10 Everyday Household Items You’re Probably Forgetting to Replace

10 frequently used household items that people often forget to replace, especially in properties around Salt Lake City:

  1. Water Filter Replacements: If you use a water filter pitcher, it’s easy to forget about changing the filter. Consider replacing it every few months to ensure clean and fresh water.

  2. Exfoliating Mitts: Regular exfoliation is essential for healthy skin. These mitts help remove dead skin cells and improve circulation. Remember to replace them every few months.

  3. Toilet Cleaning System (ToiletWand): Keep your toilet clean and germ-free by replacing the cleaning heads regularly. It’s a small but crucial task for maintaining hygiene.

  4. Toothbrush Heads: Toothbrushes wear out over time, affecting their effectiveness. Replace your toothbrush head every three months for optimal oral health.

  5. Shower Curtain Liners: Shower curtain liners accumulate mold and mildew. Replace them at least twice a year to maintain a fresh and clean bathroom environment.

  6. Air Filters: In Salt Lake City, where air quality can be affected by seasonal factors, don’t forget to replace your HVAC system’s air filters. Clean filters improve indoor air quality and energy efficiency.

  7. Smoke Detector Batteries: Regularly check and replace batteries in smoke detectors. It’s a simple step that can save lives during emergencies.

  8. Kitchen Sponges: These harbor bacteria and should be replaced frequently. Consider using reusable silicone scrubbers or replace traditional sponges every few weeks.

  9. Pillows: Over time, pillows lose their shape and become less supportive. Replace them every 1-2 years for better sleep quality.

  10. Spices and Pantry Staples: While not physical items, spices and pantry staples have expiration dates. Regularly check and replace old spices to maintain flavor in your cooking.

Remember, staying on top of these replacements contributes to a healthier and more comfortable living environment! 🏡🌟
