How often should you wash your pillows?

How often should you wash your pillows

Generally, we only know that the daily four-piece sets and pillow towels need to be replaced and washed regularly. The recommended time is about two weeks, but how often do you wash and change pillows? I believe that many people have no concept.

In response to this question, an authoritative doctor and expert gave the answer. He suggested that no matter how good the pillow is, no matter how comfortable and expensive, it should be replaced after 6 months for the sake of health. Because the pillow has been used for a long time, the saliva, sweat, and dust and dander on the head will penetrate into the pillow core, which will breed dust mites, bacteria, and cause allergic diseases in severe cases.

In addition, if the pillow is not changed for a long time, the pillow will deform or the filling of the pillow core will agglomerate, and the pillow will not fit the neck and neck, resulting in cervical pain. Therefore, whether it is a pillow or a pillow towel, it is recommended to learn to regularly dry, clean and change regularly, so as to give the face a clean and comfortable sleeping environment.

So let’s popularize it today, what are the standards for changing and washing pillows of different materials?
