What Today’s Guest Expects to Find in Their Hotel Bathroom

While it is perhaps not the most exciting area of the standard hotel room or hotel suite, the hotel bathroom is an important part of it. And while no traveler would really expect to find everything they have in their bathroom space at home in the bathroom in their hotel room, there are certain things that the modern traveler simply expects to find there, And the hotelier who ensures that their establishment meets – and ideally exceeds – those expectations – is one who should see a good return on their investments in the form of increased guest satisfaction.

So just what is the 21st-century traveler looking for in a hotel bathroom? Let’s take a look at some of the essentials.

An Abundance of Amazing Towels

Whenever a guest steps into their hotel bathroom for the first time the one thing you can be sure they are looking for is a plentiful supply of towels. It’s the rare person who makes use of just a single towel after a shower or bath and so it’s only natural that a guest expects that their ‘towel needs’ – and those of anyone else sharing the room with them, will be met.

When it comes to the towels themselves guests expect them to be clean (of course), available in several different sizes (body, face, hands etc) and soft and fluffy, rather than thin or scratchy. A hotelier shopping for hotel bathroom supplies does have a budget to stick to though, so must balance the need for ‘soft and fluffy’ with the need not to break the bank.

A great choice? The Five Star Hotel Collection® from WestPoint Hospitality. 100% Ring spun, combed cotton loops provide plushness, enhance absorbency and give the towels elegant appearance. Easy to launder, they are available in several different sizes and color options, making stocking a hotel bathroom with just the right towels a breeze. 

Complimentary Toiletry Basics

Hotel guests simply expect that, even if they have brought along their own plentiful supply of toiletries that the hotel will also provide the basics – free of charge – in their hotel bathroom. And while they may not expect that these be of the most luxurious, salon quality standard they do expect them to be usable. So stocking up on (at least) soap, shampoo and conditioner, toothpaste and maybe even a scented body wash (which many guests will prefer to bar soap) should be a must for any hotelier.

The Little Extras That Make a Big Difference

The average hotel guest tends to value establishments that ‘surprise them’ with little extras during their stay. And the savvy hotelier will go that extra mile to do so, as the ROI on a small investment in additional hotel bathroom supplies in the form of improved reviews on Yelp!, TripAdvisor and the like alone will be significant.

What kinds of extras are we talking about when it comes to hotel bathroom supplies? A robe and slippers are always very much appreciated by both men and women and choosing options like the 1888 MILLS 100% cotton waffle robe allows hoteliers to supply high-quality robes to guests at an affordable price.

Also appreciated are small electronic appliances like hairdryers and even irons, especially by those who are traveling for business and need to look their best!

By making the extra investment in stocking your hotel bathrooms with the supplies guests want – and even expect – to see in such a space you will be helping to ensure a better experience for all of your guests, which can only lead to better results for you too.

Duvet vs Comforter – What’s the Difference and Which Should You Choose?

Any hotelier wants to provide their guests with the highest level of comfort possible, especially when it comes to the bed they will sleep in during the course of their stay. When it comes to hotel bedding, after the sheets and pillows – and pillow cases – are chosen, hoteliers are faced with another choice; will a duvet or comforter top off the bedding ensemble?

Ultimately, of course, the answer comes down to personal preference and budget. Each option has its pros and cons. But when making the choice between comforter and duvet there are some basics that should be kept in mind. Here’s a look at some of the most important.

What is the Definition of a Duvet?

In the most basic terms, a duvet is an especially plush quilt that is typically filled with feathers, down or a synthetic down alternative. A duvet is quilted in either a box or channel pattern and often they resemble a rather large, soft, fluffy sack. Duvets are commonly sized so that there is a minimum amount of ‘hang over’ from the bed, which allows for a very neat, modern look when the bed is fully made.

When shopping for a duvet hoteliers will usually find them offered in either white or beige. This is because they are designed to be used with a duvet cover, an item that is basically a pillowcase for the duvet. This means that almost any look can be achieved, as the number of duvet covers available is very extensive and a custom-made cover that matches a hotel’s decor exactly is another option as well.

Important Duvet Pros

Duvets definitely offer some great benefits, including all of the following:

  • People – as in guests in this case – love duvets because they are warm but surprisingly lightweight.
  • The removable duvet cover can be changed as often as needed – or desired – giving hoteliers the option to change up the look of their bedding with ease and at a relatively affordable cost.
  • There’s no need for a top sheet when using a duvet as a part of a bedding ensemble, so making the bed is a faster, easier process.

Possible Duvet Cons

  • Duvets do tend to be a little more expensive
  • A duvet cover does have to be used at all times. They should be laundered once a month and this does call for extra effort on the part of the housekeeping staff in terms of taking the cover on and off.

What is the Definition of a Comforter?

The comforter began to replace duvets in the late 19th century in the US – the duvet remains the bedding of choice in Europe to this day – and these days they are the most common bedding choice for the general public.

A comforter, like a duvet, is a quilt crafted from two layers of fabric stuffed with feathers, down, or most commonly a synthetic alternative. Usually, a comforter is not as soft and ‘fluffy’ as a duvet as it does not contain as much fill. It does not require a cover and is designed to be a one piece item.

Important Comforter Pros

  • A comforter is often the more affordable choice versus a duvet.
  • A comforter is a ‘one-piece’ item that does not require a cover, making it, in the eyes of some, the easier choice for a hotel’s housekeeping staff.
  • A comforter is easy to place attractively over additional sheets and/or blankets, so they are great for those who want to create a layered hotel bedding look.

Possible Comforter Cons

  • A comforter is not as soft and ‘fluffy’ a duvet
  • A comforter needs to used with a top sheet to prolong its useful life.
  • A hotel comforter needs to be laundered far more often than a hotel duvet, around once a month versus once a season for a duvet, as the duvet is protected by a washable cover which a comforter is not.

Once you have considered all of this information, you will find that there are extensive options available for both hotel comforters and hotel duvets. Armed now with the basic knowledge you need you should now be able to make the best hotel bedding choice for your establishment – and your budget.

Choosing The Best Gym Towels For Your Hotel Gym

One of the things that travelers have almost come to expect they will be offered at any hotel is access to gym facilities. Even those who are traveling for pleasure, not business, don’t want to miss a week – or more – of workouts simply because they are far away from their local gym.

