I Loves Me Some Bamboo
I just added a couple of new pillows to the inventory of the Arx. I had the hideous revelation that two of the pillows I've had on the bed are really no more than half a pillow's worth of feathers. I was even using a folded up mattress pad to bulk up the pillow stack. Absurd. So I stuffed one of the half pillows into the pillowcase of the other half pillow and got the mattress pad the hell off the head of the bed.
Of course all this is driven by my good, good friends at Amazon.com who have become quite expert at separating me from my gelt. They offered a two-pillow set of gel-filled pillows at a price I could not pass up. Gel filled? I hear you say. Yes, so it seems. They feel no different from other, non-down filled pillows I've had in the past. I'll see how they hold up over time. Probably better than down-filled ones when it comes time to launder them.
It's laundry that concerns me of course. There may be a pillow in my house that has not seen the inside of my washing machine but I doubt it. Pillows are truly remarkable collectors of facial oil yellowing. Epic collectors. Even though they can be cleaned, it behooves one (your assignment is use "behooves" in conversation on Friday) to put pillows first in "protectors" and then into pillow cases. So, what does this have to do with bamboo?
I shopped my local Bed, Bath & Beyond (over priced but a really, really great place to shop for the kitchenly-inclined and use the coupons!) for protectors and cases. I found that pillowcases made of bamboo fabric were on sale. I know bamboo is used to make fabric but now I get to put the grassy cloth to the acid test. Oh yeah, they are green. I'm all about the green.
