(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - When it comes to the lifespan of your pillow, do you know how often it should be replaced?

The director at the Sleep to Live Institute says pillows should be replaced about every six months.

And it's not just about the support, but also your health. Pillows collect critters and debris right where you lay your face down night after night. Dirt, oil and dead skin cells can get trapped, which can lead to acne.

And dust mites like to hang out in the crevices, creating a potential problem for people with allergies.
