- How long do pillows take to dry naturally? It takes a pillow approximately one hour to be dried in a dryer, and potentially several hours of leaving the pillow to air dry. Regardless of the drying method your pillow requires, you must ensure it is completely dry before using it again. Leaving your pillow damp encourages the growth of mold and bacteria.
- How long can you leave a hot tub empty? Usually, 10 to 14 days. It will not freeze overnight. Leave the cover securely fastened in the event of a power outage and keep the cabinet door shut. Additionally, you could put a light bulb or space heater in the cabinet around the mechanicals to buy a few more days.
- How long is firefighter bunker gear good for? NFPA 1851, the standard that establishes requirements for the selection, care, and maintenance of structural firefighting protective clothing and equipment, dictates gear that is 10 years past its manufacture date should be retired.
