3275 All I want for Christmas is a new pillow

While stripping the bed down to the mattress today to wash all the bedding, I looked at the stained, sad, pathetic down pillow that my husband uses (I'd taken off the pillow protector and the pillow case), and said to him, "Ten percent of a two year old pillow might be made up of dead mites and their droppings, either the North American or the European, but we probably have the North American, don't you think?" (Don't tell me people who've been married close to 50 years don't have anything to talk about!) "How old is this one?" he asked. "I think my mother got us new down pillows about twenty years ago for Christmas," I said. "Maybe you could get me a new pillow for Christmas," he suggested.

See the fact sheet here--then go out and buy your family new pillows for Christmas.

It is very true about what can accumalate in your pillow and mattress after awhile. We bought a Kirby vacuum and did our beds and pillows both. And we were sure surprised at all the mites and dust that came out from them.

Hi Norma

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, reading this I want to rush out and buy new pillows. But at 0100 hrs there are no stores open so it will have to wait for the Mall to open.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas

PS stop by the blog again when you get a chance

Our pillows will be 2 yrs old this spring and it's already on my January white sale list. Yuck! I don't even want to think about the mattress (can't afford a new one of those every 2 yrs.).
