  1. My LG front loader hates when I wash my pillow. The cycle stops during the rinse cycle because it becomes unbalanced!

  2. But how do i care for my bed linens?

  3. I have a Purple Harmony pillow, which I love. They specifically tell you NOT to wash the latex insert but the outer cover can be machine washed!

  4. I use those those dust mite zippered covers. Very helpful against allergies.
