Pillow and pillow covers.
March 10, 2017 5:11am CST
Our pillows and pillow cover are very important for us. Some of us don't use pillows due to medical reasons, however, most of us use it. I read in an article that research has proved that if a pillow is used for long time, it could contain invisible dust particles, microbes, bacteria, virus and germs in it, therefore, we should change our pillow after a certain period of time. Likewise, invisible dirt, dust and our dead skin get accumulated on pillow covers also, therefore, pillow covers should be changed frequently. How often do you change your pillows and pillow covers?

I change my pillow covers once a week religiously. I can't stand them anymore than that long. I am very particular about my pillows and I would like to wash the actual pillow more often, except sometimes I am lazy because I have to walk a very long way to go to laundry with them for the big machines as there is only little machines not big enough in my place friend. Yes I agree pillows are very important.

Oh, with all that sweat and stuff . . . cleaning pillows and their cases is a must! We can clean the cases at least once a week - and with the pillows when we think of it. But the eventually the pillow falls flat, so we have to get new ones.

Yes, it is better to change pillow covers on regular basis to keep ourselves away from dust and other such particles. We should not feel hesitant to change pillow also, after all it is we, who have to sleep on pillows and pillow should always be in a good condition.
