I learned something new this morning.
In my spring cleaning frenzy, I tried to launder the down pillows from my bed. I checked the internet to see if there was some reason I shouldn’t put them in water (even though I couldn’t imagine one, since down gets wet when it’s on the goose or the duck.)
The instructions said to launder the pillows in a front-loading machine. Uh … I don’t have a front loader. But really, what difference could it make, right?
It does. Because, as I found out – down pillows float. I suppose that’s one of the reasons duckies and geese don’t drown.
Any suggestions for cleaning my pillows now that they’re saturated – and still dirty?
