When is the last time you changed your pillow and I am not on about the pillow case. According to a recent study by a well-known bedding company, nearly all asked (92%) where aware of what can live and grow inside your pillow, which nearly 30% of your day is spent on.
The main reason for looking to change a pillow, was it had become lumpy, followed by it looked stained and then it failed the sniff test.
Did you know one third of the weight of a two year old pillow consists of dead skin, dust mites and their faeces? How disgusting spending up to 8 hours a night lying on this.
Pillows should be washed and changed more regularly, just because it looks clean and smells clean does not mean it’s clean. Follow the instructions for best results.
Waking at night with a stuffy nose, nasal drainage, and itchy skin is no way to get great nights sleep. A good test to tell if a pillow is past its sell by date is to fold it over and see if it springs back, if it doesn’t, time to say goodbye.
Cheaper pillows then to have a shorter life span, they roughly need to be changed every 6 months or less. Better quality pillows depending on the filling and how they are maintain then to have a longer lifespan and should be changed roughly every one to two years.
