Is your toothbrush more than four months old? And how about your contact lens case? Health 24 released an interesting article about the four items you should be replacing on a regular basis. 

These and other everyday essentials need regular replacing - no matter how comfortable you are with them.


The most important personal item you should replace on a regular basis is your toothbrush. Your toothbrush should be replaced every three to four months. 


Your contact lens case should also be replaced every three months. 

To take proper care of your contact lens case, rinse the case with fresh lens solution, shake out excess liquid, and leave the empty case open to air dry.


Sunscreen? Yes, don't use your sunscreen after the expiry date.  


According to the National Sleep Foundation, it suggests that every one to two years you should replace your pillow, especially if it hasn't been protected from dust mites.

Washing helps, but first, check the instructions label before washing.
