Can throw pillows be washed?

Decorative pillows add comfort and style to a room, but there’s more to know about them than meets the eye. Depending on the materials used, some decorative pillows can be machine-washed while others require hand-washing or dry-cleaning – all to prevent damage. For example, pillows made from delicate fabrics like silk or wool, or those with down feathers typically need special care and should be dry cleaned.
