In this article we will make a roundup of some objects of daily use. Most of these items are for hygiene and cleaning purposes, so it’s important to change them frequently.
Here is exactly how often some items we use every day must be changed in order not to run into health problems.
Dental hygiene products
How often should the toothbrush be changed
The Italian Society of Periodontology and Implantology suggests changing the toothbrush every two or three months. The bristles wear out even before they are damaged and this decreases the effectiveness in removing plaque. They could also damage the gums.
How often to replace the electric toothbrush heads
The timing is more or less the same as for toothbrushes. The American Dental Association recommends a duration of between three and four months.
How often to change the interdental brush
The brush is a very important tool for dental interstices and must absolutely be changed every ten days.
How often to replace the razor
A disposable razor lasts a maximum of eight shaves. In any case, never exceed 10 shaves because, as the manufacturers and the British magazine Metro make clear, the blade gradually dulls.
Consequently, it presses harder on the skin and can create lesions or cuts. In any case, it is necessary to check, even before the eight shaves, if the razor has any residual rust between the blades that we cannot remove. In this case, let’s get rid of it even before the eight uses.
Of course, the same goes for women’s razors as well.
Make up products
How often to change the beauty blender
The famous makeup sponge has an expiration date and a shelf life of three months. The danger is precisely that of bringing thousands of bacteria on the face, giving a valid help to acne that will make sparks.
Furthermore, it is absolutely recommended to wash it with liquid hand soap each time it is used and let it dry in the open air.
Household cleaning products
How often to replace the mop
According to many Italian cleaning and disinfection companies, a mop cannot exceed two months of life and must be washed in the washing machine at 60 ° at least every two floor washes. Like rags and cotton cloths, these cleaning tools are a real home of bacteria. We must be careful not to get dirt on the floors first.
How often to replace the toilet brush
Although we do a proper maintenance with bleach, every now and then the toilet brush needs to be replaced. At least every six months we have to change it. This is the authoritative opinion of Henry Paterson, chief operating officer of Housekeep, an English search engine dedicated to cleaning experts and companies.
If we have a bathroom furniture line, it is not necessary to change the toilet brush holder with all the accessories.
Just peel off the white plastic part with the bristles and buy a replacement. Let us remember that it must be thrown into dry waste.
Here, then, how often you absolutely have to change some objects that we use every day in order not to run into health problems.
