Adults should spend eight hours every night in bed for a great restful sleep. That is the guideline on number of hours people should sleep and kids more. And we all know when we don’t get a good night of sleep or even half of one. We all sleep differently and have things that interrupt our sleep like dogs.
What Is In Your Favorite Pillow
Pillows are often filled with down-feather combinations, latex, foam, polyester fiberfill and memory foam. Sometimes people can have allergies to down-feather and the latex rubbery stuff so this is a reason you should know what is in your pillow. It might contribute to your sneezing. Maybe you did not realize that. People like the down because it gives the cushy feel they are looking for but still has enough stuff in it for support. Down typically means feathers from a goose.
Down and Memory Foam
You might even have a memory foam bed in your house. When you put your hand or head down on it, it makes a print or impression on where you’ve been. Sometimes when you have a new one, it smells funny. When you leave, you can watch the foam come back to life. Even astronauts and NASA use memory foam for stuff. Some pillows can be made with feathers but they are also treated so that people are not allergic to them.
People who are allergic to geese and duck feathers but still want a down pillow squishy feel can try a down alternative pillow. The alternative down pillow is filled with polyester fibers threaded together. A polyester fiber is a fast-drying flexible synthetic meaning man made fiber.
Washing Your Pillow
Don’t think you can just stick your pillow in the washing machine. This is why they have those sometimes annoying tags. You can read the tag to see if you can put yours in the machine or what the company says about how to clean your pillow.
Some pillows can even be filled with water. Yes that’s true!!! It sounds like fun but you have to be careful with furry friends poking a hole in it for example. Why do people want one? If you are someone who sleeps really warm or hot, it will help you sleep at a steady temperature and perhaps not sweat.
You can find pillows that are filled with microbeads and and can form different shapes. You may remember seeing pillows that are in the shape of a letter U that you can use when traveling and to be more comfortable. If you are a camper, you can find an inflatable pillow to fill it with air and easily take it with you.
