Carlson's Pillow Cleaning Service of Willmar will be at Kimball Legion Post 261 from 7 a.m.-noon Thursday, June 19, cleaning, deodorizing, sanitizing and fluffing pillows. Crushed foam pillows can be cleaned and polyester pillows can be recovered. New ticking of your choice and on-the-spot cleaning - returned the same day. Custom-made new pillows and down comforters will also be for sale. Sponsor: Auxiliary Unit 261. The facts: A good goose feather pillow (considered the Cadillac of pillows) given proper care, should last anywhere between 60-100 years, and still be in good usable condition. Every time a pillow is washed or steamed cleaned, feathers lose between 10-15 years of their usefulness. A feather depends on the oil in it for its life and softness and washing or steam cleaning removes oil from them, shortening their usable life. Carlson's Pillow Cleaning Service has a machine that will clean, disinfect and deodorize the feathers without removing any of their oil (your feathers are NOT mixed with any other customer feathers) and you receive all of your own feathers back, with no feathers lost. Groups interested in details for sponsoring this service can call Carlson's Pillow Service at (320) 212-5811 or (320) 235-8422.
