Hey Everyone!

5dollarHey Everyone!

You may be cleaning your bathroom every week, but are you taking care of the things we use in the bathroom?

Toothbrushes should be replaced every 3 months, as well as being cleaned in between. Every couple of weeks you can disinfect your toothbrush by putting them in a glass of vinegar to kill all the bacteria. Side note: it is also recommended to keep your toothbrushes out of the cabinet, and in the light because darkness is a breeding ground for bacteria.

But I'm not stopping at out hint 1 and 2 on more items you should be cleaning regularly.

Hint 1: Do you wash your hairbrushes and combs?

Hairbrushes gather all sorts of dirt, oil, and hair product build-up - so they should be cleaned regularly.

Cleaning your brush is easy!

You can use either dish soap or shampoo - your choice.

Holding the handle, swirl the head of the brush around in a bowl of warm water. Next, put a few drops of gentle shampoo on the bristles of a toothbrush and use the toothbrush to scrub the bristles and base of the hairbrush.

Hint 2: How dirty is your toilet brush?

Most people don't think twice about cleaning their toilet brush, but a quick rinse is all that's needed.

Putting the brush right back into the holder after using is big no-no.

Moisture and the fact that the brush has not been washed causes bacteria to grow super fast. All you need to do is rinse the used brush in the clean toilet water, and let it air dry before putting back in its holder.

'Go Green' Hint: Switch baths for showers...

Switching your bath for a shower can make a huge difference. Baths use approximately double the amount of water a shower uses. This not only saves water, but it saves you money on heating the excess water too.
