5. How to Maintain Faux Fur Pillows
Faux fur's non-shedding properties make it an excellent choice for busy people.
The easiest way to maintain your faux fur pillows is to wash them in a washing machine. For regular maintenance, before washing, we recommend separating the cover from the insert if possible. Then, proceed to wash only the covers.
The right temperature setting would be "cold". However, like most furry fabric, we do not recommend drying in a dryer. Instead, opt-in for air drying to maintain the best look and texture of the fabric over time.
Their inserts can also be washed in a machine. However, if there is a separate cover for the insert, we recommend removing the faux fur cover from the insert pillow for a more thorough washing and drying.
As far as spills are concerned, if they are not dry yet, gently dab the liquid up with a damp towel. However, it does get a little trickier once the stains have dried. Try soaking the pillow cover for 20 minutes in warm soapy water separately from the insert. You may do the same with the insert as well if it is stained. Otherwise, we recommend washing only the cover if possible. Wool-friendly mild detergent like Woolite is recommended.
