Caring for pillows can be challenging. They lose their shape quickly, so you have to fluff them up constantly to find a comfortable sleeping position. Over time, pillows become flat and shapeless, which sometimes leads to insomnia or even headaches in the morning.

Experts offer a rather unusual but effective solution. House Digest has revealed how to make pillows fluff again.

Simple hack

End your cycle of pillow problems with a radical solution: tennis balls. These unpretentious sports accessories can be used in the washing process.

When you put the tennis balls in the dryer with your pillows, they evenly distribute the down in the filling. As the washer or dryer rotates, the balls bounce around a small area, crashing into the pillows and preventing them from shrinking too much. This not only restores height to the pillows but also improves airflow, keeping them fresh and fluff.

How to make pillows fluff

The tennis ball method works best for fillings made from down or its alternatives.

You need to wash the pillows, taking into account the material recommendations. Next, you should take two clean tennis balls, preferably without marks or damage. To prevent dye transfer, put the tennis balls in socks.

Load the cushions and tennis balls into the dryer. Make sure your dryer has enough room for the pillows to move freely. Moving the balls around also improves airflow inside the pillows, preventing them from becoming musty.

Set the dryer temperature to medium to high. After the cycle is complete, remove the pillows from the dryer and gently fluff them by hand to redistribute the filling. You will immediately notice the difference as the pillows will become looser and softer.
