One Household Item you Should Replace Today

A pain in the neck – in the literal sense, that’s what a worn-out pillow can give you



To tell whether your pillow have reached its toss-by date, give it the ‘break test’:

For a fibrefill or down- or feather-filled pillow, fold it in half with a heavy book on top. If, after you remove the book, the pillow pops back so it’s flat, keep it. If it stays folded in half, it’s ‘broken’ – either use the filling to stuff smaller pillows or chuck it out.
