No one can deny the importance of getting a quality night’s rest. Not only do you wake up feeling more relaxed, rejuvenated and all around better, but you also benefit in the form of long-term health. The amount of rest we get, and its quality, directly relate back to our health.
One key element in making sure you actually get a good night’s rest is your pillow. You might not think it, but your pillows are critical to keeping you healthy and happy. If you are overweight, older, or sleep on your back, you are more at risk to suffer from sleep disorders than others. Your pillow plays a key role in making sure you sleep soundly through the night. If you are in the category listed above, then you could be suffering from a lack of oxygen during sleep—a problem you do not want to have.
Your pillow’s sole job is to make sure that your neck and shoulders stay properly aligned while you rest. While you do not want to get a pillow that is too stiff, you also don’t want one so soft it deflates when you lay your head on it. You need to find a happy medium.
The proper pillow will keep your head perfectly balanced and allow oxygen to flow smoothly through your windpipe. This is a major factor in getting the right amount of sleep. Sleeping on your side (with a knee pillow between you knees) is the best possible position, and you should purchase a pillow that supports this preference.
Another key factor is maintaining a healthy pillow. Don’t hesitate to switch out your pillow when it begins to deflate and show signs of wear and tear. Know when it is time to get a new pillow and then go out and purchase the very best one you can afford. Look for an allergy-resistant pillow to avoid allergens and choose one that suits your sleeping style. Doing so can benefit your health for the rest of your life.
Despite what you may believe, your pillow does have an expiration date. It isn’t so much that it’s stylish to get a new pillow, but it is more about the support they offer. The older a pillow gets, the worse your pillow is for your neck, back and shoulders.
So the question is, how can you know when it is ready to be thrown in the recycle bin? No, it doesn’t just have to do with the number of stains a pillow has. In fact, most pillows go out far before they ever have a stain on them. This is particularly the case if you have a more affordable alternative pillow. Fortunately, there are pillows out there that offer real durability and last far longer than their cheaper counterparts.
According to the Better Sleep Council, you can do a simple test to determine whether or not you need to make a trip to the store:
Just fold your pillow over in half
Squeeze out the additional air in the pillow.
Your pillow should automatically spring back to its original fullness and shape.
If it fails to spring back to it’s original shape, then it could be time to get a new pillow.
Of course, there are other telltale signs that your pillow needs to be replaced. This includes noticeable signs of wear and tear, it no longer feels quite the way it used to—especially when you’re laying down, or it shows visible signs of dirt and stains. Pillows with uncomfortable lumps and bumps also present a problem and should be replaced.
Once you’ve purchased a new pillow, you want to take good care of it to make sure it lasts as long as you want. This ensures you get the most out of your investment and enjoy the support and comfort you need to sleep soundly. Replacing your pillow is the key to a good night’s rest, so don’t ignore this simple maintenance tip.

If you own sleeping luxury pillows and are concerned about keeping them healthy, then you’re in the right spot. Keeping your pillows clean and healthy is important for your own health, which makes it important for you to know how to clean them. Consider the following three ways to clean your luxury pillows to keep yourself happy and healthy.
Cleaning Down & Fiber Fill Pillows
If your pillows are fiber or down, then throw them in the wash once every few months. Make sure you wash two pillows at once to keep your washer balanced. Read the label to see how to properly wash your bed pillow and to avoid damaging it.
Cleaning Foam Pillows
Not necessarily the most comfortable pillows, foam based pillows are great for support but are a bit more difficult to clean. Instead of tossing them in the wash, you need to use a vacuum to suck up the dirt and dust that automatically build up on pillows. You can also throw the pillow in the dryer on low-heat to kill any other bacteria that may have been captured by the foam.
Know When to Buy New Bed Pillows
If you fold your bed pillows in half and they don’t bounce back then you need to purchase new pillows. That usually happens once every six months.
Stay healthy with these quick and easy tricks for cleaning your luxury pillows.
