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.
