did you know that you're supposed to change your pillows every 1-2 years? Some say every 5-6 months but I think that's a bit excessive...
Turns out that there are loads of dust mites that live and grow and multiply in your pillow- and (so I've read) if your pillow is 2 years old then roughly 10% of your pillow is made up of dust mites and their droppings. ew
I read this recently- and today I spent my Christmas Bay GC (thanks Mom and Cliff!) on some new pillows (I don't want to tell you how old my pillows were!)
yay for new pillows!!
