3. Hand towels
If you want to keep your hand towel hygienic, try to wash it at least once a week. Plus, no matter how often you wash your hand towels, they should be replaced every two years. However, another smart option in these times of uncertainty is using paper towels. “Especially now, paper towels are a safer bet,” says Klimaszewski.
4. Bath mats
In general, bath mats are placed in a moist environment such as bathrooms. So, not replacing your bath mat frequently could translate to mold and mildew exposure. Plus, you could end up with a pretty nasty allergic reaction. Justin Carpenter, owner of Modern Maids, a Dallas-based house cleaning service, says that bath mats should be replaced at least every two years.