For those hotels and motels that do boast gym facilities, there is a lot to consider in order to provide the best possible guest experience. And while the big stuff is important – the machines, the instruction, things like that – so are the ‘little things’ that can make a big difference. One of the most important of those ‘little considerations’ is making sure that guests are provided with the best gym towel to make use of while they work out.

The Importance of a Great Gym Towel

If you stop and think about it, towels are an important part of going to the gym – any gym – in lots of different ways. Their obvious use to mop up the sweat that the average gym goer usually produces in abundance during the average workout, of for toweling off after that great post-workout shower.

But many gym goers also use gym towels for other purposes. They use them to wipe down the equipment they are using (sticky, wet and sweaty weights, for example, can spell real trouble) and some even incorporate their gym towel into their workouts. So not only does the average hotel gym need to provide the best gym towel for each guest but they need to provide quite a lot of them as well!

Gym Towels and a Healthy Workout Environment

The best gym towel can help a hotelier do something else that’s very important as well; provide a healthier environment for their guests to work out in. Even the best maintained of hotel gyms is, inevitably, a hotbed of germs. Given a great gym towel to keep on hand., most people will regularly wipe down their face and body as they work up a sweat, meaning that germs are less likely to reach their hands. As the hands are always the primary way bacteria spreads this helps create a healthier workout environment for everyone.

What Makes a Towel the Best Gym Towel?

Guests love to be greeted with a plentiful supply of soft, fluffy looking towels when they hit a hotel gym. But choosing the 
best gym towel calls for more than simply buying the ones that look nice. There is, in fact, more to choosing the right hotel gym towel than you think. Here are some of the most important things to keep in mind.

Towel Material

Gym towels and bath towels are not interchangeable, or they should not be anyway, and so the ‘guidelines’ you might follow for towel materials for use in the rest of your establishment are likely to be a little different.

When shopping for 
gym towels you’ll quickly find that you have several main options in terms of materials. Most people usually find, however, that 100% cotton, while a fairly standard choice, is still the best one. Cotton Terry, to be specific, tends to be best for the gym, as it is soft, durable and does not ‘shed’. The last thing a hot, sweaty gym goer wants is to end up covered in lint because their gym towel sheds. So 100% cotton really does tend to produce the best gym towels for sweat.

A high-quality cotton polyester blend is not quite as soft as 100% cotton, but they are more resilient and durable. In a high traffic gym, this is an important consideration, especially in terms of cost. One idea that some hoteliers find worked very well for them? Provide 100% cotton towels in the gym locker room and cotton polyester out in the gym itself.

But what of those other options? Microfiber has become a very ‘trendy’ choice over the last few years, and it does have its upsides as a gym towel. It’s durable, absorbs moisture well and is even good at trapping germs and dirt. As a gym towel choice, it may be a good option, especially if you can find the right price, but the fact that it is not quite as soft as a good quality 100% cotton towel may be a little off-putting for some gym goers.

There is a considerable buzz around bamboo towels as well at the moment. The claim is that they are as absorbent as cotton while also boasting natural antibacterial properties. For some hotel gyms, especially smaller ones, they may be a viable option but you should definitely do your homework and perhaps just buy a sample or two before ordering in bulk!

The Sweat Factor

A gym is a sweaty, sticky place and gym-goers are sweaty, sticky people. This means that the best gym towel needs to be the best gym towel for sweat! The best gym towels for sweat are those that can absorb moisture quickly and easily. This does not, however, mean that the best gym towels have to be as absorbent as a big bath towel. Look for a towel that offers good absorption without being too thick, as no gym goer wants to lug around a heavy towel as they move from machine to machine.

Sizing

As we just mentioned, a heavy towel does not make for a great gym towel and neither does one that is too big. A medium weight, medium sized – around 13" X 44" is often ideal – is often the best gym towel choice for general guest use, although you may want to consider offering a couple of different sizes so they can choose for themselves.

In the end, the best gym towel for your hotel gym will be a personal decision, one based on facility size and budget as well as towel quality, However, if you keep these tips in mind, and take your time when shopping for the best hotel gym towels, making that decision should be a lot easier.

Hotel Bedding Supplier Spotlight: Phoenix Down

One of the things hotel guests ‘judge’ a room on most is the quality of the night’s sleep they get. And while getting a great night’s sleep depends on a number of different factors one of the biggest is the comfort and quality of the bedding. It’s hard to get a good night’s sleep if the sheets are too scratchy or the blankets too thin – or thick – to provide comfort at the right temperature.

In looking for bedding that will provide their guests with the comfort they are looking for, many hoteliers turn to down and down alternative products such as down comforters, down pillows and more. And in seeking out these hotel bedding products they often turn to Phoenix Down, one of the leading manufacturers of down – and down alternative – hotel bedding products in the US.

What is Down Anyway?

Not everyone is quite sure what down really is. In a nutshell, down is the layer of fine feathers that lies beneath the tougher exterior feathers that make up the plumage of wildfowl such as ducks and geese. It is a natural thermal insulator and provides great padding, making it a wonderful choice for creating comfortable bedding, especially when it comes to comforters and pillows.

The down used by the Phoenix Down Corporation to create high-quality hotel bedding is sourced from birds who were primarily raised for meat. Once obtained the down is cleaned and sanitized to the highest standards and accessed for quality before finding its way into any of the company’s products.

What is Down Alternative?

Down alternative is what its name suggests, a synthetic alternative to natural down that is often suited for use by those with allergies to feathers – although high quality down is usually hypoallergenic – or who are looking for a slightly more affordable alternative. Phoenix Down alternative down products are crafted using a blown polyester fiber blend that mimics natural down very well.

The Importance of Fill Power

When shopping for down comforters, down pillows and other down products suitable for use as hotel bedding the term ‘fill power’ will crop up often. This is the standard by which all natural down bedding products – and most down alternative bedding products – are graded. The term refers to a measurement that is calculated by placing a sample of the down in a special test tube that measures the number of cubic inches it can fill.

The very finest down – which is extremely expensive and rather difficult to find – has a fill power of 750, with the lowest quality down ‘weighing in’ at 300. Phoenix Down products are crafted using down that ranges in fill power from nothing less than a 550 fill power, a standard that provides a high-quality product that is soft but durable at a reasonable price that better fits the hotel bedding budget the average hotelier has to work with.

