THERE’S nothing worse than a lumpy pillow that has completely lost its shape.
After all, after a long day, no-one wants to rest their head on a thin, uneven pillow.
But thanks to a simple but clever hack, your pillows will instantly be refreshed and you won't need to splash out and buy a new one.
A lumpy pillow can be caused by many different things – pillow stuffing can collect dirt, debris and moisture which can cause the innards of the pillow to clump together.
Down and feather pillows can also get lumpy from sweat and moisture if they’re used over a long period of time.
Shaking and fluffing down pillows each morning can help air flow between the feathers, keeping them soft and fluffy.

Martin advised: “When making your bed feel like a five-star hotel, you should also fluff your pillows daily.
“To do this, you just need to pick it up and hold the left and right sides of the pillow and compress and decompress.
“However, if you have a lumpy pillow, there’s another hack.
“Simply place it in the dryer with a tennis ball or two inside a clean sock.
“Turn the dryer on to the lowest setting possible and turn it on for 30 minutes.
“The tennis balls should beat the lumps out of the pillow, and the sock will prevent the dye of the tennis ball from appearing on your pillows.”
