Why Do Hotel Pillows Feel So Good?

Sinking your head into the plump pillows is one of the best parts of staying in a hotel. It offers the comfort, luxury and escapism that you were looking for when you booked the hotel stay!

All over the world, hotels are one of the biggest consumers of pillows. In fact, the global pillow market is expected to grow by $9.67 billion by the year 2026, showing how the demand for good quality pillows is continuing to boom.

In this article, we will answer the question ‘why do hotel pillows feel so good?’

Why do hotel pillows feel so good?

Hotels put a lot of thought and effort into making their rooms appealing, indulgent and comfortable for their guests. Hotels also have to take into consideration that their guests will have different sleeping styles: some people are front sleepers, some people sleep on their back, while others are happier with hard, firm pillows.

After all, no hotel wants an array of negative ratings on TripAdvisor due to cheap pillows that are uncomfortable and rip easily- that would drive away customers and bring down business!

Here are several reasons as to why do hotel pillows feel so good:

  • Hotel pillows are softer, fluffier and more luxurious. Their fill material is usually 100% genuine goose down or feathers.
  • Hotel pillows offer long-lasting support for the head and upper body. The cloud-like feel of hotel pillows is amazing for keeping your head, neck and spine healthily aligned.
  • Hotel pillows are replaced more often, so these newer pillows will always feel plumper and more comfortable to rest your head on.
  • Hotel pillows are made from high-quality materials, which enhance comfort and breathability.
  • Hotel pillows tend to be more expensive, as hotels are eager to spend copious amounts of money on premium-quality pillows for their guests.
  • Hotel pillows are hypoallergenic, which is helpful for keeping away allergens such as dust mites- which is excellent for relieving symptoms such as sneezing, coughing and a runny nose.
  • Hotel pillows are cleaned much more often, to remove germs and to meet health and safety requirements.
  • Hotel pillows tend to hold their shape well, as they strike the right balance of softness and firmness.
  • Hotel pillows use higher-end, luxurious pillow cases, such as silk.
  • Hotel pillows have protective covers, which keep the pillows fresher and make them last longer.

How often should I clean my pillows?

Your pillow can be a breeding ground for bacteria, dust mites and germs. In fact, after just one week of use, a pillow can harbour more bacteria than a toilet seat!

What’s more, an unwashed pillow case can hold up to 39 times more bacteria than a pet food bowl.

Nasty germs can accumulate on your pillows from your face, dead skin cells, hair, saliva, and even due to the humidity in your bedroom.

So, it is best practice to wash your pillows every 3 to 6 months.

Pillowcases should be washed at least once every 2 weeks.

Can you put pillows in the washing machine?

Yes, as long as the care label says that your pillows are suitable for machine washing.

You should wash your pillows on a gentle cycle, using only mild detergent.

Allow wet pillows to fully dry, before you use them again, as mould and mildew can grow in a damp environment.

If your pillows are not suitable for machine washing, then you can hand wash them instead.

How do you hand wash pillows?

If your pillows cannot be put in the washing machine, then follow these simple steps to hand wash them instead:

  • Take off the pillow cases, and wash these separately.
  • Fill a tub or sink with warm water and a spoon of mild detergent or soap powder.
  • Submerge the pillow in the soapy water.
  • Gently squeeze the pillow to dislodge the dirt, and let the water penetrate through.
  • Do not wring the pillow harshly, as this could cause the pillow to lose its shape and fluffiness.
  • Rinse the pillow, so that the soap and bubbles have all gone.
  • Allow the pillow to fully dry, either outdoors in the fresh air, or in a well-ventilated area indoors.
  • Do not re-use the pillow or place a pillowcase over it while it is still damp.
