A woman was horrified to discover that her boyfriend had left the pillows on his bed untouched, not putting them in the wash once in the last decade
If you thought your significant other wasn’t very good at doing housework or cleaning up after themselves, you might want to hold onto your hat.
That’s because one woman has just made a rather grim discovery about her boyfriend that might make you want to throw up.
The woman recently found out that her partner hadn’t washed his pillows in 10 years.
Yep, you read that correctly, the pillows he lays his head down on for sleep each night had been left untouched for an entire decade. So gross!
After making the disgusting discovery the unnamed woman confronted her boyfriend about it but says he refused to replace the pillows with new ones.
So she decided to give the old, stained ones a good clean.
She filmed the entire cleaning process for a TikTok video, in which she washes three yellowed and filthy pillows, with astounding results.
While her boyfriend was at work, the woman placed them in the bathtub and threw in a couple of dishwasher tablets.
She then added some Borax powder into the water, before pouring in a little bit of bleach and leaving the pillows to soak.
After a little while, the TikToker proceeded to use a mop to wring out the dirt from the pillows before tossing them into the washing machine to remove all the cleaning products and remaining grime.
To her amazement, the pillows came out of the machine looking brand new and brilliantly white.
One they were done she added: “He probably won’t notice… but I can sleep better knowing those nasty pillows are clean.”
The video has since gone viral, being watched over 1.7 million times and leaving users stunned by the transformation of the pillows.
Many were also appalled by their original state and couldn’t hold back their disgust.
One person commented: “With that alone, I would replace the boyfriend. Hygiene is everything.”
Another said: “10 years of sweat, dead skin, dirt, oil and bacteria.”
A third added: “They are meant to be replaced every two years… They come with expiry dates on them…”
