Don't get too attached to your favourite pillow!

Everything has an expiry date including your favourite pillow that you've used a million times to shed tears and as your cuddle buddy. Know when it's time to change your pillows. 

Finding a comfortable pillow is surely a task but what if we tell you to not get too attached to it?

Yes, you heard it right. A leading virologist Dr Lindsay Broadbent recently said that if the pillows are more than 2 years old then 10% of its weight is house dust mites and their poo!

According to experts, pillows should be replaced every 1 to 2 years. As this ensures that you are using pillows that are clean and free of germs.

Earlier, Dr Karan Raj, whose video went viral on TikTok, said that pillows must be changed every 2 years because the stuff inside them gets filled with bacteria and the worms start growing on the sweat spots.
