David Woolfson was in the Mooney studio back in December 2011 telling us about his PILLOW! It’s a very special pillow, and he says he wouldn’t sleep with any other pillow!
David is the founder of SleepAngel pillows, an Irish company who make special pillows that are a barrier to viruses, moulds, bacteria and allergens. And at the time David ‘grossed’ us all out with tales of the nasty things that live inside our old pillows.
He’s back today because we are conducting an experiment to find ‘Ireland’s Dirtiest Pillow’. We want you, our Mooney listeners, to pick out your oldest, lumpiest, most-stained and disgusting pillow. Then send us in a photo of you holding the pillow, along with a brief history of the pillow!
We’re then going to pick 25 lucky listeners, and SleepAngel are going to send a DPD courier to take away your dirty pillow and replace it with a brand new SleepAngel pillow worth €69!
And that’s not all. Have you ever wondered what is living inside your pillow? Your pillow will be sent to the Airmid Laboratories in Trinity College to SEE what sort of nasty residents your pillow has – and you’ll get a full report back! And for the owner of the absolute dirtiest pillow, we've a fabulous break to Cliff House Hotel in Ardmore!
Bruce Mitchell, Consultant Clinical Immunologist and Allergist at the Blackrock Clinic is also here. Bruce is involved with Airmid in Trinity College and will be looking through the 25 dirtiest pillows!

Ireland's Dirtiest Pillows Competition!
We want you to send us in a photo of yourself holding your ‘minging-ist’ pillow.
It must be at least 2 years old.
Strip off your pillowcases and choose your lumpiest, your bumpiest, and your most-stained pillow.
E-mail the photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will pick out 25 listeners and DPD will send a courier to your home to pick up your old pillow, and replace it with a brand new SleepAngel pillow worth €69.
Your old pillow will be air-sealed and sent to the Airmid Laboratories in the Trinity Enterprise Campus.
We will be broadcasting LIVE from the Airmid labs on May 3rd and we’ll be looking into your pillows, to see all the microscopic nasties that the naked eye can’t see.
When they are all checked we will finally declare 'Ireland’s Dirtiest Pillow'!
And, to reward the winner for having slept on something so rotten for so long, SleepAngel will give you enough SleepAngel pillows for your entire house AS WELL AS an overnight stay for two in the luxurious Cliff House Hotel in Ardmore, complete with breakfast and dinner!
So get your pillow photos into us BEFORE 5PM THIS FRIDAY. And don’t forget to give us a brief history of how old the pillow is, who slept on it over the years… that sort of thing!
