18 HOUSEHOLD ITEMS YOU NEVER KNEW HAD EXPIRATION DATES

Nothing lasts forever, and no, we’re not talking about your most recent ex—we’re talking about consumer products you use everyday that you didn’t know weren’t supposed to last forever, like towel, shoes, and even car seats. Here, we’ve listed 18 things you didn’t know have expiration dates. Whoops!

BEDROOM

Pillows: 2-3 years
Think about it. You sleep with your pillow every night. You pull it, punch it, and roll it until you are comfortable. This natural wear and tear can cause the pillow to lose its shape and leads to neck pain from lack of support. It also becomes a home for dust mites
Slippers: 6 months
Slippers are cozy footwear to change into after a long day in heels and uncomfortable shoes. Unfortunately, they are also a fitting environment for the spreading of fungal infections. Therefore, be sure to wash your slippers as often as possible. Many types can be cleaned easily in the washing machine or by hand.
BATHROOM

Sponge: 2 weeks & Shower Pouf: 6 months
Shower utensils can breed fungus and mold. Don’t use expired sponges and poufs to clean your body! For natural and synthetic shower poufs, boil them in hot water to kill growing bacteria.
Towel: 1-3 years
Do you wash and machine dry your towels after every bath and shower? It’s more probable you hang them on a hook to air dry. These damp towels are an optimal environment for bacteria growth. Routinely washing towels after they fermented in their wet state won’t solve the problem.
Toothbrush: 3 months
We all know we are supposed to replace our toothbrushes when the bristles begin to wear down. You should also buy a new on after a cold or a bout of flu to prevent you from getting sick again from the germs.
