Our competitors offer a bulky, one-piece cloth therapeutic pillow that has an uneven porous fabric surface. These pillows require machine-washing when they become wet or are exposed to contaminants. During this time, the service and recovery process are interrupted unless backup pillows are offered. 

Our EZ-Clean™ Sanitary Solution keeps our supportive pillows dry and makes them easy to clean and wash. Cleaned onsite easily at a medical facility or at home,  our heart pillows can continue their service without any interruption. Our pillow covers are removable. For routine sanitation or complete sterilization, you can hand wash the cover and hang it to dry. In a large facility, the covers can be washed up to 20 pieces a time and dried on low heat to kill bacteria. Our covers can stay intact over 15 washes or more. Competitor pillows, however, are a bulky one-piece design. It is very hard to hand wash or hang to drain. Using a washer, one load can wash or dry 2 to 3 pillows only. Beyond the lengthy wash time, the filling fiberfill for the alternative recovery pillows gets stacked or lose their shape by the second washing which can become costly.

Notice our Opening System that makes the EZ-Clean™ Sanitary Solution work better and look more attractive.

A. Our EZ-Clean™ Sanitary Solution Developed to Reduce Infection Risk and Improve Patient Safety

In 2016, our company Best Plush Inc. was approached by a top heart hospital that was experiencing infection issues with their cloth heart pillows. These pillows have fiberfill stuffed and porous fabric surfaced. Both fiberfill and cloth surface are very hard to clean and a susceptible breeding ground for germs. Patients or any compromised nonpatient users can get easily exposed to infecion or directly infected that can lead dangerous post-op complications. Te post-op complications may be much more severe or dangerous for those patients and recovering individuals who who have a weak or compromised immune system. The hospital’s concern and our partnership inspired us and helped us establish the idea of the “Easy to Clean” as the top priority of our product development. We innovated at every opportunity including with the design, material selection, manufacturing processing, and testing. We successfully developed a lot of know-how including the EZ-Clean™ Sanitary Solution, which is patent pending. While you can read the Product Development Stories for the full details, for now, check out a quick highlight below.


C. The EZ-Clean™ Sanitary Solution Starts with the Innovative Design and Construction

B. The EZ-Clean™ Sanitary Solution’s Goals

  • It is Easy to Keep Our Pillow Dry.

  • It is Easy to Clean Our Pillow.

  • It is Easy to Wash Our Pillow.



Any quality manufacturer knows the importance of innovating at every opportunity, especially when it comes to standing out in a competitive market.  To say that the therapeutic and recovery industry is merely competitive is quite an understatement!  To set the infection control and prevention to a high bar nodoby can reach, our innovation all starts with every step of design and construction.

  • Each EZ-Clean™ Heart Pillow has an inner pillow and outer cover.

  • The outer cover wraps the inner pillow. They are removable from each other through an opening system, making it possible to move, store, buy and wash them separately.

  • The outer cover is made of specially reinforced soft vinyl. The vinyl quality is chosen for the outer cover because its surface is smooth which mean common household bactera have a hard time to stick to, and are easy to remove. The vinyl is also waterproof that prevents bacteria from accessing the inner pillow.

  • The inner pillow is filled with movable microbeads that contour to the user’s body when it is hugged, giving cozier support.

D. It is Easy to Keep Our Pillows Dry!

  • In order to begin discussing the safety of patients and nonpatient users, and the dangers of liquids accessing the inner pillow, we have to first think about the state of a patient in the patient room or a recovering individual at home, especially one who is in the early stages of recovery following surgery. Those who have gone trough a traumatic situation or are suffering from pain in these situations usually have a hard time controlling the messes they cause, which can often involve bodily fluids including the blood, vomit, and mucus.

  • That is why we developed our therapeutic pillows with a waterproof vinyl cover. Any mess, drink or other liquid will be unable to penetrate the waterproof vinyl and won’t leak inside. The inner pillow won’t get wet or messed. It stays virus-free. It is effortless and costs nothing to keep our inner pillow dry.

  • What if this happens to traditional cloth pillow that always has a porous fabric surface? The mess and liquid are sure to seep inside or run between the stitches before anyone can react. Outside germs are likely to breed on the surface and inside the fiberfill which can be very  dangerous for any patient or non-patient user with weak or compromised immune system.

E. It is Easy to Clean Our Pillows!

  • Imagine a scenario where a patient or nonpatient user with a limited mobility spills a drink on our waterproof recovery heart pillow which they are actively using to reduce pain and clear phlegm from their lungs post-surgery.  A nurse, or the user or a home caretaker or someone else can quickly wipe it with a piece of cloth or tissue, and spray disinfectant onsite. The EZ-Clean Pillow can be reused immediately without a safety concern. There is no worry about whether the inner pillow was exposed to moisture. There is no need to have many backup pillows kept in the jammed patient room or taking up room in your home. This is not the case at all with a cloth pillow, which can be time-consuming to clean, wash, and transport!  Is it easy enough to clean our vinyl pillow?

