Q-01: When do you need to fluff this pillow?


Answer: Fluffing your bamboo pillow is regular work. When you are using a pillow regularly, the pillow will lose its fluffiness. As I mentioned above, the bamboo pillow is filled up by memory foam. Due to using this pillow, the memory foam of this pillow compresses.


 So, you have to decompress the memory foam inside the pillow.

 Normally, all types of pillow started to flatten because of the moisture of our body. If our living area is humid, it will enhance the chance of flattening our pillow more rapidly than an area without humidity. So, there needs regular maintenance to make your bamboo pillow fluffy again. as this same way you can fluff your bamboo comforter as well.

 There are three ways you can fluff the bamboo pillow.

  •    You can put in a dryer for a 10 -20 minutes.
  •    You can manually do it by pulling the foam apart.
  •    You can place it in the sun heat

For placing in the sun heat, you should buy Adjustable drying rack. this will save your pillow from dust of ground and allow sun heat from all the side.

Use your both hand to fluff this pillow

Answer: For a beautiful night, every people should decompress their bamboo memory foam regularly on the day time. To do this, you need to give a few minutes.

  • Try to separate the cushioned memory foam by hand. This will increase the flow of air inside the pillow. And this will also help to make the pillow cotton swollen.
  •  After waking up in the morning, hold the two edges of the pillow and gently shake it. After a few shaking, the memory foam of the pillow will be separated from each other.
  • And finally, give punch from both sides of the pillow. That will allow air penetration to the memory foam of the pillow. By these ways, the memory foam of the bamboo pillow will distribute evenly.

 Special Tips

1. Pull the memory foam to apart 

Go ahead to manually pull the foam to apart from each other in the pillow. It is a little hard to do it sometimes. But once you get started, it is really easy. After doing it manually for a few minutes, you will find this pillow has a lot of loft to it. By this way, you can create your perfect pillow. So, adjustability is one of the major benefits of bamboo pillow.To learn more benefits of this pillow, you can read  benefits of bamboo pillow.

2.Reduce some memory foam to adjust the loftiness of the pillow

 On one side of this pillow, there is a zipper. This is going to allow you to take apart some of the memory foam to adjust the loftiness of the pillow. And by reducing some memory foam you can make the pillow according to your needs.

3. Preserve the excess memory foam for future use

 You can use top ware to preserve the extra memory foam. We are highly recommending you to keep track your excess memory foam, as you never know later you need to add some memory foam to this pillow. So, make sure you keep track of that.

 After taking some excess memory foam out, you will get a new shape of your bamboo pillow.

4.Adjust bamboo pillow for stomach sleepers 

 Normally, if you are stomach sleepers you need a low loft at one side of the pillow. If you are a back sleeper you need a low to the medium loft.

5. Adjust the memory foam for side sleepers

 If you side sleepers you need the medium to the high loft from your pillow.

 You can really shape it according to your needs because of the shredded quality.

6. What you need to do for back sleepers

If you are a back sleeper you need to rest your head and support for your neck as well. So, you need to make a hole in the middle of the pillow manually by pushing the foam to the corner of the pillow.  So, after pushing the memory foam to all corners in the pillow, you will get a hole to rest your head in. and as a result, the side of the pillow has more memory foam then the middle of the pillow to support your neck properly.


7. what you need to do if you sleep on your back and side in the night


 If you sleep on your back and the side in the night as I do. Then you need to do some adjustment of the memory foam to get comfort for both sleeping styles in a night.

So, half of the pillow support for back sleeper and half of the pillow support of side sleeper. So the side you use on your side you need a higher loft and the side you use on your back you need a lower loft. 

To do this, take the pillow and push down the memory foam to the one side of the pillow. After doing this you can take both advantages to form a single pillow.

1. How often you should use a dryer to plump the bamboo  pillow

Do not use dryer every day to fluff your pillow. Rather, you may use it weekly. If you own a down comforter. you may fluff the comforter by putting it in the dryer also. 


2. How do you using a dryer to make the pillow fluffy

  •   If you place the memory foam filled bamboo pillow in the dryer every day, your       pillow will get damaged. Additionally, the memory foam of your pillow will lose its    ingredients due to over dry.
  •   So, we are suggesting you place the bamboo pillow in the dryer once in a week if it    is a humid season.
  •  But for a summer season, place the bamboo pillow for drying in the dryer after a   week.
  •  When you place the pillow in the dryer add two or three tennis ball. The tennis    ball  helps to separate the memory foam in the drying process. This way your compressed pillow will swell again.
