How to Clean Throw Pillows


Throw pillows add can add color to your living room as a comfortable accessory to your sofa. Throw pillows come in different shapes and sizes and sometimes come with a removable cover that can easily be tossed in the laundry. For those that don't, cleaning may be a little trickier. Here's a safe way to clean throw pillows that will keep them in good shape for years to come.

Things You'll Need

  • Vinegar
  • Needle and thread
  • Cut the seam along one side of the pillow. Be careful not to stray from the seam as this will make a hole when you sew it back up.

  • Remove the stuffing. If the stuffing is old or dirty, this may be a good time to replace it. You can purchase stuffing at any fabric store.

  • Hand wash the fabric in vinegar or an oxygen cleaner and rinse with plain warm water.

  • Turn the fabric inside out and allow it to air dry in the sun.

  • Place the stuffing back in the fabric once it is completely dry and sew back along the seam.

Tips & Warnings

  • For simple spot cleaning and stain removal, try Spot Shot, Febreeze or Oxyclean.
