Is it bad to sleep on a hard pillow?
Firm: These pillows are often very heavy with practically no give.

What is the lawsuit against my pillow?
Minnesota-based MyPillow, which says it has 1,600 employees and 44 million customers, last year sued for trademark infringement Wixom-based LMP Worldwide, which sells pillows under the name “I Love My Pillow” and has nine employees. Last week, I Love My Pillow denied all the allegations and countersued.
Should my pillow be hard or soft?
While too soft pillows get flattened, over time, with the pressure of the head, the firm ones tend to maintain their loft. Firm pillows ideally provide good support to the head, neck, and back. Stomach sleepers usually prefer soft pillows while side sleepers would prefer a firm one.
Is it better to have a thick or thin pillow?
A pillow that is too thick will tilt the neck and head up and out of alignment, while a pillow that is too-soft or too-thin will tilt it down. Beyond the head pillow, side sleepers may benefit from a thin pillow between the knees that relieves strain and keep the spine straight all the way down to your hips.
Does putting pillows in the dryer fluff them?
Even just running the pillow through the dryer should fluff it up. You could put your pillows in the dryer once a month. Put the tennis ball in a sock, tie the sock at the end, and throw them both in a dryer for a few minutes. The pillow will be fluffed and perfect for a good night’s sleep.
Are firm pillows good for side sleepers?
Side sleepers should choose a thick, firm pillow compared to stomach sleepers who need a thinner one. The best pillow will keep your head and neck aligned when lying down. Any fill from down to foam can work for side sleepers as long as the pillow is thick enough to support your neck.
How do I stop my pillow from being lumpy?
Fix Lumpy Pillows: Beat Them With Tennis Balls Get lumps out of pillows by throwing them in the dryer with tennis balls. The tennis balls will knock out the lumps and fluff your pillows. The tennis ball trick is also great for comforters, too!
Is the My Pillow toxic?
If you’re sleeping on a polyurethane or memory foam pillow, you may want to reevaluate. Unlike natural latex which derives from rubber tree sap, these synthetic foams are man-made and may be off-gassing harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde and benzene.
Does washing a pillow ruin it?
Don’t worry – it is perfectly safe to wash pillows (even down pillows) in the washing machine. Try to wash at least two at once so that the washer is balanced and the pillows don’t get thrown around so much. Add your detergent.
