Bed pillows, on average, should be changed every year if you sleep on them every night, or every two years if you sleep on them periodically. Over time, they can become a breeding ground for dust mites, creating an unhealthy sleep environment in your bedroom. But what to do with your old pillows? Use the old filling to freshen the pet bed your dog sleeps on. Simply wash the pillows and tumble dry them in the dryer; rip open the pillow and use the fill to replace the old fill in the dog bed.
