How to Naturally Whiten Pillows

How to Wash and Naturally Whiten Dingy Pillows

If your pillows aren't as white as they used to be, then give them a natural cleaning that leaves them looking like new. Pillows should be washed twice a year; taking a few extra minutes to transform them from dingy to glowing make pillows feel fresh. Don't forget: naturally whitening your pillows costs much less than picking up a new set.

What You'll Need:

  • 1 cup hydrogen peroxide
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • Laundry detergent
  • Laundry booster

Directions:

  1. Toss your dingy pillows in the washing machine, and set to soak. Washing two at a time balances your washing machine so they clean evenly. Now add the hydrogen peroxide and vinegar to the drum of the washing machine. Hydrogen peroxide is a natural whitener, and vinegar tackles deep-set stains.


  1. Once the soak cycle has run, wash the pillows with your regular liquid detergent along with laundry booster. A laundry booster enhances your detergent's abilities, seriously cleaning the pillows. You can use your favourite brands, or try making your own.
  2. Remove the pillows from the washing machine, and be amazed by their fresh whiteness. Toss the pillows in the dryer, and you're ready to make the bed.
