When they find the perfect one, many people get quite attached to their pillow. The ugly truth is that over time, pillows tend to get yellowish color and it is really difficult to remove these stains.

Despite the fact that pillows are clean because you have just washed them into the washing machine, yellow color and strains make them look a bit gross.
Luckily, there is a method that will make your pillows look fresh and perfectly white. Try this method and even the old pillows will look like new again!
You will need:
1 cup laundry detergent
1 cup powdered dishwasher detergent
1 cup bleach (if you are opposed to chlorine bleach you can try “A Natural Bleach Alternative“)
½ cup borax
When it comes to cleaning the pillows properly and thoroughly, it is extremely important to use the hottest water possible.
Before washing it, check if your pillow is able to be machine washed. Remove the pillowcase and protector and then fill 1/3 of your washing machine with hot water. Next step is to add the ingredients to the washing machine and run it through a hot cycle. Make sure to space the pillows properly and thus prevent washing machine to get off balance.
When you finish this process, your pillows will be spotlessly white again!
