How to clean a Buckwheat Pillow?


Buckwheat Pillows last for up to 10 years if properly taken care of

Properly taken care means cleaning out the Buckwheat Hulls from time to time and airing out the Hulls.

This can best be done by leaving your pillow outside on your balcony or patio for a day.

The simple answer is NO.
Only the cover can be washed(inner and outer covers of our Pillows are washable).
Do not wash the whole buckwheat pillow. It can and will destroy your washing machine as well as the pillow itself.

Can you wash the Buckwheat Hulls?

We do not recommend washing the hulls. Water exposure can break down and degenerate the structure of the Buckwheat Hulls.

The hulls can also get moldy by doing that.

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.
