YOUR TOOTHBRUSH:

For the most hygienic and effective cleaning, experts recommend starting fresh every three to four months or when you notice the bristles becoming frayed. In addition, you should consider getting a new toothbrush sooner if you have been sick, especially if the toothbrush is stored close to other toothbrushes.    

SHOWER LOOFAH:

The synthetic mesh you use to get your body clean can also be a breeding ground for bacteria.  Hanging it to drip-dry will help, but you'll still want to swap in a fresh one every two months.  

KITCHEN SPONGE:

Microbiologists have found that kitchen sponges can harbor 82 billion bacteria per cubic inch - and the strongest bugs survived even after the sponge was microwaved.  Toss and replace every one to two weeks.  Remember sponges can also be placed in dishwasher to help keep them clean and fresh.
