How to clean pillows

If it is washable, make sure to use a gentle cycle with cold water and a mild detergent. You can either dry your pillow on low heat or just air-dry it. If you’re drying it in the dryer, add some tennis balls to help fluff up the pillow. To prevent any clumping or lumpiness that may occur when washing, put two pillows in the washer instead of one.

Fact

Animals can be insomniacs too. Washington University School of Medicine bred insomniac flies and found their behaviors resembled people with insomnia in many ways.

Myth

Sugar causes headaches.

It’s┬ánot the sugar itself that’s causing your headache; it’s a rapid drop in your blood sugar levels that wreaks havoc on your head. For some people, eating a carbohydrate-heavy meal causes excess production of the sugar-regulating hormone insulin, which in turn makes glucose levels drop and results in that throbbing headache you so often experience after consuming one too many cupcakes.