The Advantages of Down Based Hotel Bedding

There are a number of advantages of choosing down bedding over standard synthetic hotel bedding, including all of the following:

Softness – Hotel guests are looking for bedding that is as comfortable – if not even more so – than the bedding they make use of at home. High quality down bedding, like that provided by Phoenix Down, provides that comfort, especially when it comes to hotel comforters and hotel pillows.

Warmth – High quality down comforters are created using high fill power down – 500+ – that helps ensure that guests stay warm no matter what time of year it is or how cold it is outside.

Thermal Regulation – Another advantage of down fill is that it is a great temperature regulator. The down offers great ‘breathability’ and wicks away moisture that can leave a sleeping guest feeling sweaty or sticky.

Longevity – With the proper regular care a down comforter can last for years, something that is not true of many standard comforters, which can often become ‘lumpy’ and uncomfortable after just a few months use in a hotel setting. The same is true of hotel pillows, with down, or down alternative pillows from Phoenix Down boosting a lifespan of up to ten times longer than the standard hotel pillow.

Product Spotlight: Phoenix Down Hotel Bedding

Now that you better understand what the advantages are of choosing down based hotel bedding you are no doubt wondering just what products Phoenix Down have to offer to the hotelier in search of great hotel bedding. Here is a look at some of their bestsellers:

Phoenix Down Down Duvets

Available in fill levels from 650 to 550 and in all bed sizes – Twin, Full, King and Queen – Phoenix Down duvets boast a 100% cotton cover and great longevity, as well as superior comfort and styling to suit almost any hotel room decor.

Phoenix Down Pillows

Phoenix Down provides superior hotel pillows in both down and down alternative versions that offer a high fill count, great comfort and superior longevity. They are also sold in multipacks at a significant discount, something that any budget-conscious hotelier can appreciate.

Phoenix Down Throw Pillow Forms 

A great looking bedding display is something that hoteliers also strive to provide, and just the right throw pillows can make that a task that is far easier to achieve. Crafted from both down and down alternative these throw pillow forms are attractive, long-lasting and offer great ROI.

Pima Versus Supima: What They Are and What You Need to Know

1888 Mills Supima Towels

The quality of the hotel
linens is always of the utmost importance. If
you take just a quick look at Yelp! Trip Advisor or other similar sites,
you’ll quickly see that it’s an area that guests mention regularly, sometimes in a positive, but more often, in a
negative way. “The sheets were scratchy,”
“the towels were flimsy,” and
similar comments are posted all too often.

This all means that
shopping for the best hotel linens is not always as simple as you might think.
You do want to provide quality, but not at a price that breaks the budget. And there seem to be so many options to choose from in
the first place!

When choosing hotel linens,
it’s likely that you’ll keep seeing two terms over and over again; Pima and
Supima, both used in reference to cotton products. But just what are these
things, and perhaps more importantly, which should
you choose? In a battle of ‘Pima vs. Supima’ who
wins? Here are some important facts and pointers to help you figure it
all out.

What is Pima Cotton

No doubt you’ve seen
pictures before of cotton fields boasting acres and acres of the fluffy white
buds that will one day become a fabric that has almost unlimited uses. What you
may not realize is that there are different types of cotton plant used to
create the cotton fabric we all know.

Pima cotton is one of the
extra long staple cottons (Egyptian is another well-known example of this
cotton type) and as such boasts properties that many other cotton varieties do
not. It originated in Peru but is
actually named for the Pima Indians who brought it to North America and
perfected its cultivation.

These days, in the US, pima
cotton is grown primarily in Arizona, California, Texas, and New Mexico, as it
is only in these states that the delicate balance of the right soil, the right
temperature and the right water levels needed for pima cotton to truly thrive
exist.

You may also be wondering
what extra-long staple cotton is. Extra-long staple cotton has individual
fibers within each fluffy cotton bud that measure at least one and
three-eighths of an inch in length. This means that pima cotton fibers are 50%
longer than standard cotton. Why should you care? Because when woven pima
cotton becomes a silk-like fabric that is softer, stronger and far longer
lasting. Facts which, if you are shopping for
hotel towels, hotel sheets or other hotel linens, are certainly
something to pay attention to. 

What is Supima Cotton? 

Pima. Supima. Sound very
similar don’t they? That’s because in many ways they are. Supima cotton is
different to though pima cotton, but only sort of. Allow us to explain.

Supima is not another
strain of cotton; it’s actually a brand
name. The brand belongs to The Supima Association, an industry body that
grades, regulates and markets the pima cotton offered for sale in the USA.

To be bestowed with the
Supima label a batch of pima cotton must meet some rather strict standards in
terms of thread length, cultivation procedures and its intended movement
through the supply chain. In order to be branded as Supima pima cotton must be exclusively grown and processed in the
USA.

In the most basic of terms,
Supima’s name speaks for itself. Supima = superior pima. What does this mean in
terms of product? It means that
hotel towels, hotel sheets and any other hotel linens a hotelier might consider purchasing that carry the
Supima label really are the best of the best.

Pima vs. Supima: Which is Right
for You?

Pima vs. Supima

Hotel linens crafted from
pima cotton are superior to most of the other options on the market. Supima is
top of the line. Both are great choices for the towels, sheets, pillowcases and
more that a hotelier needs to furnish a guest room. So which should you opt
for, if left with a choice between the two.

In reality, that choice may
simply boil down to budget and personal preference. Pima products are utilized
by some of the best hotels in the USA and beyond, and so it certainly meets
some very exacting standards. Supima is more expensive, but you are assured
that the cotton is of the highest possible quality, so if you are hoping to
create a truly five star ambience and experience for your guests, the extra
expense may very well be justified.

How to Wash & Dry Feather or Down Hotel Pillows (how to add the syndication link)

How to wash hotel feather pillows

Getting down and feather pillows to be fluffy as they
were when you bought them is an easy thing to do. Even after you use them for a
while, they fit inside any washing machine extremely easy, without the need to
use force. That’s especially important as you can cause damage to the machine
which could cost you hundreds, or even thousands, depending on how expensive it
is.

