The soft pillows will accompany us to sleep and stay with us for a lifetime. A comfortable pillow can bring restful sleep. But there is a shelf life for pillows, how long will the pillows be replaced? Old pillows are more likely to breed mites and bacteria, which can cause diseases. Therefore, the pillow should be changed regularly and kept clean. So do you know how often the pillow should be changed? Are there any maintenance methods for pillows?
1. Pillow and down pillow:
It is an animal fiber, fluffy, good ventilation, but not suitable for people with allergies or sweating. Down and feather will cobble together when exposed to water. The general life cycle is 2-3 years.
Cleaning and maintenance: It is recommended to dry and disinfect every 2 Sundays to help the down become more fluffy. Sun exposure is best before 11 am or after 3 pm to avoid damage to the fiber. If it is dirty, wring out the towel soaked in cold detergent, press lightly on the stained area, and dry it in the shade in a ventilated place.
2. Memory Foam pillow:
The elastic latex pillow is not easy to be deformed, has good air permeability, and has a smooth surface. It is suitable for people with allergies to use, and the service life is 3-5 years.
Cleaning and maintenance: soak in laundry detergent, press lightly with your hands, and then rinse with clean water repeatedly. After that, wrap it with a dry cloth to absorb most of the water, and then place it in a cool place to air dry. Do not expose it to the sun to avoid deterioration and oxidation of the material.
3. Pillow chemical fiber pillow:
It is made of cheap man-made fibers, but it is easy to agglomerate under long-term heavy pressure. It is recommended to sterilize in the sun once a month, and replace it every three months or when the pillow becomes hard.
Cleaning and maintenance: When soiled, it can be washed with a washing machine at a low speed. To avoid breaking the fiber, the washing and dehydration time should not exceed 5 minutes.
4. Pillow tea pillow:
The lovable fragrance of tea can have a relaxing effect. The service life is about 1 year-1 and a half years.
Cleaning and maintenance: regularly replace pillowcases and expose them to the sun. You can also put on the pillow case after putting a plastic cover on the pillow contents. Do not press hard to avoid destroying the structure of the contents and shorten the service life.
