HOW OFTEN SHOULD I REPLACE MY PILLOW?

The answer: Nearly 70 percent of people say a comfortable a pillow is very important to a good night's sleep, but many of us make a crucial mistake when it comes to our favorite pillows: We're keeping them for way too long. Pillows should probably be replaced around every six months, says Robert Oexman, DC, director of the Sleep to Live Institute, and definitely within two years, according to WebMD.

A host of mites and debris can be found in the very pillow you lay your face on night after night after night. Dirt, oil and dead skin cells get trapped in the pillow. Dust mites, which belong to the spider family, also like to hang out in the crevices of your pillow. "You can't see them, but they're concentrated where people are, in things like bedding and carpeting," says Mark R. Neustrom, DO, of Kansas City Allergy and Asthma Associates.
