If you’re having nightmares about your pillow, it’s time for a wake-up call about replacing it. I know, I know — pillows are expensive, and thinking about buying a new one can be painful. But if you can’t remember the last time you replaced yours, or if your pillow has lost its original shape, lumps have formed in it for no reason at all, or you’re waking up with inexplicable aches and pains in your head and neck that weren’t there when you went to bed the night before… well then, I’m afraid you’ve got an issue. The good news is that there are simple ways to extend the life of your pillow so it doesn’t go bad on you… or at least not as soon!

Wash your pillow regularly.

Washing your pillow is one of the most important steps in maintaining its quality. It’s also one of the easiest things to do, since you can just toss it in the washing machine. Here’s how:

  • Place a clean pillowcase on your pillow and zip it up. This will keep it clean and protected while you wash it.
  • Add some mild detergent (you should be able to find this at any store) to the water before adding your pillow. Don’t use too much; otherwise, it could end up smelling like soap!
  • Wash on cold with no spin cycle—this will help preserve the fluffiness of your cushioning material so that you can get more snoozing out from it each night! If possible, dry using a low heat setting; this will also prolong its lifespan by preventing shrinkage or clumping together too much like wet cotton balls do when dried incorrectly.”

Rotate it, so you use both sides.

Rotating your pillow will help to extend the life of your sleeping pillow. You should rotate your pillow every few months, or when you start to notice any issues with it.

You should rotate your sleeping pillow if:

  • You notice that one side of the pillow is getting flat and hard, while the other side is still soft and full. This means that it’s time to flip!
  • You have allergies or asthma and notice an increase in symptoms after using the same side for a long period of time (an hour or more). This could be because this part of the pillow has been absorbing moisture or dust mites over time. Rotating will help prevent this from happening too much as well as keeping both sides clean for better health benefits overall.”

Fluff up the pillow, if it’s a down pillow or down alternative, or massage it if it’s a memory foam pillow.

The best way to get the most out of your sleeping pillow is to fluff it and massage it regularly. This will help keep the fill in place, allowing for a better night’s sleep and prolonging the life of your pillow. For example, if you have a down pillow or down alternative pillow, fluffing it will help keep the filling from bunching up at one end due to gravity. You can also massage any memory foam pillows that you own on a regular basis so that they maintain their shape and comfort level over time.

Don’t throw the pillow in the dryer — wipe it off with a towel, and then let it air dry while you’re out of the house.

Don’t put your pillow in the sun.

Don’t put your pillow in the freezer.

Don’t put your pillow in the oven!

Consider getting your own personal pillow.

There are a few reasons why you might want to consider getting your own personal pillow. First, if you’re used to sleeping with a pillow, it can be more comfortable to sleep with one. Second, if you need a specific type of neck support or back support, it may be hard to find that in an unfamiliar bed or hotel room. Thirdly, allergies or skin problems can make it difficult for anyone to sleep well at night; having your own pillow makes it easier for those issues not to bother your sleep as much. Finally (and most importantly), having the right set of pillows can help prevent neck pain and back pain from ruining your days!

Another benefit of having multiple pillows is that they let you experiment with different types of pillows until you find one that fits perfectly into your life and allows you enough comfort while still being able/willing/excited about using them every day. For example: I prefer soft pillows because they feel nice against my face when i’m lying down but firm enough so the material doesn’t get too squishy like other types out there today like memory foam ones which tend towards being too soft overall so I wouldn’t recommend buying those unless someone else has already bought them first then given away their old ones because they’ve already used up all their useful life.”

Taking care of your sleeping pillow in this way will help you get the most out of your investment in having good sleep quality.

You should wash your pillows regularly, rotating them so that both sides are used. Doing so will help prevent the build-up of bacteria and fungus that can cause odor and discoloration over time. You also want to fluff or massage the pillow every few days to maintain its support level.

Finally, it’s important not to dry your pillows; they are best dried on a flat surface so that they don’t lose their shape or take too long to air dry (overdrying can cause cracking). Instead, place them under a ceiling fan or near an open window for several hours until they feel completely dry on both sides of the case—you should check this often as it shouldn’t take more than 24 hours at most!

To keep your sleeping experience as fresh as possible while still maintaining optimal support levels throughout its lifespan, replace yours every 2-3 years–or sooner if you notice any deterioration from frequent use such as sagging edges where there were once no dips whatsoever.”
