The Best Way to Clean Memory Foam Pillows

Memory foam pillows are a dream, but they can be difficult to clean. For one thing, they can't be washed in the washing machine or the dryer. They also shouldn't be scrubbed vigorously, and it is not a good idea to ever get them wet.

The best way to clean memory foam pillows depends upon the exact nature of the problem. Sometimes people might want to remove wet stains or dry stains, and other times they might just want to remove odors.

When it comes to removing odors, baking soda can do the trick. Adding some baking soda to the affected area and then letting it stand for around a day will often neutralize the odor. Then, people will just need to vacuum away the baking soda

Removing stains is a matter of trying to clean in a way that is as dry as possible. People need to mix mild soap and water in a bowl. They can then take a terry cloth towel and moisten it with the solution.

However, at this point, they should try to wring the moisture out of the solution as much as possible. They can then gently try to remove the stain from the pillow, almost by gently massaging it out of the pillow using the towel. 

It’s almost like the difference between drying off one’s face with a towel and drying off one’s face using a series of cotton balls.

When the stains are still wet, putting a towel against them can allow people to absorb the moisture effectively.

From there, the rest of the stain can be removed in the manner of a dry stain. If there is any lingering odor, then baking soda can be used to get rid of it

People might need to combine these processes on particularly difficult stains. Still, it can be done, and they can preserve their pillows.
