Default Bed mattresses.

I heard on the radio today we are suppose to get new mattresses every 5 years. I thought to myself I have pillows older than that. One of my xmas gifts is to get new pillows for the ones I have are close to the thickness of a pancake. Any of you change your mattresses every 5 years?

They should still be okay at 5 years. I would say more like 10+ years. I have a Spring Air pillowtop mattress that is 15 years old and is still in good shape. No tears and no sagging.

I heard that 8 years is the maximum even if its still sturdy and cushy its still collecting body sweat therefore creating bacteria which bring with it bedbugs.

And dust mites!!! Ewww gross. Maybe the mattress stores are just trying to scare us into buying new ones! Do they care about us getting bedbugs and dust mites or do they just want to make a sale?

The only time I really nervous about sleeping on a mattress, is when it is someone else's mattress. I am tad squeamish about hotels, but i keep my underwear on. I am sure they add bleach but sometimes you wonder how clean the sheets are. Fortunately I have done NO time in jail. Wouldn't like their beds.

I have no idea how old my mattress is, but it's a lot older than 5 years.

Well look at it this way, you can wash your bedsheets as many times as you like but how do go about washing a mattress? Its a tad big to fit in a washing machine.

Yeah well you have a point I guess. But because of the bedsheets our bodys never directly touch the mattress anyway. And if you are a clean person and people who share your bed are clean IDK I never thought about bed bugs or dust mites till all that stuff came up about it a few years ago. I'm more likely to get a new mattress if my back starts to hurt and I attribute it to the mattress not being firm anymore before I would replace it for sanitary reasons. The one we have is over 10 I know that, it's still in pretty good shape. And we don't get itchy or any skin conditions!

Sorry Bonnie Girl.... it does not matter how clean you are or how often you wash your sheets or pillow cases......
IF your mattress is 10 years old YOU HAVE dust mites!!! That's a FACT........ itchy or not... THEY ARE THERE....



HOPE YOU CAN SLEEP TONIGHT NOW!!

You mean every night as I go to sleep I might be resting my head on a feces infested pillow?

Just make sure it's the back of your head touching the pillow.... you don't want it near your nose, eyes or ears......
