Bathroom Items to Replace More Frequently

Bathrooms are one of the most frequently used areas in the home. They offer a relaxing space to wash your face, brush your teeth, begin the day, and a comforting escape to take a bath, perform skincare routines, and prepare for bed at night. Since the area is frequented so often, you must create a space you truly love and can relax in after a long day.

Your bathroom consists of a lot of items and accessories. Some can last for years, while others should be replaced on a more regular basis. Keep reading to learn more about the bathroom items you should be replacing more frequently.

Loofahs and Body Sponges

We all know that the wet environment of the bathroom can lead to bacteria, mildew, and even mold growth. While some homeowners leave their loofahs and body sponges in the shower for extended periods without replacing them, we urge against it!

Loofahs should be trashed after three weeks; any longer is a bacteria haven waiting to happen. Think about it: you don't want to wash your body with a dirty sponge. Use them for a couple of weeks and then dispose of them in the trash.


While some larger cloths may be used for multiple purposes, if you're washing your face or body with a small cloth, it's a good rule of thumb to use a fresh one each day. Some people use washcloths in the same manner as a loofah, but washcloths are not made of the same material and should be washed in between each use.


This goes without saying, don't forget to swap your toothbrush every three months, as they lose their effectiveness and can become plagued with bacteria over time.

Bath Mats

If you've got a full household with heavy foot traffic, you may want to consider swapping out your bath mats at least once a week. Keep a backup mat for easy swaps and cleaning!
