Body pillows can be used in several ways. If you sleep are a back sleeper, a body pillow can be used as a pillow if your bed partner prefers the same level of comfort. If you are a side sleeper, spooning a body pillow is very comfortable. If you have lower back pain, the body pillow will provide pressure relief for lower back and hip pain. Memory foam body pillows are conforming to the sleeper’s body weight so it’s highly customizable to your exact comfort level.
Depending on what your body pillow is made out of, you have several options when it comes to keeping it clean. The Snuggle Pedic body pillow is machine washable. We tested that out ourselves in the review process. The pillow will fit in your large capacity washing machine but you may have to stuff it in but it will fit. With a normal wash, use your regular detergent, and let it run a full wash cycle just like you would any other load. Running the pillow through a 2nd spin at the end of the cycle is recommended to get the most water out as possible. Allow the mattress to air dry but run it for 20 minutes in the dryer to fluff the shredded memory foam. Flipping the pillow to the other side and running it another 20 minutes in the dryer will even out the levels of dampness. Repeat this process several more times until your pillow is completely dry and ready for use again.
