About Tempurpedic pillows

Tempurpedic foam, also known as Memory foam, was originally developed by NASA as aircraft safety cushion. The texture of the foam is much denser and more vicious than that of regular foam. You can easily examine this feature by pressing your hand on the pillow. The texture will keep the imprint there for a while, which explains the name Memory firm.

What Tempurpedic pillows do is that they distribute weight equally, thus help you avoid neck pain and other pain-related to incorrect sleeping posture. As a result, memory foam is frequently used in hospital and medical facilities. Especially during cases when the patients have to lay immobile for a long duration because Tempurpedic foam removes the pressure sores caused by static poses. That is not to mention these pillows also promote blood circulation and deep sleep. For those people with a sleeping problem or body pain, Tempurpedic pillows are definitely their go-to choice.

How to clean Tempurpedic pillows

It is advisable to clean your Tempurpedic pillow every one or two months. This article will introduce you two techniques of cleaning it. You can choose either of them whichever suits you better, but keep in mind that you should avoid washing the pillow with the washing machine at all cost. The texture of the material is very dedicated and easy to break. Plus the density of foam will take a long time to dry.

Method 1:

  • The first step in cleaning Tempur-Pedic pillows is to remove the pillow cases. After the cases are removed, you can start rolling and unrolling the pillow in different directions. The purpose of this is to get rid of the bad air and infuse your pillow with fresh air.
  • To eliminate the odor, sprinkle baking soda all over the surface of the pillow. You should leave the pillow there for at least one day before brushing off the dust. It is recommendable to use a vacuum to do this. Otherwise, you might end up breathing in baking soda during sleep.
  • The next step is to spot cleaning the pillow. Keep in mind that you will be pressing your face into this pillow while you sleep every night. You probably don’t want to use any harsh chemical, do you? For the reason, most people would look for a mild cleansing solution, either dish soap or a mixture of soap and water will do. Once you have your cleansing solution ready, use a paper towel to gently dab the soap over the stain and allow it to dry off.
  • After you have completed all cleaning steps, you can put the pillow case back in. You might want to wash your pillow sheet separately too or change into another one. (I assume you have more than one pillowcase, right?)

And there you go, your pillow is fresh like new. It will definitely guarantee a good night sleep for you.

Method 2:

Another technique to freshen your Tempurpedic pillow is to leave it out under the sunlight for a couple of days. This technique, also known as Solar Cleaning, is an old custom in China and many cultures. Should you have the chance to visit China, notice how people put their blankets and pillows all over balconies, swings, and benches.
You might assume that Chinese people are hanging the laundry out in the sun so that it can dry off. That could probably be the case, but more often, people are just solar cleaning their bed stuff. In today society when everyone is busy with work, solar cleaning is becoming more and more popular.

If you are always in the rush for time and need an effortless way of cleaning or you just simply lazy, this would certainly be your favorite technique. The rationale behind this technique is that ultraviolet light in the sun kills the bacteria and fungi in your pillow and allows it to breathe. So if you are looking for an economic, chemical free and simple way to clean your pillow, you should seriously consider Solar Cleaning.

Hello, my name is Jerry and I am an expert on pillows. While I’m sure that everyone has some expertise when it comes to a pillow since we spend a good 7 to 8 hours or more each night with at least one under our heads, I have developed a special interest in finding the right types of pillows that actually help you sleep better. When I grew up, I really didn’t have an easy time getting a good night’s sleep because I didn’t understand that pillows are more than just bags full of stuffing. In fact, there are many different types of pillows and finding the right one can help you sleep better just like it does for me. Plus, I learned all about how your sleeping position affect the pillow you are using and which type is best for your particular needs.
