Spring is here! Well, it’s not technically here but considering the aisles are full of giant chocolate Easter bunnies (it should really be illegal to have any candy-pushing holiday less than 6 months prior to bikini-season) and colorful plastic eggs, spring might as well be here. You know what that means. Well, yes, you do have only a few weeks before it’s time to hit the beach and the pool and show off your pasty white wintery body, but we are talking spring cleaning. It’s not an exciting task, but someone has to do it, and it’s time you learn what you really need to delve into when it’s time to start the spring cleaning.
All right, so it isn’t technically a spring cleaning deal but the general rule is that you should replace your toothbrush at least every 3 months. Think about all the germs and bacteria growing in that old thing if you don’t. To make this easier to remember, make it a habit to change out your toothbrush at the change of every season, and voila; it’s now a spring cleaning practice.
Get your mind out of the gutter and pick up some double A’s. It’s time to replace the batteries in all your important household items, such as your smoke detectors and your carbon monoxide detector. Put this on your spring cleaning list right now and make it a yearly habit. This is not something you want to forget, ever.
Your eye shadow, mascara and eyeliner need to go. Their shelf lives aren’t that long and if you cannot remember the last time you got rid of them; get rid of them. Your eye makeup is about as germ infested as a room full of toddlers with runny noses, sneezes and the desire to lick and suck on every toy in the room after watching all their friends do it first.
If you tend to spend more time in your Jimmy Choos than in your tennis shoes, you probably don’t need to worry but if you’re a hard core tennis shoe wearing workout-aholic, you get about a year out of your tennis shoes. After that they no longer offer you the support and protection you really need.
It’s gross; enough said.
