Really Yucky Pillow Talk as GMA Investigates Tested 8 Pillows and Found Mold

April 24th, 2017 4:59 PM by Dan Howard

The television show GMA Investigates randomly went to 8 homes to test 8 pillows. The lab that tested the pillows found bacteria, fungus, mold and dust mites. One pillow was found to have fecal coliform.

The problem is that we sweat, drool and deposit dead skin in our pillows every time we use them. This is wonderful food for all of the nasty organic things found on the pillows that were tested.     


Reading/watching this report makes me very glad we just purchased “My Pillows” that can be thrown into the clothes washing machine.  The other option?  Purchase a new pillow every 2 years or less.
