I have a fancy homemaker-type tip for you today. Hold on to your seats, friends, because I’m straight bringing it today. And you won’t find this on Pinterest—it’s that original. Of course, if you’re one of those poised and purposefully polished people, you’ll probably want to stop reading now; we are obviously not cut from the same cloth.
Imagine you’ve just moved and still have a ridiculous multitude of boxes waiting to be unpacked. You know where the sheets are, but somehow the pillowcases didn’t end up in the same place. (This phenomenon is not so different from the mystery of the widowed socks.)
Sleeping without a pillowcase is not, and should never be, an option. Even thoroughly washing your face before bedtime doesn’t guarantee makeup or grime won’t have survived. If the room is a little too warm, you risk head sweat. And let’s be honest, there’s no telling what mites and things are living in your pillow, no matter how clean you are—it’s gross, just try not to think about it.
So pillowcases are MIA. What to do, what to do?
Grab a clean t-shirt (gent’s size large seems to do the trick) and drop your pillow inside.
That’s it. Problem solved. You’re welcome.
