How to Take Care of your Throw Pillows: A Guide from Twenty Third by Deanne

Caring for your throw pillows ensures they maintain their appearance and comfort over time, preserving their aesthetic appeal and extending their lifespan. Regular maintenance, including fluffing, cleaning, and proper storage, prevents deterioration and allows pillows to continue enhancing the ambiance of the living space.

At Twenty Third by Deanne, we want to ensure all the pillows we offer in our collections are made from high quality materials. Here are some tips for making sure your fluffy home decor lives a longer life!

Wash throw pillows with care. 

Occasional washing can help keep these pillows looking their best. Check the care label for washing instructions and opt for a gentle cycle with mild detergent, but air drying is usually the safest option to preserve delicate fabrics, but a low-heat tumble dry can speed up the process if needed.

Clean spills as soon as possible.

Accidents happen, but they don't have to leave a lasting mark on your throw pillows. Keep a gentle upholstery cleaner or mild detergent on hand to spot clean spills and stains as soon as they occur. Blot, don't rub, to prevent the stain from spreading, and your pillows will stay pristine.

Store your pillows properly.

When it's time to switch out your throw pillows or give them a break from daily use, store them properly to prevent damage. Opt for breathable storage bags or containers to protect them from dust and pests, and avoid cramming them into tight spaces that could compress their fillings.

Refresh your pillows. 

Keep your throw pillows smelling fresh between washes by spritzing them with a fabric refresher spray. Look for a gentle, non-toxic formula that won’t leave behind any residue or overpowering scents. A light misting is all it takes to banish stale odors and keep your pillows smelling as good as they look.

Rotate and fluff your pieces.

Experiment with different combinations to keep your spaces looking fresh and inviting. Regularly give your pillows a gentle shake and karate chop to distribute the filling evenly and restore their plumpness.

By incorporating these home care tips into your throw pillow maintenance routine, you can ensure they remain a cherished part of your decor for years to come. After all, a little love and attention go a long way in preserving the beauty and comfort of your favorite throw pillows.
