You might expect dirt and germs to fester in the bathroom or even the kitchen, but certainly not the same pillow you rest your clean head on each night! According to TODAY.com “the accumulation of dust mites and their waste can make a pillow double its weight in two years.” Now that’s gross!
Some pillows are completely washable, but for those that can’t be laundered, consider a washable cover that can be washed every one to two weeks. This simple chore will rid your pillow of dirt, dust, mites and dead skin cells that have accumulated over time.