Besides the fact that synthetic pillows are pricey
nowadays, they are nowhere near down or feather ones when it comes to comfort
and durability. Many people are afraid of washing the synthetic pillows because
of the fact that it can get damaged in the process, which results in throwing
it away and buying another one. Gosse feathers
and
down feather pillows are much more comfortable and
will, in fact, last a lot longer, which why paying a little bit more at first
will save you money in the long run. Furthermore, you’ll always sleep on a
clean pillow, enjoying a beautiful scent of your choice.

Washing pillows can only be done properly if you completely rinse and
dry them given that they are both thick and dense.

You might have noticed that your pillows tend to turn
yellow, and the main reason for that is sweat. Even during the cold days, your
body gets very warm, hence the increase in temperature, which ultimately causes
you to sweat more. We sweat because the body needs to lower its temperature,
and specific medical conditions, menopause and pregnancy are associated with
increased body heat.

Natural oils, present particularly in the head area, can
be yet another reason for a pillow to turn yellow over time.

Feather Hotel Pillows

How to
Wash and Dry Feather or Down Pillows

If you ever asked yourself “How
do I wash a feather pillow?” It is extremely important that you
understand how crucial both processes are. Washing your pillow without drying
it should be avoided as it reduces the pillow’s quality. Here’s what you need
to know about it,

Quantity
– Never turn on the washing machine without putting at least two pillows inside
of it. You want to keep the spin cycle balanced.

Water
Temperature – Set the temperature to what you feel comfortable with, but be
aware that hot water might cause shrinkage.

Speed
– To drain as much moisture as possible from the pillows, set it to highest
speeds

Rinse
– Double down on the rinse process just to make sure that you removed all the
soap

Soap
– Use down or feather soaps without any
additives

There are the key steps to washing your pillows properly,
but you can always use non-chlorine bleach to whiten them up. On the other
hand, one thing you don’t want to use is fabric softener as it can reduce the
fluffiness.

When it comes to drying, these are the things to pay
attention to:

Temperature
– Just like you did while washing the pillows, set it to any temperature, but
low heat is recommended

Time
– Depending on how good your machine is, it might take several cycles before
they are completely dry

Odor
or Clumping – In order to prevent mold, you want to get your pillows 100% dry
before getting them out

Dry
Test – Press your pillows really hard in between the cycles, because they might
seem to be dry when you touch them softly, but chances are that it is still
damp on the inside

To freshen the pillows, you can always use dryer sheets,
but what’s even more helpful is using dryer balls. If you don’t have them, you
might use clean tennis balls as well to speed up the process.

We have described the best way to
clean feather pillows, but you can use this method for any other natural fill pillow as well.

Pacific Coast Hotel Pillows

Feather
Pillows VS Down Pillows

The ultimate down VS feather
pillow war needs to settle down once and for all. Unless you’re buying
exclusive and more expensive versions, which only contain one of the two
materials, you’ll most likely going to get a pillow that’s filled with both.
It’s best that you try them both and decide which one is more comfortable for
you, as it is not something that can be generalized.

Are duck feather and down pillows good? Absolutely. As we said at the beginning, deciding to
switch from even the best synthetic pillows to
feather or down pillows might cost you a little bit more, but they will last
for much longer.

Wash Your Pillows Regularly

Don’t be afraid, it doesn’t mean that you’ll have to do
it on a daily or weekly basis, but every three to six months would be ideal.
Never wait more than half a year before thoroughly washing and drying your
pillow, as it collects dander, body oils and dead skin cells.

If you do not have time to do it, you can always search
for “pillow cleaning near me” in order
to find someone who can do it for you. However, you can see how easy it is and
how cleaning feather pillows doesn’t take any
expertise to be done.

Alright, but what about hotel
pillows? You know how to care for feathers,
but do hoteliers have the same knowledge? You
can always check that, by taking off the pillow protector and judge by the
color and smell. If there are no stains, bad smells or punctures, their hygiene
is top notch. Every hotel guest should have the
habit of doing this, as clean pillowcases are not enough.

As we said, sweating is the number one reason why your
pillows turn yellow. That said, it goes without saying buying the best pillow protector for night sweats is a must. Keep
in mind that you’ll need to wash the case more often than the pillow, ranging from once a week to once a month at least.

How to Wash & Dry Feather or Down Hotel Pillows

How to wash hotel feather pillows

Getting down and feather pillows to be fluffy as they
were when you bought them is an easy thing to do. Even after you use them for a
while, they fit inside any washing machine extremely easy, without the need to
use force. That’s especially important as you can cause damage to the machine
which could cost you hundreds, or even thousands, depending on how expensive it
is.

Besides the fact that synthetic pillows are pricey
nowadays, they are nowhere near down or feather ones when it comes to comfort
and durability. Many people are afraid of washing the synthetic pillows because
of the fact that it can get damaged in the process, which results in throwing
it away and buying another one. Gosse feathers
and down feather pillows are much more comfortable and
will, in fact, last a lot longer, which why paying a little bit more at first
will save you money in the long run. Furthermore, you’ll always sleep on a
clean pillow, enjoying a beautiful scent of your choice.

Washing pillows can only be done properly if you completely rinse and
dry them given that they are both thick and dense.

You might have noticed that your pillows tend to turn
yellow, and the main reason for that is sweat. Even during the cold days, your
body gets very warm, hence the increase in temperature, which ultimately causes
you to sweat more. We sweat because the body needs to lower its temperature,
and specific medical conditions, menopause and pregnancy are associated with
increased body heat.

Natural oils, present particularly in the head area, can
be yet another reason for a pillow to turn yellow over time.

Feather Hotel Pillows

How to
Wash and Dry Feather or Down Pillows

If you ever asked yourself “How
do I wash a feather pillow?” It is extremely important that you
understand how crucial both processes are. Washing your pillow without drying
it should be avoided as it reduces the pillow’s quality. Here’s what you need
to know about it,

Quantity
– Never turn on the washing machine without putting at least two pillows inside
of it. You want to keep the spin cycle balanced.

Water
Temperature – Set the temperature to what you feel comfortable with, but be
aware that hot water might cause shrinkage.

Speed
– To drain as much moisture as possible from the pillows, set it to highest
speeds

Rinse
– Double down on the rinse process just to make sure that you removed all the
soap

Soap
– Use down or feather soaps without any
additives

There are the key steps to washing your pillows properly,
but you can always use non-chlorine bleach to whiten them up. On the other
hand, one thing you don’t want to use is fabric softener as it can reduce the
fluffiness.

