    Default How often do you replace your pillows?

    I've just seen a giveaway promo for some new Tontine pillows that are stamped with a use by date. Apparently they've done studies and there is a huge amount of mould in pillows that can't be washed/dried out, so old pillows need to be chucked out.

    It got me to thinking.... How often do you replace your pillows? I know I have a few (4 kids, 2 adults, 2 pillows per person = 12 pillows) that probably need to see the end of their day. But I try and wash/tumble dry/sun dry when I can... Which is not as often as I'd like 😑

    I recently replaced all of ours. Before that I'm ashamed to say I don't know. Only because I loved our pillows and they are so comfy. It took me ages to get used to our new ones. Every pillow in the house now has a waterproof cover on it

    Not often enough

    I have one of the special memory type pillows I brought from a chiro many years ago. I've tried replacing it but can't find another one as comfortable.

    I remember buying pillows with a 10 year warranty. (That was about eight or nine years ago now, and they are still going strong.)

    I recently bought the tontine ones with the date they are good! Sadly before that was like 4-5 years.

    But going to keep it within the date from now.
