Everything You Need to Know About Pillows
You’re Worth It
We spend at least a third of our entire lives in bed and yet people rarely replace their pillows or mattresses – and then wonder why they don’t sleep well! Some pillows are obviously past their useful life, but if you’re not sure about one, see if it will pass the pillow test!
Put Your Pillow to the Test
Put your pillow on a flat surface and fold it in half and hold it there with your hand. If it doesn’t fold in half easily, it’s already passed the test! Now place a shoe on top of the folded part. Let go! If the shoe flies off, your pillow doesn’t need replacing. If it doesn’t – it’s time to go shopping!
As a general rule, it’s recommended that your replace your pillows every six months to two years – depending on how well they are lasting.
