According to the National Sleep Foundation, pillows should be replaced every one to two years. If your pillows have pillowcases, we can use them again after cleaning, disinfecting, and exposing them to the sun. If only the surface of the pillowcase is yellow, and the filling inside is not deteriorated or moldy, we can also use the pillow core for secondary use. Of course, it must be disinfected and cleaned before use.
