As stated on my previous post about washing buckwheat pillows, you don’t really need to wash the buckwheat hulls. However, for those who wants to wash them, I found this video that shows the best way to wash your hulls.
Here are some things you will need before you start:
1. 2 Basins (for washing the hulls in and for draining water)
3. Towels (for drying the hulls)
Here are the quick steps to washing your buckwheat hulls.
- Fill one of the basin with lukewarm water (make sure it won’t spill once you put in the hulls)
- Dump your buckwheat hulls into the water and stir the hulls around to take off the dust(no need for soap)
- Drain the water out by using the sieve and the other basin
- Lay down the towels and lay out the hulls on the towels
- Spread the buckwheat hulls thinly
- Leave the hulls to dry for a day or two
Here is the video, if you want to watch it step-by-step.
