68. Freshen Up Throw Pillows and Blankets

Taking the time to freshen up pillows and throw blankets can help reduce odors, bacteria, and possibly even dust mites.

You can do this with a variety of store-bought products and DIY treatments commonly found on sites like Pinterest and depending on your goals. Some people may have their pillows and throws dry cleaned if they’re more delicate, while others prefer to wash them on their own, following the care instructions.

Regardless if you plan to toss them in the washer and dryer now and then (or the dryer on a steam “refresh” setting, or prefer maintenance-style to spritz with your favorite deodorizing or bacteria-slaying product or DIY treatment, it really only takes a few minutes of actual effort.


Tips and Helpful Habits

  • Try to purchase machine-washable throw blankets, pillows, and pillow inserts so that you can better maintain them and remove issues like odors, dander, dirt, dust, and dust mite feces with ease.
  • Make it a part of your regular monthly or even quarterly routine to freshen up your pillows. During your off-time, try vacuuming or shaking them out every so often.
  • Steam can sometimes work to freshen up throw pillows. Just make sure to test or read the care instructions first.
