Once you’ve selected the perfect pillow with the assistance of Down Etc’s Pillow Butler Program, you’ll never want to leave home without it. If you don’t believe you can survive the trip without your pillow, we have a few suggestions to protect you and your favorite pillow while traveling.
Smaller is Better.
A standard size pillow will take less space than a king size pillow in your suitcase or carry-on bag. A pillow with a down or feather fill will squeeze more easily into whatever space you have available.
Protect Your Investment.
We recommend you consistently use encasements to protect your pillows even at home. It is an inescapable fact that we all drool at night. When we travel, we expose our pillows to more than the usual contaminants, including the hands of other people. Protection is essential. Although you’ve encased your pillow in a protector for your travels, a thorough washing upon your return is a good idea. We’ll provide tips for washing your pillows in future posts.
