Do you often wonder how long you can keep a bed pillow? Changing the pillowcases regularly isn’t enough to keep them clean and supportive forever. Some sleep experts suggest replacing a pillow every few years but it’s really up to you.

If you’re not sure if your pillow is still doing its job, ask yourself:
• Is the foam or batting inside the form lumpy or bumpy?
• Does your feather pillow have to be punched or fluffed up for support?
• If you fold the pillow in half, does it stay folded?

If you answered yes to any of these, it’s time for a nice, new pillow. If you’d rather your old pillows didn’t end up in the garbage, consider how you can repurpose them. If you have pets, maybe use them for a doggy or kitty bed — the ultimate in recycling!

OR, if you have down pillows, consider our Down Pillow Rejuvenation service in which we discard old ticking, kill bacteria, sanitize and deodorize the filling and sift out the dust that has been trapped in the pillow.  The result is a pillow returned to its original level of comfort and fluffiness and allergies are reduced.
