The Daily Ping

Somehow, Ryan has written over 1 million Pings; Paul, just 60.

We love the Chillow around here, but it’s been a while since we’ve talked about it. I’m still loving mine, but since I haven’t been terribly good about doing the once-a-month maintenance, it’s developed a slightly mildewy smell to it.

A while back, I wrote to the Chillow manufacturer and asked what I could do. For reference, here is what they suggested:

Dear Ryan,

Thank you for your email. It’s so nice to hear from a Chillow(r) fan!

The mildew smell is not really common but when it occurs the Chillow(r) can be washed. Please use your favorite cleaning solution and clean both sides gently and allow to dry completely before use and/or before storage. You can also add a 1/2 capful of bleach to a cup of water and add that mixture to the existing water in your Chillow(r). This should help with any mildew odor.

I hope these suggestions are helpful.

And now you know.

I just followed the links on that. My wife wants one now.

Personally I'm a warm lover. I WANT my pillow warm, I am warm; year round. That makes me a very desirable person in the winter, but I get the ~pardon the pun~ cold shoulder the rest of the year.

Maybe her birthday prezzie might show up early this year. Thanks for the tip.

This is the answer to my prayers. I was actually set on buying another one (and still may do so for my GF), but this might save me a little coin in the process.

For what it's worth, looking at the manufacturer's website, I like the different Chillow variations they have there: Chillow wristrests for the keyboard, the "Canine Cooler" (!)...genius.

Makes me proud to be an American. ;p

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
