    Default Wwyd: stain on pillow

    What would you do?

    You're heading to bed and find a couple of darkish stains on your pillow. Between kids (and pets) you're not sure whether it's Vegemite, blood or poop.

    Wwyd? What do you think I did?

    Change the pillow case?

    Sniff it?

    Lick it? Please tell me you didn't lick it

    Oh and having read your public toilet and shoes in the house threads, I think you would have thrown the pillow out (assuming you had another) plus changed your sheets and disinfected the old ones OR flipped the pillow and swapped with your DH

    If there was any possibility that it could be poop, I'd be putting a fresh pillow case on!

    I believe this is what you would have done.

    I'm fairly certain you would have changed the pillow (burn the old one) and pillow case. Then got annoyed that it didn't match the bed set and change the whole bed, then realise your mattress could have possibly been in the vicinity of poo so you are sleeping on the couch.

    I would change the case.

    If there's a chance it's poo I would change it! If not, I would probably just turn it over and use it.

    I would definitely change the pillowcase. At a minimum! If it was poo I would be freaking about the pillow would probably ditch it and then kick myself I don't have a pillow protector on my pillow!

    Definitely change the pillow case - whilst changing check for any residual "stain" on pillow or protector if one underneath and if need be change the pillow too