When it comes to drying, these are the things to pay
attention to:

Temperature
– Just like you did while washing the pillows, set it to any temperature, but
low heat is recommended

Time
– Depending on how good your machine is, it might take several cycles before
they are completely dry

Odor
or Clumping – In order to prevent mold, you want to get your pillows 100% dry
before getting them out

Dry
Test – Press your pillows really hard in between the cycles, because they might
seem to be dry when you touch them softly, but chances are that it is still
damp on the inside

To freshen the pillows, you can always use dryer sheets,
but what’s even more helpful is using dryer balls. If you don’t have them, you
might use clean tennis balls as well to speed up the process.

We have described the best way to
clean feather pillows, but you can use this method for any other natural fill pillow as well.

Pacific Coast Hotel Pillows

Feather
Pillows VS Down Pillows

The ultimate down VS feather
pillow war needs to settle down once and for all. Unless you’re buying
exclusive and more expensive versions, which only contain one of the two
materials, you’ll most likely going to get a pillow that’s filled with both.
It’s best that you try them both and decide which one is more comfortable for
you, as it is not something that can be generalized.

Are duck feather and down pillows good? Absolutely. As we said at the beginning, deciding to
switch from even the best synthetic pillows to
feather or down pillows might cost you a little bit more, but they will last
for much longer.

Wash Your Pillows Regularly

Don’t be afraid, it doesn’t mean that you’ll have to do
it on a daily or weekly basis, but every three to six months would be ideal.
Never wait more than half a year before thoroughly washing and drying your
pillow, as it collects dander, body oils and dead skin cells.

If you do not have time to do it, you can always search
for “pillow cleaning near me” in order
to find someone who can do it for you. However, you can see how easy it is and
how cleaning feather pillows doesn’t take any
expertise to be done.

Alright, but what about hotel
pillows? You know how to care for feathers,
but do hoteliers have the same knowledge? You
can always check that, by taking off the pillow protector and judge by the
color and smell. If there are no stains, bad smells or punctures, their hygiene
is top notch. Every hotel guest should have the
habit of doing this, as clean pillowcases are not enough.

As we said, sweating is the number one reason why your
pillows turn yellow. That said, it goes without saying buying the best pillow protector for night sweats is a must. Keep
in mind that you’ll need to wash the case more often than the pillow, ranging from once a week to once a month at least.

Down Pillows for You – Relish Five-Star Hotel Suite Sleep Every Night

I open my eyes, smiling in the crimson tint illuminating room over my
soft white duvet cover. I feel like I just pieced together a puzzle. But, what puzzle? If I could only remember what it was. 

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I dream
vividly, and other times it’s vague. Sometimes I remember them as if
they were real and other times I’m left scratching my head. Today it was the latter. I usually don’t wake up smiling, quite the opposite and so I decided to figure
this dream out. As I roll over and sink into the soft memory foam mattress, I feel
my head cradled in support as the pillow fills. 

“This
is a fantastic hotel pillow” I think as I drift back into the abstract
oblivion. What was the puzzle…the 

puzzle, the puzzle…? What was the coffee
grounds, what was the coffee grounds…being poured on my computer? I can’t stop
them from being poured onto the computer. Holding myself
back from total TKO on the bed, I wake up and I open my eyes again. 

“Coffee, Computer, Internet,” I mutter to myself rising out of bed trying to decipher. Ok, coffee gives you energy and helps you focus, the computer
is where I work, the internet where I
communicate. Ok, I need to focus on my
communication at work…Oh yes, that’s it.
I need to blog more. I’ve fallen behind, and I need to write. I should right about how to buy this hotel pillow

Why Illustrations Over Photography

Illustrations are a much better
way to describe the making of the Pacific
Coast
®premium pillows. Choosing a pillow online can be quite tricky as
you can’t touch it, feel it or determine the level of softness for your comfort.
The professionals at Pacific Coast® ensure that you get
a well-deserved sleeping time after a hectic day at work. That’s exactly why we
prioritize the inner structure of the pillow through illustrations to help you
choose the best pillows.

Each of our pillows has its tale which
a photograph cannot describe it to you. The construction process requires your
undivided attention for you to have an idea about it. Having a basic
understanding of the construction process will help you decide which pillow to
buy for yourself.

When looking for a suitable down
pillow, every individual has their preferences. A common choice is a soft and a
rectangular shaped pillow with the perfect support for the head. The pillow
collection consists of uniquely designed inner-chamber pillows. These come in
different shapes and styles explicitly made to suit your comfort demands. All
the pillows come with squashy and supportive feathers, which add up to the
comfort levels. The quantity of feathers varies in each pillow depending upon
the firmness, softness and the support requirements of an individual.

Pacific Coast® Bedding has
a vast experience of over 125 years in producing original designs in bedding
accessories. Here are a few pillow types with their illustrations to help you
choose your perfect pillow:-

Single Inner Chamber

With more fluffy down and a firm inner
core, this type is perfect for head support. If you are looking for an all down
feature, this pillow is the ideal choice for you. The internal chamber keeps
the feather filling in place making up comfortable neck support as well. The Grand
Embrace ®– Pillow is an example of a pillow with
one inner chamber.

Dual Inner Chamber

This type comes with two inner chambers with a
typical design. The presence of two chambers further adds to the neck and head
support making it a worthy choice for you. Different layers of the feathers
border the chambers to add to the firmness and softness of the pillow. The
filling of the pillow is either of down or feathers depending upon your
preferences. A feather filling is more suitable for a firm pillow while a down
filling accommodates a softer pillow. Some of the pillows with dual inner
chambers include the Slumber Core ® -All down Pillow and the Slumber
Core
® Pillow.

Triple Inner Chamber

The pillow type consists of three
chambers of feathers. The chambers keep the structure compact and maintain the
softness of the pillow with ease. Two walls keep the three chambers in place
for your maximum comfort especially when you move from side to side. Some
examples of such pillow type are Tria® All down Pillow and the Side-by-Side
Firm Pillow.

