My husband and I bought a house earlier this year and, since it was an estate sale, we were fortunate to get all of the appliances with the house. Unfortunately, we had to replace the washer after the first two months, and we unplugged the dryer, as it felt more like a half-working fire hazard than anything.

After living in France and using a drying rack in apartment after apartment to avoid laundromat fees, we're used to air-drying our clothes anyway. When it comes to pillows though, is there a way to refluff them like one would with a dryer and tennis balls?

My last resort is to just take them to my mom's, but I'd like to be able to do it at home (and not end up with dog hair in our pillows). Please share any ideas! Thanks in advance!

Haha! I've been thinking about it and I can't come up with anything. I just wanted to see if anyone on here had a secret way I was missing. On to my mom's we go!

Ashley, do you have a tennis racket. Works well for fluffing pillows and removing stress.

If the pillows are stuffed with feathers, a good way to fluff them is to leave them out in cold weather or put them in a freezer for a few hours. The cold with make the quills on the feathers fluff up just like they do on chickens in the cold. My mom used to do this all the time in the winter.
