I never thought that these household items come with an expiry date. It’s hilarious because I thought they last forever. Or, as long as they rip apart.
Did you know that you need to change your pillows every two years? – Yep. They come with an expiry date of two to three years.
I’ve been using mine for approximately five years, and I don’t mind. It’s my favorite, and my head perfectly fits on it. I tried replacing it with another pillow, but it wasn’t even close to it.
Plus, I don’t lie about it too much. I use my husband as a pillow. If you know what I mean.

With regards to the fire extinguisher very often the law requires them to be serviced regularly( depending on local laws), usually once a year. It’s worth finding out how often they must be serviced especially with regards to insurance. If your house burns down an unserviced fire extinguisher is just the excuse your insurance company will need to not approve your claim. So yes, a fire extinguisher will last 15 years but you must still service it regularly.
