Construction of a Makura Buckwheat Pillow

Caring for Your Makura Buckwheat Pillow
The Makura Buckwheat Pillow should not be placed in the microwave. There is one case of a person using the microwave to heat his buckwheat bed pillow and it overheated causing a fire.
Do not get the buckwheat hulls wet, they will not dry. You can machine wash the removable bedding pillowcase. If the inner lining needs cleaning, unzip the case and remove the buckwheat hulls to a bucket or trash bag. Wash and dry the liner. Make sure it is completely dry before adding the hulls back to the bed pillow.
