How Often Should You Replace Your Pillow?
Chances are you don’t think about your pillow very much.
Did you ever think of how often you need to replace it? Some experts say every six months to two years.
In fact, pillows should probably be replaced around every six months, says Robert Oexman, DC, director of the Sleep to Live Institute, and definitely within two years, according to WebMD, a stark difference from the five-to-10-year lifespan of the typical mattress. “People talk about how nasty a mattress gets,” says Oexman, but pillows are more frequently forgotten.
