A vacuum cleaner is always a great method to use whether the pillow looks dirty or not, as pillows sit around they collect dust and other debris from the air. People sitting on them, laying about with them and even pets can make these pillows a collection of yuck. So, by taking a vacuum to them, they can get some of that collection out.
