Things You’ll Need:
Mild liquid detergent
Bowl (if hand-washing)
Old rags (if hand-washing)
Examine the label or tag on the travel pillow to see if the pillow can also be machine-dried.
Put the pillow in the washing machine with a mild detergent, and run it through a washing cycle with cold water. It can be safely washed with other articles that are washable in cold water.
Transfer the pillow from the washing machine to the clothes dryer, and dry it using either a low heat or an air setting. If the pillow is not dryer-safe, pin it to a clothesline and dry it in the open air.
Fill a bowl with water, wet a rag in the bowl and then put a little detergent on the end of the rag.
Dab the soapy end of the rag against the pillow to clean it. Reapply soap and water to the rag as necessary.
Rinse by using a second wet rag with no detergent on it, using the same dabbing procedure as in Step 2.
Pin to a clothesline or set in a warm, dry place and dry the pillow in the open air.
