Do what grandma did with the feather pillows! Spot clean when necessary, and lay out in direct sunlight when it needs refreshing. An hour on each side, in the UV Rays of the sun sanitize and deodorize your pillow. Having said that, the bamboo has such amazing anti-bacterial properties, that you’d be hard pressed to find much ‘person’ scent coming from your pillows at all. As for your Bamboo Pillow Slips (if you choose to purchase our Bamboo slips for your Bamboo-Buckwheat pillows), if you find you have a person in the family with a glandular issue, there may still be sweat of some sort on your pillow slip. Treat with dish-detergent before regular laundering and drying. They iron like a dream, too.
