Do you have a Snoogle? I bought a Snoogle pregnancy pillow during my second pregnancy, and I have never looked back. I use it when I’m pregnant and when I’m not pregnant. The kids sleep with it sometimes as it makes a toddler size nest. It props me up when I’m feeding newborns or reading in bed at night. It has earned its keep!
Imagine my disappointment when it was ruined by a run in with a leaky diaper! The first thing I did was check the washing instructions, and I found that the Snoogle was not machine washable. I was distraught, but I soon decided to be courageous and give the washing machine a try. (It wasn’t a hard decision since I either had to throw it away or put it in the washer.)
Just in case you are in a similar situation, I thought I’d share what I did.
I decided to take it to the laundromat since those machines can handle a lumpy pillow, and I wasn’t sure it would fit into the small coin operated machines in our apartment building. I washed the Snoogle in a small machine by itself on the gentlest cycle available. Then I dried it by itself on air dry for about an hour. It came out slightly damp, so I probably should have left it on for longer, but it dried out fine on its own and smelled like a Tide cloud.
You should only wash your Snoogle if you absolutely must and understand that you are taking a risk. The Snoogle isn’t supposed to be washed or dried in machines. It worked okay for me this one time, but that doesn’t mean it always will!
