How Often Do You Wash Your Pillows?

Bed pillows, that is?

They say you should wash them twice a year. This is the first time I have washed mine and I have had them for a little less than a year.

My son peed on my bed last night and managed to get pee on my pillows..all 4 of them. Smh lol.

So in the wash they go..and yes I had to look up online how to do it haha. The manufacterer's instructions did not say to rinse twice but a website I went to said to rinse them twice to get all the soap out so that is what I am doing.

Unfortunately I can't do feather pillows. After a while my face breaks out in a rash from them. Kinda weird, I can have a down coat and be fine, just not pillows.

Never. They get all lumpy and terrible. I just buy the cheap-o $3 pillows and replace them, as needed.

I don't. My pillows get all lumpy and weird when I try. My son is asthmatic and I just replace them 2-3 times per year.

I wash mine every time I wash sheets. I put them in the dryer & they turn out fine.
