Life is all about creating better habits and a more suitable environment. After all, we are human beings with our minds and bodies. So, we constantly seek minor adjustments in our surroundings to become better persons and feel cozier in our awake lives.
Remember the times when you were refurnishing your living room or adding some essential pieces like candles, cushions, blankets or plants, to feel more calm and relaxed. We often tend to pay attention to everything else in our surroundings, except our sleeping equipment. However, pillows and blankets are indeed some of the top used home accessories, as we use them every single night. Furthermore, think about a T-shirt that has been on all day. It ends up in a washing machine, right? But do you remember, when was the last time you washed your pillows and a blanket?
Pillows and blankets can define a lot of how we sleep. And sleep determines how we feel when we are awake. That’s why, when making adjustments in our surroundings, we should also turn our gaze on our sleeping equipment.
How often should you replace your sleeping equipment?
The lifespan of your pillows and blankets depends on the quality and material they are made of. For example, most experts recommend replacing pillows every 1 to 2 years. But if you have a pillow made of long-lasting inner material and with fine coating, it’s OK and more sustainable to replace it less often.
Blankets usually last longer but can lose their quality and isolation benefits over time. Therefore, regular blankets should be replaced every five years. For more information, you should check manufacturers’ guidelines.
General washing guidelines
To keep your sleeping equipment fresh and clean, it is recommended to wash your pillow every 3-6 months and a blanket 1-2 times a year. Most blankets and pillows need to be cleaned at a professional laundry service. But again, check the guidelines because some of the pillows and blankets can also be washed at home with a domestic washing machine.

Weighted blankets, thin blankets, 2-person blankets, 1-person blankets, low pillows, high pillows, standard pillows, extra-wide pillows, memory foam pillows, down pillows, ergonomic pillows, allergy-free pillows, cooling pillows.
