What would you say if I told you that your hairbrush has an expiration date? Today’s story may inspire a little spring cleaning. Sit back, relax, and get ready to throw away that old hydrogen peroxide bottle that has been collecting dust in your cupboard, because we’re going to be talking about common household items that have surprising expiration dates.
We’ll start in the bedroom. Old pillows are notorious for causing neck pain and harboring dust mites. After about 2-years, throw those out. Toss your slippers after about 6 months. They become a breeding ground for bacteria.
Next we’ll move to the dresser. Throw brushes out after about a year. Hairbrushes with natural bristles should be replaced sooner, about every 7 to 10 months.
Finally, we will end in the closet. Give your feet and joints a break and treat yourself to some new sneakers. Running shoes last about a year or 250-300 miles.
