Decorative pillows enhance the aesthetics of your room and match your home décor with ease. The Domvitus collection offers an extensive range of colours, patterns, and textures that blend effortlessly with your curtains, walls, and upholstery. Over time, sofa pillows may accumulate dirt and require proper cleaning. While restoring its appearance, cleaning may affect its underlying fabric, which may lead to effects such as fading fabric damage. This guide provides steps on how to properly care for and clean throw pillow covers.

Throw Pillow Covers

First Step in Cleaning: Always Check the Label

Pay Attention to the Label: The first step in throw pillow cover care is to always refer to the cleaning instructions on the label. These instructions may include the appropriate water temperature and whether the pillow cover should be hand-washed, machine-washed, or dry-cleaned. Certain materials like cotton, fibre, and linen are prone to shrinking in the wash. To prevent dehydration during the cleaning process, we generally employ the use of cold water, limit agitation, and opt for air drying when handling the material.

Machine Washing: Best Practices for Cotton, Linen, and Silk Covers

Machine Wash: Certain fabrics, such as cotton, linen, and silk, are compatible with machine washing. If the item is soaked in water, the colour may bleed out. If you have concerns about colourfastness, try using a cold wash to assess its effectiveness. If the colour bleeds during washing, take appropriate maintenance measures, such as turning the item face out to minimize friction and using a mild detergent, among others.

Hand Washing: The Safest Method for Your Delicate Throw Pillows

Hand Washing: Hand washing is one of the gentlest methods to clean a throw pillow without causing damage. By doing so, you can wash different parts of the throw pillow using varying levels of strength and then observe the results. Use a mild detergent and cold water. Gently squeeze the fabric to remove the dirt, then rinse the detergent using multiple water changes. Once cleaned, roll up the pillow cover in a towel and gently press the towel to remove excess water. You may need to repeat this step a few times to get rid of all the water.

The Ideal Drying Technique for Your Throw Pillow Covers

Drying: Not all throw pillow covers are suitable for tumble dryer drying. The gentlest and most efficient method is to air dry, which is protective. After washing the throw pillow covers, keep them in a warm place out of direct sunlight to prevent bleaching caused by the sun.
