A woman shared on TikTok that she recently found out her boyfriend hadn’t washed his pillows in 10 YEARS. According to Consumer Reports you should wash your pillow twice a year.
After she confronted him with that info he still refused to replace or wash the decade old pillows. So she cleaned them… and shared the results with her followers on the social media platform.
The woman explained that first she put them in the bathtub with some dishwasher tablets, and then added Borax and some bleach. After soaking she used a mop to wring out the dirt and then finally put them in the washing machine. The results were astonishing, and they actually looked as clean as new, although she noted, "He probably won't notice... but I can sleep better knowing those nasty pillows are clean."
Regardless of the final product, the man’s gross pillows resulted in more than a few comments from users.
- "With that alone, I would replace the boyfriend,” one noted. “Hygiene is everything."
- Another added, “They are meant to be replaced every two years... They come with expiry dates on them..."
