Items in the bedroom
Pillows: 2-3 years
You put your head on it every night. You adjust it by pulling, punching or rolling it until your neck is comfortable. But after a while the pillow loses its shape thus becoming less supportive of your neck which can lead to neck pain. Also, the sweat from your body makes it a perfect home for dust mites. YUCK!
Slippers: 6 months
After you spend a long day wearing uncomfortable shoes or high heels, slippers are the perfect choice to rest your feet in. However, they are also an environment where fungal infections are spread, so keep in mind that you should wash them as often as possible, by hand or in the washing machine depending on the type of the slippers.
