How to Dry a Memory-Foam Pillow

Save

A memory-foam pillow offers a sleek alternative to a traditional stuffed pillow. Contouring around you, it adjusts to your head, making the pillow both comfortable and supportive. If your memory-foam pillow gets wet, its dense material can take a long time to dry on its own. For the sake of not sleeping on a damp pillow tonight, help the drying process along.

  • Remove the pillowcase from the memory-foam pillow and set it aside to be washed and dried.

  • Wring out the pillow with your hands over the sink or outside. Squeeze out as much moisture as possible.

  • Set the memory-foam pillow outside in the sunlight. The sun will heat the pillow and dry it out. Set the pillow in a dry, well-ventilated area if the day is overcast.

  • Leave the pillow in the sunlight or dry, well-ventilated area for at least four hours.

  • Check the memory-foam pillow before using it. Press the foam between your hands to feel for moisture. If moisture remains, repeat steps 2 and 3 until it does not.

Tips & Warnings

  • Baking soda can help your pillow dry and will take any odors with it. Sprinkle it over the pillow and leave it for several hours before brushing it off.
  • Do not put your memory-foam pillow in the dryer. Read the manufacturer's instructions for washing and drying exceptions.
