Tip Of The Day!

3 Mar

(my pillow cases by the way – absolutely fantastic). Picked them up at the ICE store in Yorkville, in Toronto. (It no longer exists – the owner decided to keep the store in the US).

Pillowcases that you put your face on every night should be changed and washed every 3 days or so. This will keep the bacteria down to help prevent colds, flu, and acne! If you have pillows in your living rooms that you put your face on, they also need to be washed, or dry cleaned periodically to keep down bacteria.

For fabrics that may not be washed in hot water; just pop it into the freezer for 24 to 48 hours to kill dust mites.

Put your pillow (or pillow cases) in the dryer every night for 10-15 minutes to eliminate any bacteria (or dust mites – yikes!).

Also, I need to get my hands on these:
