General Questions

Although a few of our pillows do come to us in retail packaging, a majority of them are sent to us in bulk packaging. Because most of the pillows that we offer are only available to wholesale customers there is little need for individual packaging of the pillows. We still like to give our customers a retail experience, so for the items that are sent us in bulk packaging, we repackage them in our own pillow bags and send them out to you.

TA: A large amount of email that we respond to deals with sleep position and trying to find the most comfortable and supportive pillow for that position. Side sleepers especially need support and a proper position to avoid neck pain. Most studies show that side sleeping with slightly bent legs and using a body pillow between the knees is excellent for spine position. For your head using a puffy synthetic or larger fill down/feather pillow will ensure your head and neck stay in proper alignment. For people that prefer down and softer pillows using two will allow for proper support and comfort. The key to side sleeping is remembering to keep the spine angle, legs and head all on a parallel plane to ensure no pain come morning. Sleep Well. Live Well.

It depends on the type of pillow and its functionality. We would recommend evaluating your pillows occasionally to test for comfort and support. You can do this by checking to see if the batting or foam inside the pillow is lumpy, or for feather pillows if it can still be properly fluffed enough to offer support. If you are especially prone to allergies then you might want to change your pillow more frequently to avoid dust build up that’s inevitable over time. Bottom line, we would recommend changing your pillows every 2-3 years, and once a year if you have trouble with allergies.

Most pillows can be washed at home. Here are some easy steps for you to follow. Step 1. Wash in cold water with a mild detergent. Step 2. Have the wash on the fastest spin cycle to ring out as much water as possible. Step 3. Dry on low. You will have to run the dryer for a few cycles to insure that the fill on the inside is fully dry! This process can take a few hours. If you are ever unsure how your pillow will hold up in the wash, check the wash instructions on the tag or take it into the dry cleaners. When it comes to foam pillows, you want to make sure you never wash these. You can take off most memory foam pillow cotton covers and wash those, however, only spot clean the foam pillow itself.

Yes! More specifically the pillowcases can cause acne. However, you can prevent acne by changing your pillowcases once a week and wash your pillow at least twice a year. It is always wise to use pillow protectors to help your pillows last longer and stay cleaner. Pillow protectors provide an extra layer between yourself and the pillow. They are also much easier to clean then a pillow.

This is a great questions! It all boils down to moisture. Those gross yellow stains can be caused by sweat, drool, makeup, chemicals or even wet hair. Most the time those yellow stains are harmless, however, if it is paired with a smell, definitely toss it and buy a new pillow. We recommend buying new pillows every 2 years so when you start seeing those yellow stains let it be a reminder to get new pillows soon.

A down alternative pillow is filled with a silky-soft synthetic fiber that is meant to mimic the feel of goose or duck down. Down are the fuzzy little feathers that are underneath a bird

To be honest, most feather and down pillows are not free from allergens. Bedding companies over the years have discovered that dust particles attached to feathers and down, not the feathers/down themselves, cause allergies to flare up. One company, in particular, has made it their mission to provide allergen-free feather and down bedding to their consumers. This company is Pacific Coast Feather Company®. This company maintains thorough quality testing policies. Immediately after the feather/down reaches the United States, the product is tested to ensure their strict quality guidelines are met. They then place the feathers/down in large washers and begin their Hyperclean ™ process. They are then placed into drying bins. To ensure that all dust particles are removed, these feathers/down will run through this process 8 times. The Pacific Coast Feather Company ® is the only feather/down bedding manufacturer to be endorsed by the American Lung Association ®. Of course, even by going through a Hyperclean ™ process, allergens can still remain. For this reason we always recommend using both a pillow protector and pillow shams to make sure that there is a minimal possibility of material getting out of the pillow. As an added benefit a pillow protector will also help your new pillow last longer.

A: This is a common question for our customer service team. People who have been purchasing down and feather pillows for a long time know this natural products can occasionally have a natural odor from the reimnets of oil on the down and feathers. Most common reason this odor happens is moisture or heat on the down. Sometimes during the shipping process your pillow experiences heat and humidity. This will cause the down to release the smell from the oils on the feathers. Duck down and feather have a tendency to do this more than goose down and feather. An easy way to air out the odor is to leave your pillow outside in the fresh air and in the sun. You can also put your pillow in the dryer on low with a dryer sheet and let the dryer air it out for you.

Hotels take extra care of their pillows to create a luxurious experience for guests. Most pillows at hotels are typically filled with a combination of down and feather, which creates a soft, plush feel. This filling makes the pillows extra fluffy. These pillows require a lot maintenance though. Hotels housekeeping have to fluff the pillows every single day to keep the shape and the fullness. The pillows at hotels also typically have a pillow protector on them. With this pillow protector, the pillow case can be tucked, which keeps the pillow's loft in place.

: As there are different pillows used at the same hotel, it is important to take note of the pillow you slept on. The more information you have on the pillow, the chance of ordering the same pillow is very high. Finding out the information of the pillow is pretty simple. There is typically two tags attached to the pillow, which one is the brand logo tag and the other is a long white paper tag with a barcode, called a law tag. If the pillow has both tags, it will be the easiest way to find the exact pillow you are sleeping on. The law tag with the bar code will have the fill content on it. This will tell you exactly what is in the inside of the pillow you slept on. Sometimes the manufacturer has the item unavailable or not on their website. In this case, it is best to contact the manufacturer about what hotel you slept at and any information you know about the pillow. There is the problem of no tags on the pillow or you did not get any information, but don't worry! Contact the hotel directly and ask to speak to housekeeping. They can help you out with giving as much information they have on the pillow, which usually includes the SKU number. The best way to find out to order the pillow you experienced at the hotel is to ask the hotel housekeeping.
