Research shows that a variety of serious health problems, including heart disease, stroke, arthritis and chronic infections can be associated with a hygienic toothbrush.
A study by Manchester University found that the average toothbrush contains 10 million germs, including a high percentage of potentially fatal bacteria such as staphylococci, streptococcus, E. coli and candida.
You can not see the development of germs, but the hair brush that is damaged can be a harbor for bacteria. Replace toothbrushes every three months.
2. Bath towels
Bath towels should be washed once a week in temperatures 90 degrees Celsius or more to eliminate Staphylococcus aureus, a bacterium that can migrate from the skin to the towel. Usually benign, but can cause infection if contact with the wound and also can live on dry surfaces.
Bath towels can be used indefinitely if always be washed once a week at high temperatures without damage.
3. Pillows and blankets
Pillows and blankets are rarely cleaned or washed can be a nest of dust mites can aggravate eczema, asthma, mainly because the face touching the pillow. Dust mites also make people more prone to rhinitis (nasal congestion) and sinusitis.
In a study by the University of Worcester, 10 blankets typically analyzed and scientists discovered that the quilt contains up to 20,000 dust mites along with bacteria and fungal spores.
Wash your pillow every few months at the temperature 60 degrees Celsius for at least 20 minutes. If you have asthma or allergies, you should use hypoallergenic pillows, which are usually made of foam. While the blanket should be washed every six months.

Do not put wooden spoons in the dishwasher, let alone regularly or routinely, as they may crack and become a ‘paradise’ for bacteria. Instead, soak in disinfectant for about half an hour and then wash with soapy water is boiling.
Replace after five years, but earlier if the wood cracks or if any part becomes soft or dark, as this could mean that the wood has rotted and become a nest of bacteria.
