Replace Bed Pillows Frequently

Everyone should replace the pillows on their beds occasionally to have better support for their head and neck. Also, bed pillows get dirty despite having protective covers and pillowcases. Pillows become contaminated with dead skin cells, body fluids, and dust mites. Many individuals have allergies to pollen or dust, and sleeping on a contaminated pillow throughout the night can lead to having a stuffy nose or itchy eyes in the morning.

Pillows Become Contaminated from Pathogens

Pillows also become contaminated with body fluids such as drool from the mouth or mucus from the nose, and sharing a dirty pillow with someone else can lead to an illness such as the common cold or influenza. There are many types of pillows on the market that are filled with polyester or feathers, but unfortunately, these items are not always hypoallergenic. If an individual is allergic to a bed pillow’s fabric cover or stuffing, then they can experience severe reactions such as chronic coughing or sneeze.

Skin Oils Damage Pillows

In addition to allergic reactions or contracting an illness, a bed pillow can absorb oils from the face or body, and this can lead to having more pimples and blackheads on the skin. Shopping for bed pillows is confusing because there are numerous styles at different prices. There are bed pillows that are considered soft, firm or medium thickness to provide the best comfort while someone reclines on their back or side.

Choose Eco-friendly Bed Pillows 

Anyone who is interested in protecting the environment will want to choose a bed pillow product that is made from recycled materials. ClearFresh Eco-Smart Bed Pillows are stuffed with fiberfill that is made from clear plastic bottles to keep trash out of the local landfills. By buying only one of these bed pillows, a shopper's holding 14 plastic bottles out of the trash. A bonus of these eco-friendly bed pillows is that the items are also washable. The laundering process used for these pillows helps to keep the recycled fiberfill fluffy to provide a supportive surface at night.
