From hands to hair to clothes to food, keeping things as clean as possible is a very basic, and very essential, part of staying healthy.
But do you really know the what’s, how’s and how often’s of cleaning up?
How Often Should You Wash…Your Face?
Dirt, oil, sweat, makeup and bacteria can prevent your skin from being clear and healthy. In general, you should wash your face twice a day, morning and night, with a cleanser that’s right for your skin type.
How Often Should You Wash…Your Clothes?
This actually depends on the type of clothing. More rugged items, such as jeans and more durable cotton pants and shorts, can be washed less frequently, especially since they’re more germ-resistant, and over-washing can cause them to lose their shape. However, if your jeans are dirty, or you’ve worn them several times, definitely throw them in the washer.
Certain items, such shirts, bras and dresses, can be washed based on how often they’re used.
Other items, such as underwear, should absolutely be washed after each and every use.
How Often Should You Wash…Meat?
Actually, you shouldn’t. Experts say that the risks of washing meat, and thus spreading harmful bacteria, such as Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria monocytogenes, all over your kitchen, outweigh the benefits of trying to clean it prior to cooking.
