    ok, Spartan quilter.... tell me how to wash feather pillows!! I live in hot, dry, Tucson, AZ, and I can't get the pillows to dry after I wash them, and when I pull them out of the washing machine, they weigh about 50 lbs with all the water that stays in them!! I MUST be doing ALOT wrong!! Help me!! :-(

    Thanks dunster, I needed a good smile and up beat tonight. That's a great idea, there are so many in this country right now that should have this method used. lol

    We took a feather bed to a dry cleaner. I asked to have the fathers cleaned and put into pillows. I only got two pillows but was told they would be very, very expensive if we bought them.

    LOL So true and we are bad :) I'm still laughing out loud ( I'm glad my neighbors can't hear me or they might just call the looney bin on me LOL) Why not make some throw pillows, cat / dog beds ????

    If you do not want to deal with it, place it on FREE CYCLE, For sure someone would appreciate :) Sometimes we all get tired of something and just do not want, but there is one to take it just around the corner :)

    cushion filling but don't forget to use feather proof ticking , you could also make some surplus pillows, both SO much better than these ghastly man made fillers.

    I took apart a down eiderdown and did the above and "hoovered" them out in a "Henry" cylinder which was new.
    you may like to wash or stove the feathers first.
