- We tend to keep things in the bathroom without knowing that they should no longer stay there
- Sometimes we just don’t know when to replace them
- Experts bared when to replace stuff like loofah, toothpaste, and toothbrush among others
There are a lot of things at home that we tend to keep instead of getting rid of them. Most of these things are the unnoticed, small stuff particularly those placed in the bathroom.
We keep them because we don’t actually know when to throw them away and maybe because we have lost track of how long they have been there. Now let’s try to check what personal hygiene items in the bathroom we should start getting rid of — and when.
According to a report, it must be changed once a month as fungi can build up between the fibers. Perhaps you need to make notes when you started using such as your scrub helper.
Typically, toothpaste should only be consumed for 12 to 18 months. After that, the same report said, the fluoride will begin to lose its power. So there wouldn’t be much use for it anymore. Once a bar soap is exposed to water, it shouldn’t last for years in the bathroom like how it is when unopened. Experts say if it starts to feel mushy, then it’s time to throw it away as it could cause irritations and infections.
Normally, after three months of regular use, a toothbrush must be replaced or when its bristles have become frayed; making it literally useless. Well, could be used to clean shoes or some hard-to-reach corners of your bathroom perhaps.
