How do I clean a Boppy Pillow?

My son wasted milk on it and I am trying to figure out if there is any kind of way to salvage it. The milk soaked through it.

  • I threw mine in the washer on gentle, and then in the dryer on gentle as well. It washed up fine.

  • I would wash it just like any other pillow. Put it in a pillowcase and throw in the wash. Dry on air fluff with a couple of tennis balls in the dryer.

  • You could sponge it off with warm soapy water and if you happen to live somewhere where the sun is shining, put it out in the sun to allow it to thoroughly dry out. The soured milk smell should go away once it is completely dry. And the fresh air will help. If you don't have sunshine, then just let it air dry in the house. You could also do the same thing with Febreeze if you have that.
