So, how often should you be ditching your pillow in favor of a new one? The answer may surprise you to the point of disbelief. The answer is every 18-36 months. Yes, you read that correctly. After a year and a half, you should start to monitor your pillow’s cleanliness and performance, to recognize when it is time for a replacement.
Determining when it’s time to let your pillow go can be a difficult one. It’s understandable that you have become attached to your pillow. There’s a good chance that you spend more time with your pillow than your family. You may even like your pillow more than any family member! However, your pillow may be harboring some very dirty secrets.
Night after night of sleeping on a pillow causes it to absorb body oil, dead skin cells, and hair. Yep, that’s dirty alright. Downright gross really. Just think of all that buildup where you place your head everyday. Add to this list of nasty some sweat and drool, and your pillow may be capable of walking away on it’s own.
Additionally, your pillow’s overall performance indeed suffers with daily use. The support you once had when your pillow was new may be long gone and you haven’t realized it. There is a simple question you can ask yourself to determine if the structure of your pillow has crumbled. How often do you wake up with a sore or stiff neck, or can’t get comfortable during the night? If the answer is “often” it is time to get a new pillow.
