Argos Value Range Hollowfibre Pillows
Disadvantages: Cheap and rubbish quality
When I first needed pillows for my bed I needed cheap one's to start off with as funds were incredibly limited indeed to begin with. Having a double bed meant that in my opinion I needed 4 standard pillows for my bed to look comfy and use and when I scouted about for pillows the prices were mental being way too much for my purse!
In the end I spotted these pillows from the Argos 'Value' range and decided that for the time being they would serve my needs....or would they?!
They are available to purchase in a 2 pillow size or a 4 pillow option both in the same packaging and I went for the 4 pack option of course with high hopes!
2 or 4 pillows are laid out in a white and light blue plastic bag. On the front of the bag we are told that they are Argos 'Value Range' Hollowfibre Pillows and on the back of the bag other information listed again tells me that they are, the materials used are stated and contact details for Argos are stated. Economy looking packaging this is but it serve its purpose of course and is informative enough and simple enough to break into.
Well as I have said I got the 4 pack and for me, as soon as I opened these up I was disappointed with them on their appearance alone. Smaller than standard pillows and incredibly thin they looked really economy and felt it too. I shoved my hand under one of the pillows (to the centre) and the edges dipped like the test you do for dust mites and that? Well these flopped totally! They just arnt very filled at all and they are filled sort of patchy feeling inside.
Each cover on the pillow is thin and white and made from 50% cotton and 50% polyester and like I say that is thin cover sort of like paper. Inside they are filled with microfibre polyester but again, not thickly or softly.
I found with these that I may as well not use them and have my head straight on a mattress. They offer no real comfort of support and my head sinks through them giving me neck and back ache. They simply are too thin and feel rubbish and like I said earlier they are in my opinion smaller than other options on the market meaning my standard pillow cases are too large for them making it all look a bit untidy!
They are non-allergenic and machine washable (at 40c) and able to be tumble dried though I did this with a couple of them and through washing the filling within the material clumped up to what felt like hard cotton wool lumps and I never got them to the tumble drier as in my opinion they were knackered and only fit for the bin.
I feel with these I wasted my money and the only way they would come in handy is to 'dress' a bed thats never used, as for using them don't bother! Never again will I skimp on my bedding purchases I learnt a valuable lesson with these!
Size L69, W46cm / L27, W18in
Only available in Argos stores priced at £2.39 for a pack of 2 pillows and £5.19 for a pack of 4 (currently on sale with over a pound off so the usual price will soon go back up to £6.49).
Summary: Not for me, I've replaced mine with top of the range pillows now!
