Teen Throw Pillows FAQ
How do you wash throw pillows?
Before washing your pillows, always check the label for care instructions. You can typically launder throw pillows made of cotton, linen, or synthetic materials in the washing machine. Use the delicate cycle and hang your pillow to dry. When your throw pillow is nearly dry, toss it in the dryer, using the no-heat setting to fluff it. More delicate fabrics may require spot cleaning or dry cleaning. Before washing your pillow, use a damp cloth or sponge to rub an inconspicuous spot. If color runs, opt for dry cleaning.
How should you arrange throw pillows on a bed?
For a luxurious look on your teen's bed, line the headboard with Euro pillows. Use one Euro pillow for a twin, two for a full, and three for queen- or king-size mattresses. Next, place throw pillows in front of the Euro pillows. For a twin bed, 16- or 18-inch throw pillows are a good size. Pillows measuring 20 inches are ideal for full, queen, and king beds.
What size throw pillows should you use for a couch?
Base your selection of throw pillows on the size of your couch. If you're outfitting a more modern couch with clean lines, choose pillows that are 18 inches or smaller. Larger throw pillows may overwhelm the furniture. If you're tossing pillows on a larger, chunkier piece of furniture, such as a sectional, go for pillows that measure at least 20 inches square.
