I replace my pillows every year. They are washed in very hot water and bleach every month. Most people drool in their sleep, they may not realize it but there are all kind of nasties on your pillow, it just nice to place your head on a nice clean pillow at night.
I wash my pillows as I hate getting used to new ones. I also put them out in the sun a lot on the top of a clothes airer and turn them during the day. Having said that, I bought new pillows just before Christmas purely because I wanted to give my pillows to the dogs. My new ones are really comfy and the dogs love having human pillows. LOL.
If the pillows are cheap ones,I will replace them,but I have some exquisitely high quality ones which were given as a gift to me,and these actually wash very nicely and end up just like new,so I HAVE kept this pair and will most likely have them for a long time to come. They are just the most gorgeous things to lay my head on!!
I change my pillows every few years. They get uncomfortable after a while if you leave them too long, and cease to perform their function of supporting the head and neck. I have heard that after a while the pillow gets moist with sweat and dribble and contains the bodies of insects that nest there. This is supposed to be the same in mattresses. I suppose some poor person was paid to open up pillows and mattresses and discovered this. Ha! Ha
no, I like the ones I've got. You can always change the look of a pillow by putting new covers on them, so I like to stick to the ones I've got until I need to change them cause they aren't fluffy anymore
No, no, no. I hate throwing things away. Unless they look like they have been infested by some sort of debilitating disease, I just put them out in the sun. I like to use pillow protectors. Enough of this throw away society.
No I can't make myself change ours, because I had them hand made by a nice Asian, man a long time ago in Sydney NSW, using all duck feathers, & he would have passed away by now, I do feel guilty though, not changing them,
