These are few of several other uses of pillows. You might find several individual uses of them. If you are not tall enough for a chair for instance, you may use a pillow to rest on and seat yourself to an appropriate height for example.
A pillow with a cotton filling is another kind. Such pillows are usually flatter than the other pillows, but they don't hold their shape and take the form of your head. Nowadays, cotton pillows are a choice of many people, as they confess their body rests better in its natural position with their help. If you prefer to sleep on this type of pillows it's better to change it instead of washing it. Cotton pillows become too flat with the weight of the body after some time. As a result, a pillow becomes water soaked when washed that makes a breeding ground for mold.
Other vital traits of a good bed pillow that you should keep in mind are the firmness, size and the maintenance level the pillow requires. When it comes to size the standard pillow is for single or twin bed, the medium size is for queen size bed while the large ones are designed for king size beds. As for pillow maintenance, cotton and synthetic fiber pillows are the easiest to clean and are the most durable.
If your choice turns out to be a cotton filled pillow you should replace it when needed rather than washing it. Because over time cotton pillows will become very dense because of the body weight that is constantly put on them. And remember cotton pillows are very affordable so replacing them when needed is worth the cost to avoid health problems that can be directly related to breathing in mold.
Based on body measurements and personal preference, the pillow should maintain a height of 4 to 6 inches, properly supporting the head and neck (and shoulders when lying on your back).
Another problem pillow buyers face is that of buying a foam pillow or a feather one. The main difference between these two is that foam pillows hold their shape better but they are not as comfortable as feather ones. Feather pillows are much softer and fluffy but you may find that every morning your pillow has lost its shape during the night and has transformed into something completely different that needs a shake to get it back to how it was. You will also need to be careful when buying feather pillows and ensure that any pillow you buy is hypo-allergenic to make sure it doesn't set off any allergies you may have.
