We all Love Loofahs.... after a long day the bath sponge makes your personal shower time feel even more personal, beautiful and relaxing... but to everything there are some hazzards... i did some research on the bath sponge and there are a few things i learnt that is worth sharing

How often do you replace your bath sponge??? some of us cant even remember because as long as it stays in its perfect pretty shape its still usable... and even when they unravel we use them still... its a mistake many of us make

by keeping a bath sponge for too long or not properly cleaning it after used we Create a home for bacteria to grow, a home that touches our body daily... this bacteria can cause rashes and skin infections

Bacteria thrives and grows in  moist, warm and dark places...making your bathroom the optimum place so changing your bath sponge regularly will keep bacteria and mold at bay... but how often should we change our sponges to prevent being victim to the unseen????

 

******heres some info i collected on how to clean out your bath sponge and how long you should keep it

 

^^After using your sponge each day, you should wring it out to remove excess water and hang it in a well-ventilated area to dry. Remember that synthetic, or human-made, materials will dry faster than natural ones, like loofahs or sea sponges. Dermatologists recommend that you throw out a loofah after three to four weeks, since it easily grows bacteria in its crevices, and by that time will have lost some of its exfoliating properties. You should toss a mesh bath pouf, which is more resistant to bacteria, after eight weeks [sources: CreanFitness Magazine]. If you want to be extra cautious, you can also disinfect your bath sponge every few days.

 

^^Cleaning your loofah is actually rather easy, but not many people that own one actually do it. (Big no-no if you're trying not to get sick!) About once a week, perhaps twice, fill a clean disinfected basin or your bathroom sink with some hot water, hydrogen peroxide, and a splash of white vinegar. Let it soak for about an hour, and then squeeze dry, shaking off any access water.

 

MY RECOMMENDATION

****Using a face towel in the shower which you can throw into the washing machine after a shower is still the safest way to go!!! 

 

 

its a fact Ladies, Bacteria is EVERYWHERE and on EVERYTHING we are exposed to daily but we can still be cautious on how much we expose ourselves to them

 

Be beautifully blessed
