How to wash your Aeros Inflatable Pillow

It has been a couple of years since we launched our inflatable Aeros Pillows, and in that time they have gained a reputation as the most comfortable, quietest, easiest to use, lightest, and most packable pillows on the market. Oh, and they’ve also become the best-selling backpacking/camping pillows on the market, too.

Many people have written to us to say that they wonder how they ever camped or traveled without an Aeros Pillow. With all this pillow love going on, a little advice on how to wash an Aeros Pillow seemed appropriate. Here’s how:

Firstly – what kind of Aeros Pillow do you have? There are two types:

 

    Ultralight/Premium Pillow:

    Begin by closing the valve to make sure that water does not get inside the bladder. There’s no need to use any special type of soap. Regular laundry soap will work fine. Immerse the pillow into the soapy water and knead it gently with your hands.

    Once you’re confident that the pillow is clean, repeat the above procedure with clean water to rinse the soap from the pillow’s face fabric; you may need to rinse a couple of times.

    Squeeze the excess water from the face fabric, then hang the pillow up to air dry.

    Do not dry the pillow in a tumble dryer, as this could damage the TPU bladder.

    Make sure the pillow is completely dry before you store it to prevent mold or mildew.

    Pro Tip: we now have Pillowcases available which can be removed from the pillow and easily hand or machine washed.

    Aeros Down Pillow:

    Begin by closing the valve to make sure that water does not get inside the bladder. Use a down soap such as Grangers Down Wash. Supermarket laundry ‘soap’ will leave residue in the down which may prevent it from lofting properly. Add the Down Wash to warm water, immerse the pillow and knead it gently with your hands.

    Once you’re confident that the pillow is clean, repeat the above procedure with clean water to rinse the soap from the pillow’s face fabric; you may need to rinse a couple of times.

    Squeeze the excess water from the face fabric, then hang the pillow up to air dry. You should shake the pillow from time to time to prevent the down from forming into clumps. The down may take longer to dry thoroughly than the fabric of the pillow - make sure the whole pillow is completely dry before you store it to prevent mold or mildew.

    Do not dry the pillow in a tumble dryer, as this could damage the TPU bladder.


    How to store your Aeros Pillow:

    Store it flat or loosely rolled up with the valve open. It is essential to avoid long-term storage of the pillow tightly packed in its stuff sack with the valve closed – any trapped moisture (from condensation) can weaken the bladder.

      Dear, I have a pillow which the bladder inside has disintegrated.
      Can I send it in for replacement repair of the bladder?

      Tom -

      You can repair a pinhole puncture in an Aeros Pillow using Gear Aid Seam Grip – it is easier with the Ultralight than with the Premium. Clean the area around the hole with isopropyl alcohol, then drop a very small blob of Seam Grip directly onto the hole (in the case of the Premium,. This means finding the hole in the internal bladder, which may not correspond with a hole in the knitted ‘pillowcase’). Ensure that the pillow is positioned so the fabric surface / film of the other side of the pillow cannot come into contact with the area you are repairing – the Seam Grip will stick both sides of the pillow together permanently. Allow the Seam Grip to dry for at least 24 hours before rolling and packing the pillow. If you would like further assistance, please contact us at warranty@seatosummit.com
