How to fluff a pillow

There are 2 ways that you can fluff your pillows. The first method is by hand. Lay the pillow down, and grab it on both the left and right sides of the pillow. Lift it, and quickly compress and decompress the pillow. Do this for about 30 seconds, then flip the pillow and grab it on the longer sides and repeat for another 30 seconds. After a few good punches, kneads, and smacks, your pillow should begin to Fluff up again. If not, don’t worry! there’s another method we can try.

The second method is to use your dryer. First, check the care tag on your pillow to see if it’s safe to put in the dryer. Most down pillows can’t be tumble-dried, and if they can, it’ll only be on low heat. If you use high heat with a down pillow, you run the risk of burning the stuffing inside.

To dry your pillow, first, follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Then, add an agitator like a tennis ball inside of a tube sock to help fluff up the pillow while it dries; alternatively, you could use bunched-up clothes or stuffed animals. The tennis ball pounds the pillow while it’s in the dryer, allowing the insides to break up and get airflow. Most of the time, you’re going to have to dry the pillow a few times to get good results.
