How Long Do Pillows Actually Last

You spend one third of your life head or face down on a pillow so choose pillows with care is really necessary. A right pillow will support your sleep posture and help you wake refreshed and ready for the day ahead.
A pillow’s lifespan will depend on its filling quality, how often it’s slept on and how well it’s cared for and washed. Pillows usually last between 1.5 years – three years, with poor quality pillows often having an even shorter lifespan. As the saying goes, buy cheap, buy several.
When to replace your pillow?
Unless you wake with aches or your pillow’s lumpy, it can be hard to know when to replace your pillow. Pillows lose their ability to provide good support as they age, which can put pressure on your neck. This can lead to back problems and prevent you from getting a good night’s sleep.
Choosing a pillow that’s easy to wash will also help you keep your pillow free from everyday dirt and dust.
How to Make Your Pillows Last Longer?
Adding a pillow protector helps prolong your pillow’s lifespan and add an extra layer of comfort. A soft and breathable zipped pillow protector will more effectively protect from odour, stains and dust mites than an unzipped envelope style pillow protector.
Many natural fill pillows can be washed at 40 degrees and tumble dried on a low setting until completely dry, but always follow the manufacturer’s pillow washing instructions.
