It’s always a bit embarrassing to hide my yellow pillowcases from others or, worst of all, throw them away. I wish I knew that solution already!
Do you spend so much time cleaning your bedroom thinking about your pillows? If you’re like most homeowners, the answer is no, so you’ve probably seen yellow and rough looking pillows over time. But don’t throw away the yellow pillows because Jillee was able to find a better way.
JIllee is the owner of “a Good Thing Past Jillee,” a blog dedicated to providing homemade tips to make your life easier. Her search for a cheaper alternative to buying new pillows began with a comment on how often she bought yellow pillows.
But Jillee wasn’t quite ready to throw the pillowcase away yet. She would at least try to find an alternative she could do around the house. So she went online!
As you can imagine, her search yielded results that she was proud to share on his website.

Three simple steps for whiter, cleaner pillows
Once you’ve collected all the ingredients, you’ll want to run the pillows by washing them on a hot water bike. Be sure to let them get wet for a long time. If your washing machine doesn’t have a soft function, you can use a bathtub or even a pot of hot water on your stove. If you are using your set top stove, make sure your water is boiling.
Add the ingredients to the mixture and let them dissolve. When the powder dissolves, pour the mixture over your pillow. Be sure to let the pillows get completely wet. So just wait 30 minutes.
After that, let the pillows rinse thoroughly and run for a cycle so that they dry completely.
Results will speak for themselves
This will extend the life of your pillows and prevent you from visiting the pillow section of your big box store for several years to several years.
