Washing and Maintenance of Pillows

Jun 27, 2023

The down pillow is a delicate product and, to preserve it carefully, it is important to know how to wash and store it in the best possible way.

If it does not suffer any particular damage, the pillow can easily be washed once a year before being put away; in fact, frequent washing is not necessary to keep it fresh.

If you notice dust on the surface, we recommend removing it with a light-handed brush. We recommend not slamming the pillow vigorously to avoid breaking the feathers inside.

  • The recommended wash is 40°; medium temperatures in fact avoid ruining the external fabric.
  • Dry cleaning allowed in the laundry by carefully following the washing instructions.
  • Use mild detergents and plenty of water to ensure you remove all traces of soap. Avoid using chlorine-based detergents which irreparably damage the down.
  • Spin to remove as much water as possible.
  • Tumble drying at medium/low temperatures is permitted. Dry the pillows in the open air, always keeping the pillows in the shade so as not to yellow the outer fabric.

Use or store the pillow only when completely dry. We recommend storing the pillow in a dry place inside a cotton bag. Zenoni&Colombi, together with its pillows, provides a practical dustproof bag for storing them.
