Hi steelwindmachine,

Frankly, if you have any ideas on what to do with low-use memory foam pillows, I'm all ears.


Outside of maybe using them for a guest bedroom or giving them away to someone who may like them more than you do ... if you are feeling adventurous you could buy a new pillow casing (or open up the ones you have and reuse them or sew your own) and remove the material in your pillows and experiment with it in combination with other pillow stuffing materials to make a new pillow that you may like better. Some sources for DIY pillow materials are at the end of the DIY reference post here .

I have to agree with Phoenix. Great insights. I have been in the Mattress and Pillow retail side for 8 years and most recently, 2.5 years ago in the Pillow Manufacturing. This came about due to the frustration from our customers who came in looking for a great pillow to match their mattress. The foam and latex versions work for some and for most, they don't. Lots of returns, frustration and bad nights sleep. Folks don't like the smell, heat, and loft/height.

I started designing pillows that put the power back in the customer/sleeper. What we found out is Most manufactures don't care about you getting the right pillow the first time. They want volume. They want you to try their zero loft, 1 loft, 2 loft, etc. Key is make many different versions and sell lots and maybe the sleeper will find what they are looking for.

After listening to 6 years worth of customers explaining their needs and desires to fit their amazing mattresses (regardless of style, type or brand) we designed our own

*Organic Cotton Stretch Cover: The most comfortable cool sleeping orderless cover we have found over the years.
*Natural Fills. Either choose Natural Latex Noodles, Natural Kapok Silk or a combination of the two. These are cool sleeping, odorless, and have natural benefits. Each style has its own unique feel. Blend is the most popular nationwide as the kapok seems to mix the best with latex noodles to provide support and feel most desired.

customers love them because they get to make them the way they want.

Maybe this will help. I should send Phoenix one to get his feedback.

Hi VRNaturals,

Thanks for your comments.

I edited parts of your post to remove any links and the parts that were "promotional" or "advertising" because they are against the rules of the forum but I do appreciate your more generic comments about pillows (which is why I didn't delete the entire post).

I also deleted your other two posts as well (one was a duplicate of this one and one was just a link to your site).

I should send Phoenix one to get his feedback.


Thanks for the offer but I don't accept any products for "reviews" because my own specific needs and preferences may be very different from someone else and because I am the owner of this site my own preferences (and they wouldn't be any more than my own personal preferences) would have an undue influence on other people's buying decisions.

Having said that ... I do like pillows with shredded latex or latex "noodles" and I also like pillows with a mix of latex and kapok (although not as much as just the latex by itself).
