Are you replacing these items frequently enough?

1. Dish sponges. Did you know you should replace your dish sponge every TWO WEEKS?! Sponges accumulate bacteria quickly and need to be replaced often!

2. Toilet brush. It’s recommended to replace your toilet brush every six months, or sooner if you notice the bristles falling out. Prolong the life of your toilet brush by opting for a silicone option like this one!

3. Loofah. It is recommended that your loofah be replaced every one to two months! Replacing your loofah regularly reduces the chance of bacteria causing infections or other skin problems.

4. Toothbrush. It’s recommended that your toothbrush be replaced every three months. It’s around this times that the bristles begin to break down and become less effective at cleaning your teeth.

5. Makeup brushes. It’s recommended that makeup brushes get cleaned every two weeks, and replaced every two years, granted that they’ve been washed regularly!

6. Pillows. Most experts recommend replacing pillows every 1 to 2 years. Doing so helps to ensure that you’re using pillows that are supportive, clean, and free of allergens.
