One of the most common questions about the microbead pillows is whether or not they can be washed. The answer is YES they can! Though there are other brands of microbead pillows out there that are not washable so you may need to make sure to check the manufacturer's guidelines. Before washing any microbead pillow, you should always check the Care Instruction Label! Majority of the high quality microbead pillows we carry allow for easy and convenient washing either in traditional washing machines or simply by hand with appropriate precautions.
When washing your microbead pillows in the washing machine, a front loading washer is recommended, though if washing in a top load washer, simply ensure the microbead pillow is washed with a full load of like colors. To prevent any accidental tears in the fabric or sewing, you should always wash the microbead pillows inside a tied up pillow case. It is also recommended to use some heavy towels in the wash as well so the load is well-balanced to minimize wear and tear on the pillow. Only use the gentle cycle setting with luke warm water with a mild detergent.
DO NOT USE CHLORINE BLEACH! Chemicals of any kind will damage your microbead pillow.
When drying a microbead pillow, you may use air drying or traditional machine drying. If using a machine dryer simply make sure to use the lowest temperature setting to about 95% dry then line or hang dry for a short time. Overheating will damage the pillow!
