What is the best pillow to buy? I love sleeping on fluffy pillows but every time I buy one, they always seem to go flat after a few months. I have bought the cheap ones for $2.50 and also the more expensive ones for $10. All of them seem to loose shape and go flat. Do you have any suggestions?
I bought a pillow from JC Penney that is a solid foam material. It was expensive, but I just love my pillow! It hasn't gone flat at all, like the polyester filled pillows often do.

You can also combine two flat pillows into one by placing them together in the same pillowcase. (03/30/2006)
As above, I just spritz them with my favorite scent and pop them in the dryer with a couple of clean tennis balls that I use only for the dryer! Works great! (03/30/2006)
Take your feather pillows out into the sun on a dry/sunny day. Leave them in the sun for a few hours. They will rise like yeast rolls. When my mother was a girl one of her chores was to take the feather mattress overlays and pillows outside and sun them. (03/31/2006)

I always keep 2 tennis balls in the laundry room. They are great to put in with king size sheets to keep them from rolling into a ball. For pillows, spray with Febreze and put into dryer with 2 tennis balls on no heat. They fluff like new and smell great. (04/01/2006)
Whatever happened to the 'good old-fashioned way' of just hitting them on the sides and top repeatedly then smoothing them out on the bed when making the bed? (03/13/2008)
