows came out amazingly white — check out the pictures. I’m irrationally excited to try it this weekend.
