Care Instructions for Feather Pillows

Bed pillows that are filled with feathers offer a soft place to rest your head. For this reason, many
people prefer to sleep on feather pillows. In order to keep these pillows soft, it is necessary to wash
them properly.

It is possible to wash your feather pillows in your washing machine. Remove the case from the pillows
and check for any small tears in the pillow fabric. If you detect any rips, be sure to mend the holes
before you place the pillow into the washing machine. This will prevent the loss of feathers from the
pillow during the washing cycle. You can use either a needle and thread, or fabric tape to mend any
holes you might find.

Washing machines can become unbalanced if a load becomes heavy on one side of the drum. An
unbalanced machine will not wash your items properly and can potentially damage your washer. It's
important to place your feather pillows properly into your machine. Put one pillow on either side of the
drum. If you have a few towels that also need to be washed, placed them in with the pillows. Set the
cycle to cold water. Pour a small amount of laundry detergent over the items in the washer. Turn the
setting to gentle and start the cycle. When the cycle finishes, repeat the rinse portion to make sure that
there is no detergent left on the pillows.

Remove your pillows from the washing machine and shake them gently to fluff the filling. Place your
pillows into the dryer along with a tennis ball. The tennis ball will keep the feathers from clumping
inside your pillow. Set the dryer on a medium setting. After fifteen minutes, remove the pillows and
fluff them again. Continue the process until the pillows are dry.

Adjustable Split King Beds: 2 Twin Extra-Long Size Beds Combined

On the surface, the answer to "What is a split king mattress?" may seem quite simple -- but there are several different types of split king beds to choose from. No matter what your budget or your particular circumstances, there is a split king that will suit you just perfectly. Why Are Split Kings Made?   A split king is made as a solution for comfortable sleeping for a couple. The bed is divided into two sections so that each person has their own customized side of the bed. This would allow for one person to have a firm mattress while the other person has a soft one, or for one person to have an electric blanket while the other one can sleep blissfully in the chilly night air that they prefer. Sometimes a split king is made for people with medical issues so that the person needing specific medical bedding -- like a bed that sits up and reclines automatically for example -- can have it on their own side but not on the side of the person who is not in need

History of The College Dorm Room

For centuries now, the college experience has long been associated with living in dormitories. From the first university in the United States the modern colleges and universities of today, students have had the opportunity and experience of living with one another at a pivotal time in their lives. All students in dorms are relatively young, typically between 18 and 23 years old, and all of them have a goal of getting a degree in mind. It's an experience that defines those first moments in an adult life, and that helps students learn the importance of responsibility, the benefit of independence and the joys of student camaraderie. However, while the general experience has remained the same, the dorms themselves have changed a lot over the years. From the archaic and cold buildings that were built hundreds of years ago to the modern dorms of today that more closely resemble resorts, the style and feel of college dorms has continued to change over time.
