Science has just found a pillowcase has more bacteria on it than a toilet!

It turns out your pillowcase could have a lot more in common with a toilet than you would think ...

And yes, you read that right ...

Following a study - which had scientists collect swabs from various locations around a house like a toilet, bed, fridge and couch before they were then sent off for testing - Amerisleep has found that after one week, your pillowcase contains 17,442 times more bacteria than a toilet seat!

And it gets worse.

After two weeks, the material you put your face on for eight hours a night accumulates 332 times more bacteria than a tap handle.

So what would happen after four weeks?

Your pillowcase will then have 39 times more bacteria than a pet bowl!

Time to change our sheets more regularly!
