1. Don’t wash them TOO often
Wash them as necessary to keep the color durable. A good rule may be every 4-6 months, unless they become very dirty. Are they a bit smelly? Air it out or use fabric freshener (i.e. febreze) on it first!

2. Shower before sleep on the bed.
Some people shower once a day in the morning, some in the evening, some twice a day. For personal hygiene, it is recommended to take showering once a day in the evening. It keeps the pillow from getting sweaty or smelly, and also reduces the dirt it gets on it.

3. Keep animals away from it.
We all love pets but they can also do harm to your beloved dakimakura. If you do have a pet, do keep them away from it as for example cats may want to scratch and damage the covers.

4. Trim (and file) your nails!
This is common sense and everyone should do it anyway. Some people don’t, or they forget. Well-kept nails prevent scratching and tearing of fabric (and self) in sleep.

5. Keep it off the floor.
Your floor may appear to be clean, but it is still a factor in adding dirt to the pillow. Avoid if possible.
