I was just wondering --- how often do you wash your comforter? And by that I mean the fiberfill comforter not a duvet cover etc.
Typically when I do wash it, its best for me to go to a laundromat and use the large mega machines. So quite time consuming, and hassle walking to the laundromat etc. But hey, nice clean comforter when done.
I've used my apartment washers and sometimes its a total hassle --- tilting the machine, not rinsing completely. Fun times.
Anyway, how often do you wash your comforter?
And do you wash your pillows too (the poly fill ones)? I sometimes wash them -- but sometimes more apt to just replace after awhile (often depends on how they are wearing). I am still in search of a pillow that I like from the start. I know many that don't wash their pillows but simply toss and replace periodically (and I use the word periodically loosely... I remember seeing on tv that some use the same pillow for years -- talking 10, 20, 30 years ). I wonder how often "they" say a pillow should be replaced?
Last question, I have two European Square pillows --- has anyone washed those? The pillows are so thick and big that I would have to use the commercial machines - I can't imagine it would be worth it. Plus, I have a feeling it would be a problem rinsing out the soap etc. I'm thinking that I can just get a cheap replacement since I don't sleep on them.
I often wake up with a stuffed nose -- so thinking that a mega washing of everything might help. Or at least worth a try. Today I just washed the sheets, pillowcases, and cotton blanket -- but not the rest.
