Care of Hollowfibre Pillows
Taking care of your hollowfibre pillows is essential to ensure their longevity, comfort, and hygiene. Here are some guidelines to help you care for your hollowfibre pillows:
- Regular Fluffing: Fluff your pillows regularly to maintain their shape and prevent the filling from becoming lumpy. Gently knead and shake the pillows to distribute the filling evenly.
- Pillow Protectors: Always use pillow protectors or pillowcases to keep your pillows clean and protect them from stains, oils, and dirt. Wash or change the pillowcases regularly.
- Washing Instructions: Check the care label on your hollowfibre pillows for specific washing instructions. Many hollowfibre pillows are machine washable, but it’s important to follow the recommended temperature and cycle settings. Use a mild detergent and avoid using bleach.
- Machine Washing: If your pillows are machine washable, place two pillows in the washing machine to help balance the load. Use a gentle cycle with cold or warm water. Avoid using too much detergent as it can leave residues that might affect the fluffiness of the pillows. Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap.
- Drying: After washing, it’s important to dry your pillows thoroughly to prevent mold and mildew growth. Use a low heat setting in your dryer or hang them outside in the sun to air dry. Adding a few clean tennis balls or dryer balls to the dryer can help fluff the pillows and redistribute the filling.
- Avoid Over-Drying: Over-drying can damage the fibres and reduce the lifespan of your pillows. Remove them from the dryer as soon as they’re dry to the touch.
- No Ironing or Dry Cleaning: Hollowfibre pillows should not be ironed or dry cleaned, as excessive heat can damage the fibres and affect the pillow’s loft.
- Regular Replacement: Even with proper care, pillows tend to lose their support and comfort over time. Consider replacing your hollowfibre pillows every 1-2 years, depending on usage and how well you’ve maintained them.
- Avoid Moisture: Moisture can lead to mould and mildew growth. Keep your pillows in a dry and well-ventilated area.
- Avoid Sun Exposure: Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause the pillow fabric to fade and weaken. Avoid leaving your pillows in the sun for extended periods.
- Shake and Pat: Periodically, give your pillows a good shake to redistribute the filling and pat them gently to help maintain their shape.
Remember that specific care instructions might vary depending on the brand and type of hollowfibre pillows you have. Always refer to the care label or manufacturer’s guidelines for the best care practices. Proper care will not only extend the life of your pillows but also ensure a comfortable and hygienic sleeping environment.
The Importance of Good Pillows
The most important thing a pillow can provide is a comfortable support for your head and, especially, neck. Keeping your spine straight during the night can mean the difference between waking up well rested and waking up with back, neck or shoulders aching.
There’s much talk about people who sleep on their backs, sides or fronts. In our experience, very few people tend to stay in one position throughout the night. We move and wriggle, we flip from one side to the other and back. There are no real differences in pillows ‘designed’ for side sleepers, or back sleepers, the only thing that really matters is that the pillow provides good support for you head and neck.
The pillows you use really can affect your day, in ways you may not immediately be aware. The pillows you sleep on can affect the way your spine is aligned, which can either relieve or strain your back. This can cause headaches during the day, plus that general ‘groggy’ feeling of an unsatisfactory nights’ sleep.
After time, and lots of washing, pillows can tend to go flat. When that happens, either use a second pillow, or consider some new, bouncier, fluffier pillows.

Cotton vs Polycotton – which is best? That’s a difficult question and all depends on what you want. Cotton is more expensive, but polycotton is way more durable and long-lasting. Cotton tends to be softer, but polycotton brings a crisp and clean feel to your bedding.
Cotton vs Polycotton
It’s all a matter of preference! Cotton feels softer on your skin, but polycotton feels crisp and fresh on your bed. Cotton is less strong and more likely to tear, whereas polycotton is a much stronger material, less likely to tear.
Cotton is also notoriously awkward to keep clean. It requires lower temperatures, meaning a less thorough wash and is considerably more difficult to iron. Polycotton however, can be washed a temperatures up to 60°, meaning a much cleaner wash. It can be tumble dried without any problems and is much easier to iron. Combining cotton and polyester makes the garment less prone to piling and static. One of the main advantages of the cotton-polyester blend is that it is more wrinkle-free.

Polycotton is Strong & Durable
Polycotton is a highly durable material as Polyester contains strong plastic-like substances, making it far less likely to rip or tear. The durable nature of Polycotton makes it an very popular choice in commercial situations such as hotels, where bed sheets are often changed often.
Polycotton is a blend of natural cotton and synthetic polyester. Both Cotton and Polycotton bed sheets are easy to care for, both types of fabric can be washed on normal cycles in your washing machine and can be dried in the dryer. It is advised to wash cotton at lower temperatures (around 30° or 40°) however Polycotton can be washed at higher temperatures – up to 60° – for ultimate cleanliness. Washing natural fabrics like cotton 60 degrees may (most likely, will) cause them to shrink, however polycotton will not. That said, there are a number of types of cotton and polycotton, so always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines when washing and drying your sheets and bed linen.