The Pillow in a Pillow

With a pillow inside a pillow
filled with the highest quality feathers, the down makes up a worthy bedroom
addition. Apart from the feathers, the design also supports the structure of
the pillow. You can adjust the supporting levels by increasing or decreasing
the quantity of feathers in the inner pillow. The structure of this type
comprises a down filled pillow with a feather filled pillow. Both of these are
adjustable for a firm support for your head and neck. Some examples include
Hotel Touch of Down, Double DownAround® Soft, Medium, Firm, Down Around® and AllerRest®.

Side-By-Side Inner Pillow

The type contains an inner pillow
with a baffle in the middle that makes up the side by side chambers. The
chambers are there to ensure that the structure is adjustable to your movements
especially while you are sleeping. The baffle wall keeps the filling in a
position to avoid the unnecessary shift of the feathers. The pillow is mostly
layered by down to provide the required fluffiness for your support. The Side By
Side® Pillow is an example of the special design.

Baffle Box Inner Pillow

If you are looking for
long-lasting firmness in a pillow, the baffle box inner design is the perfect
choice for you. The presence of the baffles in the internal structure ensures
an evenly spread filling. The distribution is in form of boxes formed by
baffles for maximum support for your head. A down layer similar to other pillow
designs then covers the internal structure adding to the comfort levels. The StayLoft™ Pillows are prime examples
of the baffle box inner design.

Nook Inner Chamber

Like other designs, the Nook inner
chamber construction also consists of a down layer. The inner chamber has a
hollow space in the middle which is responsible for your neck and head support.
If you are a back sleeper, the Nook™ Pillow is a good
choice for you in this construction type.

The Traditional Mix Design

This type does not consist of an
internal chamber. The filling can comprise of down, feathers or even a mix of
both in a single piece. A redeeming quality about this type is that it can
adjust to any of your sleeping positions with no difficulty. The type also
allows you to decide the down and feather quantity so you can determine the
harness and the fluffiness of the pillow. For instance, a feather pillow when
compared to a down pillow will be more firm and less soft. There are numerous options for you to choose
from in this category. Some of these include the Resilla Pillow, Prestige
Pillows, and the Luxury down Pillows.

The pillow collection comes up
with some classic style and designs which can give your bed a unique look. You
should look for something which provides you the optimum level of comfort. A
soft pillow with the perfect neck and head support makes up an undisturbed good
night’s sleep.

The Pacific Coast® Pillows come up with a
30 nigh comfort guarantee which indicates the quality of the production. If you
are having trouble finding your perfect pillow, give this guide a read and you
will find your pillow match.

The Secrets for Taking Care of Your Luxury Bedding

A cozy looking bed with fresh and cloudy sheets makes up
quite an imagination. After a grueling day at the office, the first thing that
comes up to your mind is your bed. A
luxury setting like this was possible when your bedding accessories were fresh
and new. But now, they might have lost their welcoming charm which guaranteed a
relaxed sleeping time. This is because the softness and the comfort levels can
decrease over time with the increased amount of use.

This might enable you to question the quality of your
bedding products. That’s quite a common misconception regarding most of the
comforters and the pillows. A common way to maintain the fluffiness of your
pillows and comforters is to wash them on a regular basis. This can take up a
lot of time and effort, which can seem like a daunting task for many. The wash
process usually depends on the size of these accessories. For instance, if you
own a king size comforter, it can take up a full day before you are done with
its cleaning.

The process further requires additional rinsing cycles along
to get rid of the moisture that is absorbed by the down pillow. A low heat
setting is also needed in your washer to ensure a successful drying process.
The complete procedure eats up a quarter of your day, which is something you
don’t want to happen. If you attempt to
make changes in the working of the process, your down pillows might ruin very
quickly. This might result in you looking for new luxury bedding quite sooner
than you expected.

What to Do

You can easily avoid such problems if you know the secrets
of taking care of your luxury bedding accessories. Here are a few of them for
you to know about:

  • -Get a new zip cover made up of cotton. You will
    have to shrink the cover to reduce its size.
    This will increase the plumpness of your pillow making it comfier enough
    to use.
  • -You will need to assemble a clean tennis ball, a
    washcloth and your pillows in your washer’s dryer at once. The tennis ball is
    there to fluff up your pillow by making use of the air flow inside. This goes
    on for about 45-60 minutes to remove any loose down in the down pillow.
  • -In case of down comforters, the same process
    takes place with the exemption of a tennis ball.

How to Know Your Pillow’s Bathing Time?

You can easily get to know the washing time for your down
pillows and comforters. Here are a few common signs for you to find out:-

  • -A flat shaped and dull comforter even when
    shaken.
  • -A pillow lacking its usual fluff
  • -An increased amount of down leaking from the
    corners of your pillows. It is in your hair, clothes, bed sheets and other
    surrounding places.

If you have any further queries regarding your bedding
accessories, feel free to contact
Pacific Coast® bedding for the best tips.

An Easy Guide to Help You Wash Your Pillows

Before washing your feather or
down pillows, a lot of questions might arise in your mind. There are
speculations that the washed pillows might lose their fluffiness, smoothness
and the comfort they provide. This might be the case with the artificial
pillows, but not with down or feather filled pillows. Cleaning of down and
feather pillows as compared to synthetic pillows is quite an easy process.

One of the best qualities about
such pillows is that they can fit in with any washing machine. They will remain
soft and smooth with the same appearance that includes their shape and
structure as well. Pacific
Coast® bedding
mainly prioritizes the use of natural filling materials in
their collection of pillows. These materials provide a lot of benefits for
their users which include easy maintenance as well.

Washing an artificial pillow can
be a risk due to a number of reasons. Many individuals have reverted to not
washing their pillows as they get uneven and out of shape. What this means is
that keep sleeping on dirty pillows for quite a while until they think it’s
time to buy a new one. On the other
hand, if you buy one of the goose-down pillows, you will not have to worry at
all. Such pillows tend to be long lasting if washed on a regular basis. You
also might need to dry them properly mainly to maintain their width and
compactness.

Why Do Pillows Get Yellow?

A stained pillow is something
that might ruin your sleeping mood. There are quite a few things that can cause
your pillows to turn yellow. Head sweating is one of the common reasons that
stain your pillows depending upon how much you sweat while sleeping. Natural
body oils, pregnancy, and menopause are some of the other common causes that
also ruin the appearance of your pillows. A common drooling habit while
sleeping is also responsible for yellowing of your bedding accessories.

