Lewis here, Dream HQ’s bed and snooze guru! Body pillows, love ’em or just want to hide ’em? Either way, I’ve got the quirky tricks up my sleeves. Let’s break it down into pillow hiding, pillowcase folding, and pillow defending! And remember, mate, it’s all in good fun.

Pillow Hiding

Containers & Blankets

  • Double Container Technique: Grab two non-clear containers.
  • Pillow Placement: In goes the pillow.
  • Blanket Camouflage: Top with blankets so the pillow’s out of sight.
  • Container Close-Up: Encase in the second container.

Voila! Hidden like a pro.

Did you know? During the Middle Ages in Europe, pillows were deemed a luxury item and were banned. Only pregnant women were exempt from this rule under King Henry VIII's reign.

Pillowcase Tactics

  • Remove & Fold: Take off the pillowcase and fold it neatly.
  • Stash Away: Put it somewhere unseen.

Creative Explanation

Got caught? Worry not! Just explain it’s a prop or a gift for a friend. Maybe it’s your secret to dealing with snoring, or maybe it’s your remedy for lower back pain. Now, ain’t that clever?

Pillow Defending

Worried about your hidden pillow getting grubby? Fret not!

  • Zippered Pillow Protector: Keeps it clean.
  • Ease of Use: Easy to zip on and off.

And remember, you might want to check if your body pillows can be washed.
