Pillows - Testing to see if they Need Replacing

Down Pillow

I found some information the other day about how to test whether your pillows needs replacing. Here is the essence of the advice:

For all natural pillows:
Fold the pillow in half (a king size pillow in thirds) then release it. A "good pillow" will release and bounce back into shape.

For all synthetic pillows:
Follow directions as above but put a 10 ounce weight on top. A clean tennis shoe is about the right weight. Then take the shoe off the pillow. If the pillow is OK it will release.
