More than one poster on the oddly named Top Tips for Girls site points out that tennis balls, a general agent of dryer improvement, can get results. Specifically, throwing the pillow in alone with the tennis balls can beat the heck out of that pillow and force out some of the dents and creases your not-so-light head have worn into it. Depending on your pillow, there’s a chance it might backfire, but as you’re probably on your way toward buying a whole new pillow, it’s not a bad one-more-try strategy.
