Anyone know what's this on my pillow?

We stored this pillow along with some others in a plastic container in my closet for a few months, and now all the pillows have these weird black marks on the pillow case and on the pillows themselves. Anyone have any ideas on what this is?

Really badly written letters.

But seriously, even stored in plastic containers.. humidity can still get in there, and depending on the fabric, could be mold.

Have you tried washing them yet? Does it come off?
If not, I wouldn't risk it, trash them.

Mold. Dampness. moisture, humidity over long periods will do it every time. Remove the case flip it inside out. It's mold.

All the spots are concentrated in center, a bit south of that, exactly where you would place your head and neck. It is likely oil and mold from the cover (if it wasn't washed) or from the pillow itself.

You will need to wash the pillow and the cover to get rid of it. Changing the cover wont be safe.

If it looks like a mold, grows like a mold, and smells like a mold, then it probably is a mold.
