Here are the steps to washing gel and memory foam pillows:
- Wash the removable covers in the washer (foam pillows can’t be machine washed)
- Remove dust by gently vacuuming the pillows with an upholstery nozzle and low pressure.
- Put the pillows in the dryer on a heat-free cycle for about 20 minutes.
Can you wash gel memory foam pillows?
Solid memory foam pillows can be easily cleaned by simply running warm water over them until it comes out clear. Do not put a solid memory foam pillow in the washing machine. The strong agitation of machine washing will break up the padding inside the pillow and weaken it. Do not use a dryer on a foam pillow.
Can you wash a cool gel pillow?
Memory foam cannot be placed inside the washer, so you need to clean it by hand. You can keep it clean for a longer time by placing the right pillowcase over the cooling gel pillow. Use gentle cleaning agents that will not change the overall feel and density of the pillow.
Can you put pillows in the washer?
Put your pillows in the washing machine.
Don’t worry – it is perfectly safe to wash pillows (even down pillows) in the washing machine. Try to wash at least two at once so that the washer is balanced and the pillows don’t get thrown around so much.
How do you get the smell out of gel pillows?
Sprinkle baking soda
It works for an odorous memory foam pillow, topper, or mattress too. Simply sprinkle a bit directly onto your memory foam and let stand for a day or two. Then, give it a shake and vacuum off the remaining fine powder with the upholstery brush attachment. This should help minimize the smell.
