A Helpful Tip

Have you ever tried to wash pillows but once the process was through they ended up completely deformed and lumpy?
Well have I got a SOLUTION for you!

When looking at the care instructions for some of our bedroom pillows, it had a piece of information I would have never thought of.
It said to dry our pillows with some clean TENNIS BALLS!

I was a little skeptical that it would work and was afraid that the green from the tennis ball might rub off on my white pillows, but let me tell you...I WAS WRONG!

After washing my two pillows, I grabbed my three tennis balls I had from when Andrew and I attempted to play tennis (haha) and just threw them right in the dryer along with the pillows. 

My pillows finished drying, and I pulled them out...THEY ARE GOOD AS NEW!

I don't see any green stains and no pillow lumps are there.

I'm so glad that I found this tip and can't wait to see if it works on all our pillows!
The only negative aspect of this is the noise the tennis balls make in the dryer, however I think it's all worth it if
there are no more lumpy pillows for the Lawrences!
