If you’ve spent any time online this week, you’ve probably heard about the guy who claims his other half was ‘mad’ at him when he showed The Yellow Pillow.
Who was the man who exposed her girlfriend’s yellow pillow?
While it’s hardly the most bizarre story you’ve heard this week (that one was debunked, don’t worry), the lad, who goes by the name Cam, stirred a lively debate after admitting to having the filthy item.
What did he do?
Cam published a photo of his severely yellowed pillow in a now-viral post on X, formerly known as Twitter, and added, “Gf is mad at me because I have revealed to her The Yellow Pillow.” I’m sure you’re all aware that this item is magical.
“It’s not my fault the pillow is yellow and bestows upon me the most peaceful slumber.”
And it turns out that there are a lot of other Yellow Pillow fans who came to the comments to support him, while some felt the whole thing was horrible. I’ll leave it to you to decide where you fall on that spectrum.
One person noted that they ‘legit haven’t rested comfortably since’ losing their devoted Yellow Pillow, while another stated their ‘life has been a downward spiral’ since losing theirs.
A third person said that part of being a male was ‘using the same pillow from the age of 10 and never washing it’.
What, however, causes a pillow to turn yellow? There are several causes for this, but almost all of them boil down to moisture.
Why does it happen?
First and most obviously, sweat. When you sweat during the night, it soaks into your pillow, turning it a saffron color.
Along with this, your spit and drool, as well as the natural oils in your skin and hair, might contribute to the yellowing of your pillows.
Furthermore, if you have a regular skincare routine, the oils, lotions, and creams you use before bed may cause your pillow to turn yellow.
How to deal with it?
Time magazine also warns that if you want to maintain your pillow cases as clean and white as driven snow, you need to make sure your hair is completely dry before going to bed, as wetness from your hair can result in a yellow pillow.
