The purpose of a pillow is to help you get a good night’s sleep. Pillows do this by supporting your head, aligning your neck with your spine and generally making you feel comfortable.

If you keep waking up at night the first thing we’d ask is “how old are your pillows?”

Most high quality pillows will only last for 2-4 years before they stop giving you the support you need. Discount pillows, those one kind fits all, won’t last even a fraction as long.

Remember a pillow that weighed 10 ounces when you first bought it can double its weight in three years. And it does so by filling up with a lot of nasty things like dust mites, and their leavings, dead skin and household dust and mold. You’ll realize that getting into the habit of replacing your pillow regularly is good for your health especially if you are prone to allergies.

3 new pillows on a bed

There is no better feeling than sleeping on a comfortable new pillow.

Here’s a simple test you can do to see if your pillow needs to be replaced.

If you use feather or down pillows, place one on a hard surface and fold it in half. Lean your body weight on it to press out all the air. If it springs back to its original shape then it is still good. If it keeps its folded shape then you definitely need a new one.

If you have a synthetic pillow then fold it in half and place something, like a good-sized paperback on top of the folded pillow. If the pillow flips the book off as it assumes its original shape then your pillow still has some life in it. If the book doesn’t move on the folded pillow then it’s time to start looking for a new one if you want to have a better sleep.

Old and unsupportive pillows may also be the reason you wake up with a headache, neck pain or a stiff neck.

The pillows we carry are not only resilient and supportive but those made with such products as natural talalay latex are mold and mildew proof, dust mite resistant, antibacterial and anti-fungal which are perfect for people who have allergies or asthma.

Sleep Experts can help you choose pillows made especially for people who sleep on their sides, backs or fronts and they come in a variety of sizes from soft to firm.

As an added bonus Sleep Experts is offering a second pillow at half price with the purchase of any pillow in stock.

So now’s the time to come in and try them and we’ll help you find the best pillow to keep you and your family healthy.
