Over time, throw pillows need to be cleaned to keep them smelling fresh. But many pillowcases or covers aren't machine-washable. And even if they are, you risk the cases shrinking or losing their "new" look if they go through a wash and dry. To deodorize your pillows, try this simple hack instead: Spray them with white vinegar and water. Just fill a spray bottle with a mixture of half white vinegar and half water (tap water is fine if you plan on using it right away, otherwise use distilled). Then spray all over the pillow. As the slightly damp pillow dries, the white vinegar will kill odor-causing bacteria.
