Cleaning is no fun, we all can agree on that but it is necessary, and we all do that, which is true as well. The thing is that we may not do enough of it and it can lead to some serious consequences. You may think that this is kind of mockery since with all those busy lives of yours you devote just enough of your time to cleaning your house.

Well, we are not here to blame you for anything, rest assured. What we are going to share with is the information on how often you should do certain things about the house not only for it to look neat and tidy but for you to feel great. Who knows maybe it will turn out to be not that difficult after all, or maybe you are already doing it anyway. Let us check!
#1 Sheets and bedding
No matter who sleeps in your bed you need to change your sheets at least once a week. The thing is that there are lots of bacteria being transferred to your sheets and pillowcases and as they pile up there they tend to migrate to your bodies and faces again which leads to various skin conditions.
How often do you use your towels? At least a couple of times a day. That leads to the question – how often do you change them? What kind of question is that – they almost do not get dirty since you use them after you just cleaned up! Incorrect! You need to change your towels after three times you used them in order to prevent all possible infections and bacteria from spreading. What is more, you should never share the same towel with anyone!

#3 Makeup brushes
Every woman has at her disposal the least of dozen various makeup brushes, but how often do we clean them? Err, let us guess – never? That is where you are wrong once again; the thing is that together with all the makeup products piling on your brushes there is also all kinds of fats and dirt getting on them from your face and with every time you use your brush you just smear it all over your face. That is why you need to clean your brushes regularly.
#4 Workout sneakers
Many people are attending the gym regularly these days, and while we tend to wash our workout clothes regularly the sneakers we work out in are usually left out, and that is not good. Of course, we are not telling you to place your sneakers into the washing machine every time you get back from the gym – but wiping them clean every time you are done with the workout session is a good thing to do.
#5 Trash can
Your trash can is the place where the most of the germs and bacteria are gathered at. That is why you should not only wash your hands every time you touch that can but also you need to clean the can itself at least once in a fortnight to avoid the bacteria and infection from spreading.

#6 Things you touch every day
There are also things that we touch on a daily basis, such as light switches, door handles, computer keyboard and what not. All those things need to be cleaned regularly so that you keep your house clean and not only the dirt but also the bacteria does not pile up. You should not forget about your phone since that is the thing that you use these days most often so a regular wiping would only serve both of you well.
You are what you eat – and where do you store your food? Of course the fridge! So you should pay attention to the state your fridge is in if you want your food to be fresh and healthy. The thing is that if you do not pay attention to what is inside of your fridge it may just get bad without you even knowing it and it will start poisoning the rest of the things hidden in the fridge. That is why checking your fridge two times a week and cleaning it completely at least once three months is the best you can get to!

#8 Water bottle
If you have a favorite water bottle you like to carry around with you; you should also pay proper attention to the state it is in. The thing is that if you use your bottle on a regular basis the bacteria around its entrance just keep building up and if you do not clean it, it will enter your body as easily and who knows what it may lead to. That is why it is best you clean your bottle after every use.