How to Wash Goose down Or Feather Pillows?

To
avoid yellow or dirty pillows, it is important you keep your pillows fresh and
clean. Here are a few steps to help you out:-

  • Use a gentle soap. Soap
    without any additional chemicals is something you should look for.
  • Wash the pillow thoroughly.
    You should also make use of an additional rinse cycle to make sure that all the
    soap washes away.
  • Make use of a suitable water
    temperature. You can use hot, warm or cold water depending upon the fabric
    type. Most of the fabrics used tend to shrink if washed with hot or warm water.
    In such cases, cold water is a much better choice.
  • When using a washing machine,
    it is better to wash two pillows at a time. This will ensure a smooth rinsing
    process.
  • Put your washer on the
    fastest spin speed. This is to make sure that little or no moisture remains.
  • Avoid using a fabric
    softener. It can reduce the amount of fluffiness in your goose down or feather
    pillows.
  • You can also consider using non-chlorine
    bleach for getting rid of the yellow stains.

The Drying Process

After giving your pillows a
much-needed bath, now is the time to dry them carefully. Here are a few tips to
help you make the process easier:-

  • Keep a regular check on your pillows after each
    drying cycle. The pillows can still be damp and might need additional cycles to
    dry out the moisture completely.
  • It is important that you use the most suitable
    drying temperature for your pillows. You should avoid warm temperatures which
    can cause shrinkage.
  • The drying process requires patience. It can
    take several turns from the dryer to complete the process as each machine has a
    different drying time.
  • To determine the level of dampness, you should
    check for clump and scents which can cause mold. It is essential to repeat the
    drying cycle when such problems occur.

When to Wash Your Pillows?

Most of the experts recommend a
six month period washing time for your pillows. The cleaning process also
occurs earlier than the fixed period depending upon your use. Your sweat,
saliva, body oils and the skin cells easily transfer to your pillows. Such
natural causes might require your attention before the fixed six month time.
Pillowcases are one way to prevent your pillows from getting dirty. However,
you still might need to wash the pillows but not that often.

How to Fluff Up Your Pillows Repeatedly While
Washing?

Compression is a common issue with most of the
pillow types especially when washing. This requires you t ore-fluff your
pillows regularly to maintain their shape and softness. Here are a few steps to help you out:-

  • The procedure takes place for about 15-20
    minutes with a low heat setting applied to the washer.
  • A wet washcloth is a major requirement for the
    process.
  • A fabric softener is most suitable to maintain
    the quality of the fabric and the freshness levels.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Pillow Protectors

Pillows can easily get dirty due
to a number of reasons as mentioned before. A pillow protector is something you
can use to maintain the cleanliness of your pillows for a longer time. The
benefits of pillow covers easily outweigh their disadvantages. For instance,
the added layer is a customer favorite as it provides the necessary protection
from numerous substances. A slight disadvantage of the extra layer is that it
reduces the bendiness of your pillow. A pillow with a pillow cover can lack the
flexibility that most of the individuals look for. Each person has his or her
comfort demands. To know if a pillow protector suits you, you will have to try
it on for yourself.

Washing of down or feathery
pillows is quite simple if you follow the listed steps. You should know that
clean pillows have a lot of benefits. They have a longer life, and with regular
cleaning, they can last for about ten years.

When To Replace Your Pillows

It is not uncommon to find yourself feeling restless while
trying to sleep. Such discomfort is often a result of improper support to your
neck and head. You should start looking for a new pillow if you experience this
discomfort a lot. A good quality pillow has a life that ranges between one and
10 years depending on the material used and might need replacing in the
specified time.

Here are a few pointers for you to know when you need to
replace your pillow:-

Material’s Quality

The materials used are vital in determining the life
expectancy of your pillows. Here are three common materials used for making
pillows:

  • Artificial- the best way to know when the
    synthetic material of your pillow needs replacing is to first use it for a year
    or two. The quality and how you use the
    pillow can be the major contributing factors.
  • Down and Feather- one of the best things about this
    type is that you can clean them over time to make them look like new. Once the
    feathers stop plumping up, it is time to look for a replacement.
  • Foam- it can be quite tricky to know when to
    replace a foam pillow. In this case, the quality of the foam and the frequency
    of use can play a significant role. As you increase your use, the foam starts
    to get harder. If it gets too hard and stops providing the same level of
    comfort, it is time to replace it.

A Flat And Hard Pillow

Another easy way to know when to replace your pillow is by
checking the evenness and the hardness of your pillow. Here are some material
guidelines for your help:

  • Down and Feather- in this type, the first step
    to take is to place your pillow on a hard surface. After that, fold in as many
    halves as you can to squeeze out all the air present inside. The next step
    involves checking if the pillow easily returns to its original shape. If the
    pillow doesn’t meet these requirements, it is a clear sign that you will have
    to replace your pillow.
  • Synthetic- in case of a synthetic pillow, the
    first step to take is to fold the pillow as done in the case of down and
    feather pillows. Then you will have to place a smaller weight consisting of
    about 10oz on the folded pillow. This has to be done before releasing the
    folded pillow. If the pillow doesn’t need replacing, it will counter the weight
    by throwing it away and will return to its original position. If the pillow has
    run out of its life, it will remain folded.

It is important that you clean your pillows
properly by using different pillow protectors and covers. A proper maintenance
procedure will ensure that your pillows last longer. If in case you are looking
for the best replacements, Pacific Coast has a lot of variety in its pillow
section
for you to choose from.

Coast® Bedding
introduces a wide range of pillow
protectors. Equipped with hidden zipped covers, these protect your pillows from
stains, fluids and other things, such as body oils, which might leave a

fabric guaranteeing a good night’s sleep.

Spotless Pillows

Our pillow protectors sport multiple layers that offer
sufficient protection from body oils, which can easily pass through the covers
and leave a permanent mark on your pillows. Of course, clean pillows are a much
better sight than dirty pillows; another reason why you should get a pillow
protector.

No Bugs!

