Myth busters did a thing about chopping boards a while ago - and wood was the winner. Hmm, maybe marble was. Anyway, plastic was the worst. Wood also self heals unlike plastic which ends up 'furry' from cuts.

Wood chopping board - change every 18mnths to 2 years.
I buy pillows in bulk usually and replace them all including spare bed pillows and spares so I don't pay any attention to date stamps. I do put covers over them before pillow cases which to me lengthens the time they "look" fresh and clean but not sure if they are actually cleaner for longer!

Just to add to the wooden chopping board thing...
wood draws moisture away from the surface/cracks where bacteria can live...dries them out and they can't survive.

I also use separate boards.
However the one I use for meat only is plastic, but I pour boiling water over the top first and then wash with detergent.
However, I'm going to buy a wooden one for my meat tomorrow!
Ps- those date stamps are just a marketing ploy to get you to buy more pillows. If you use those pillow protectors, you should be able to get more life out of your pillow. I change mine when it 'feels' uncomfortable.

We use plastic chopping boards that we've had for years and we don't use separate ones for meat. This bacteria you all speak of, what does it do? We don't get sick apart from maybe one cold per year. No one in our household has had gastro in years (touch wood...or, err, plastic!)

Yeah I don't really understand separate chopping boards either. Do people also use separate dishwashing cloths/brushes as I would think they could harbour bacteria as well.

I only use wood as just think every slice into plastic is in your food 😂 I'm paranoid I know!
When my pillows not comfortable anymore I wash them etc

Most things, including pillows and chopping boards, are just when they look like they're due to be changed.
Dishcloths, on the other hand, are used for a few days at the max. I can't stand people using gross looking dishcloths!
