12 things you’re not cleaning often enough

I am by no means a clean freak or crazy about germs. That said, though, I try to keep things somewhat clean (not my house, of course!) and change and wash them as needed. Here’s my recommended schedule for those things often forgotten:

Wash/Change Every 3 Uses:

  • Pajamas
  • Bath towels and wash cloths (I also pull the hand towels at the same time)
  • Bras

Wash/Change Once per Week:

  • Bed sheets
  • Kitchen towels and dish rags
  • Pet bedding
  • Garbage disposal

Wash/Change Once Per Month:

  • Bedding – blankets, comforters, quilts, etc.
  • Coffee pot – run white distilled vinegar through, then run water through
  • Humidifier filters (I also rinse them at least once between changes)
  • Dishwasher
  • Washing machine
