    tedgp: "because people dont wash their sheets/pillows right? Another fail..."

    No.. It`s because we`re human, and we`re only still learning how much we dratting shed everywhere. At least with my cat, I see it, now I have to dream about microsopic mrsa bugs on my lovely well used pillows.

    Ah I`m sure I`ll live to the morning.... (maybe)

    On another note, I have a pillow that would be a health hazard going by that trustful (ahem) article by the Daily Mail. I`ve had it for 10 years now, and it`s *OMG* 3rd hand feather hand me down. Weighs a ton, but now I know it`s down to the bugs and spare human body parts inside.

    I have a small feather pillow that has been my security blanket for over 25 years. There is no way I`m going to read this article.

    Please don`t link to the Daily Mail IAB.

    Its worse than Fox News.

    I`m just amazed its not blaming the immigrants for an increase in dust/MRSA/dead skin

    Wash your bedding in hot water.

    Dry it in the clothes dryer. The hotter the better.

    Stick pillow in plastic bag and freeze it for 24-48 hours.

    That`ll kill the buggers.

    I`m going to assume its the standard "your pillow and mattress is full of dead skin cells and dust mites.

    put a hypoallergenic cover on the mattress and pillow (they`re like $50 for the mattress and $10 for the pillow), and change your sheets every other week (or once a week if you want).

    I`ve never understood why its ok to sleep in the same sheets for months but you wouldn`t be caught wearing the same clothes the next day while you spent just as much time each day in both and worse, the average person doesn`t bathe before bed so they have all days worth of filth on them.

    Even if you buy new sheets they will have dust mites in them almost instantaneously. They`re not bad for you, in fact they help you shed dead skin. These people just make a report trying to get you to spend money on their products when in fact they aren`t much better at fending off the mites then a regular pillow or sheet.

    Now if you have actual bedbugs - sucks to be you because they are extremely expensive to get rid of. Oh and they will bite you and suck your blood :)

    My husband has owned a pillow longer than I`ve been alive. He has never washed it. He also never gets sick. Gross? No doubt.

    "My husband has owned a pillow longer than I`ve been alive. He has never washed it. He also never gets sick. Gross? No doubt."

    I`ve used the same pillow my entire life and never wash it and I never get sick. I think that being exposed to such small amounts of bacteria and stuff like that helps you immune system be exposed to it and build up a defense to it, kind of the reverse of when parents try to shelter their kids from every sickness and the child never develops a proper immune system and constantly gets sick later in life as a result. I`m not a doctor or bacteria scientist but that my two cents.

    Standard report format. Apparently scary facts = 99% of story. Last 1% = "Actually nothing to worry about" or "We may never be sure if this is safe".

    If your pillow was less than 2 years old the daily mail would brand you a pedophile for sleeping with it anyway, it`s a no win situation.

    There`s a slight mistake in the text. Where it says "Dr Tucker, principal clinical scientist at Barts’ vascular unit" it should say "Dr Tucker, principal clinical scientist at SleepAngel marketing department"
