As you can see it's less work than one might think to clean your buckwheat pillow.
If your hulls become wet by accident, immediately put the pillow outside into the sun for it to dry out.
If you accidentally spill Coffee or other liquids over your pillow, we recommend replacing the hulls. This does not mean you have to buy a new pillow. Buckwheat Hulls Pillow Filling is available in our addon section, as well as on plenty of other retailers websites.
