You may think that you are keeping your house clean but are you cleaning or even replacing these kitchen items properly?

Tea-Towels - EatHealthyLiveFit.comTea Towels
CLEAN: This may vary depending how you use your tea-towels, but they should be washes at least once or twice a week. You should have 2 tea-towels in use at one time. One should be for drying your hand only and one for wiping and cleaning up benches and water, within your kitchen.
As with Bathroom Towels, you should have plenty of spare tea-towels, for rotations between washing days.
REPLACE: Not too often; just judge by their stains, or rattiness. After many washes tea-towels will wear out and need to be replaced.

Sponges - EatHealthyLiveFit.comSponges
CLEAN: Rinse and wring out your sponges everytime you are finished washing dishes. Also do this before washing your dishes. The time between washings, the sponge can still collect germs, as it will be slightly damp. If you can reduce the amount of germ breeding and spreading, that is always a bonus.
REPLACE: You should replace your kitchen sponges every 2 weeks.
