A: The primary difference between pillowcases and shams is their intended function. Pillowcases are more practical by nature and are intended to cover pillows used for sleeping purposes. Shams, on the other hand, serve a more decorative function. Sometimes, shams are adorned with embellishments, lace and crochet for added personality and flair.

Q: What causes pillow cases to yellow or change color?
A: Pillowcases can take on a yellow or dingy appearance from being exposed to moisture (e.g., sweat, skincare products, damp hair or even the occasional drooling session during deep REM sleep). Check your pillowcases’ care instructions to determine the best approach to cleaning or spot treating these stains as needed. Remember, cotton is a fabric that is particularly suited for easy stain removal!