Bed bugs are something you would undoubtedly like to avoid
when sleeping. The protectors ensure that there is a low probability of bugs
entering your pillows. Pest infestation can lead to a lot of problems such as
common skin allergies and even asthma which might lead to you throwing away
your precious pillows. You can avoid that, thanks to our collection of pillow
protectors which are reliable enough for you to sleep without any worries.

knowing that there are no mites present to create problems for you.

motel or a guesthouse, you can encounter bed bugs and other things which you
might not expect at all. It is better not to take a risk, and the better option

ways if you a pillow protector by your side.

Pillow Covers and Pillow Cases

Relaxing Pillowcases for a Peaceful Sleeping Time

Your ideal pillowcases should be soft and comfortable for
your head. After going through the different Pacific
Coast® bedding accessories
such as linens and
pillows, it is time you start looking for pillow covers.
Pillow covers are instrumental in protecting your pillows from dust, dirt, bugs
and dust mites. There is a wide range of covers available in different sizes
and colors, which can easily merge in with your bedroom’s d├ęcor.

The Elegant Capture Top Pillow Cases

A pillow covered with a 500-thread count textile made
up of 100% cotton sateen is the perfect representation of the optimum comfort
and luxury you can find in a pillow. You can get these pillows on the Pacific
Coast® Capture Top® Pillowcases, which will
give you the same magnificent feeling you get in our bedding and linen
collections.

There are numerous designs and styles available for
your convenience with about six colors to choose from. The colors match up with
the ones present in the Pacific Coast® Best Fit®sheets
collection.

The openings present in the pillowcases ensure that you can easily
tuck in your pillows for getting a more polished look for your bedding
accessories.

Protectors and Covers

Keeping your pillow clean can be quite difficult. Body oils,
fluids, and usual stains can quickly ruin the appearance of your pillows. To
deal with such issues, you should consider giving our special pillow protectors
a shot.

The inclusion of the 305 thread count cotton Barrier Weave® down-proof cloth mixes
perfectly with your pillow giving you an added feeling of comfort- which is a
symbol of all of the Pacific Coast® products. Addition of such
fabric is vital for pillow protection keeping it nice and tidy for longer
periods.

The Gusset Pillow Cover

Gusset pillow covers are defined by style and elegance,
which makes them a worthy addition to your bedding accessories. Finding a
gusset pillow cover of your preference can be quite difficult due to different
material and size fit requirements for your pillows. Our special collection of
gusset pillow covers is made up of 300 thread count equipped with 100% pure
cotton which contributes to its coziness.

The gusset line is also made up of our unique Barrier
Weave® down-proof fabric. This fabric keeps your pillow clean
and tidy for a long time as compared to the other pillow covers.

The Big Cozy® Pillow
Cover

Consisting of 230-thread count, made up of 100% cotton, this
pillow protector does not disappoint at all. Our trademark Weave® down-proof
textile adds to its reliability and quality making it a worthy addition for
your bedroom. The hidden zipper is also a smart feature to keep the beautiful
looks of the cover unblemished. The cover matches with the Pacific Coast® The
Big Cozy® pillow.

The Allerrest® Pillow Cover

Waking up and finding out that you are a probable
victim of morning allergies is not a good feeling at all. Allergens such as
dust mites can cause such allergies, and they live in your bedding accessories
like your pillows. Once you get the Pacific Coast®AllerRest® pillow
protectors, you will easily be able to deal with such bedding issues.

The collection consists of a 300 count thread fabric
made up of 100% cotton which has the primary purpose of protecting your pillows
from different allergens. The protection barrier does not eliminate the comfort
factor and smoothness brought on by the pillow protector which is something you
should consider having in your bedroom.

If protecting your pillows is the priority, the Pacific
Coast® is all that you need. Our pillow covers last longer than
other covers available in the market. There might be cheaper options for you to
try on but they cannot provide the same level of protection and quality that
you demand, and we provide. Give us a try and get ready to experience the best
bedding products for your house.

sleeper the best support with their pillows. Available in three different
firmness levels; soft, medium-firm and firm, their pillows cater to different
needs.

firm pillows. Conversely, the medium-firmness pillow is suitable for sleepers
who toss and turn in bed. These pillows work perfectly, regardless of the
position you sleep in. As for the highlight, the softest pillows are a prime
standard for people who like to sleep on their stomachs.

They’re Allergy Free

A significant reason why many people prefer to buy synthetic
material-based pillows is due to the fear of having an allergic reaction to
natural materials like feathers and down. However, you can say goodbye to
worrying about allergies to unhygienic materials and dust because Pacific
Coast® pillows are not stuffed until the feathers and down go through a strict
cleaning process.

Both down and feathers are washed for a total of 8 times and
dried each time before repeating a washing cycle. The Hyperclean® process is
critical in making sure that no customers have to deal with any harmful
allergens.

After this cleaning regimen is complete, the material is
enclosed within a Barrier Weave® wrap made from fabric, 100% cotton. With this
protective layer, you can rest assured that all the feathers will stay in place
so you can sleep without worries.

Matchless Durability

No brand comes close to competing with Pacific Coast®’s
featherbedding, whether the category is comfort or longevity. Their warm and
fluffy featherbedding has a thread count that’s no less than 230 and is covered
with a layer of 100% cotton so you can rest easy without irritation from
synthetic substances.

Comprising the best quality of feathers, Pacific Coast®
pillows can stay in great shape, just as how you bought them, for years after
you originally purchased them. Many of their loyal customers have reported that
despite years of usage and frequent washes, feather pillows stay the same,
making them a great investment.

Hotel Pillows

Many travelers describe staying in a hotel unlike any other.
While some may comment on the pleasant ambiance, delicious food, and exceptional
room service, one thing that everyone would agree on is that the bedding is
outstanding and offers an entirely new sleeping experience.

If you’ve felt something similar, it’s likely because of a
Pacific Coast® hotel pillow. Well, now it’s time to have the same hotel-like
comfort at home with their advanced pillows. These unique hotel pillows
comprise of Hyperclean®-processed feathers and ensconced in luxurious cotton
fabric that will keep you feeling relaxed.

distinct composition that consists of many pillows within a single pillow.

back, numerous hotels across the US use these pillows.

Hotel Symmetry® Pillow

with a new design theory, which the pillow resulted as an equal mixture of both
Hyperclean® feathers and Resilia® Feathers. This medium-support pillow is ideal
for users who prefer sleeping in more than one position.