  • How does a medical facility or a patient family handle a messy cloth pillow? It is definitely unsafe to let the patient or recovering user continue using a messy pillow. Should you try to wipe the mess off of the cloth pillow? Unfortunately, you cannot wipe the mess that has already leaked inside of a traditional cloth recovery pillow. You can’t even wipe the mess that has soaked into the threads or sunken between the weaves. It is a bad idea to put the messy cloth pillow aside and let it dry by itself for later reuse because germs can breed inside the pillow very quickly.  The cloth pillows must be sent to the laundry room (so backup pillows are required) for washing and drying, prior to any user utilizing them for support. As you can tell, this is a time-consuming process. Oftentimes traditional cloth pillows are trashed after just a few uses because of how time-consuming they are to wash, clean, and move throughout the hospital.  Not only are our EZ-Clean™ Vinyl Heart Pillows cost-effective they are also eco-friendly as well. 

It's Effortless to Keep It Dry

It is a Breeze to Remove the Mess

F. It is Easy to Wash Our Pillows.

  • All cloth heart pillows on the market are designed as bulky one-piece. A regular washing machine can handle 2-3 pieces per load, but are often washed one at a time-recovery setting. It is very hard to hand wash it or hang the fiberfill-filled pillow to dry. To make it worse, the fiberfill filling of most cloth pillows gets hardened or stacked in its third wash. A hardened pillow loses its support function. That is why many hospitals and other medical centers are struggling if they should wash or trash. Some medical facilities simply give the messy cloth pillows to the non-profit organizations that will need to experience the unwelcomed washing. It is true that the heart pillows are a huge cost (or insurance bill) that keeps growing, and can even cost individuals going through therapy hundreds of dollars over just a month or two. Would you like to stop the financial and eco wastes?

  • Good news! Our EZ-Clean™ Heart Pillow offers an easy, economical, and effective solution. Let’s see what to wash first! Our inner pillows are protected by the waterproof cover allowing them to stay dry and clean all the time so it is not necessary to wash the inner pillows. For the required frequent sterilization, just wash and dry the removable covers by machine. You can easily hand wash it and hang it to dry.  Washing the vinyl covers is about 7 to 10 times faster than washing the cloth pillows. Just another way that our EZ-Clean™ Vinyl Pillows are user-friendly and more cost-effective than the competition. 

  • Do the pillows get damaged during washing or drying? Our vinyl pillow covers stay intact at least 15 wash while the fiberfill filling of cloth pillows can get hardened or stacked in the 3rd wash; During the washing and drying, the print and writing on our vinyl cover won’t be destroyed, but the ink on the cloth pillows gets faded very quickly.

Completely Washing Friendly!

G. The Sanitary Solution Is Enhanced with the Opening System

  • An effective opening system is built on the outer cover to make the inner pillow and outer cover removable from each other and enhance the EZ-Clean Sanitary Solution.

  • Extra measures are taken to assure the EZ-Clean™ Solution. First, the opening was placed on the back of the cover since normally most of the messes won’t end up on the backside. Second, the opening is zipper controlled and the two zipper ends are sealed with cloth covers. Third, a protective flap is added to conceal the zippered opening and the flap is made of vinyl, the same waterproof germ-resistant as for the outer cover. And last but not least important, the flap is built with the mouth downward so liquid can run over the flap but not into the opening. All of these measures help to protect the inner pillow, make the pillow attractive, and make it easy to remove and restore. If you need to remove the inner pillow, simply flip up the flap, pull down the zipper, and pull out the inner pillow. To put the inner pillow back, just insert, zip-up, and fold down the flap. Now upon being washed and dried, it’s ready to work like a brand new pillow.

  • In addition to enhancing the EZ-Clean Sanitary Solution, our opening system also minimizes access to the zipper by anyone. The system makes it impossible for the patients to get injured or infected by the zipper or protective flap. It also prevents children from reaching inside the inner pillow for the inner contents.  Without an adult’s guide, children are unable to discover the opening, lift up the tight flap, locate the zipper, unzip it, pull out the inner pillow, and cut the quality fabric surface of the inner pillow.

Innovative Opening System

EZ-Clean™ Sanitary Solution makes our heart-shaped recovery pillows easy to keep dry, easy to clean, and easy to wash. The EZ-Clean™ Solution is totally unmatched by any other recovery or therapeutic heart pillows on the market.
