That is why it is really important to look at some useful tips regarding household items, in order to make life easier for you and your family.

We present to you 8 household items that we must not use for too long.

1. Shelf life water filters

While many think that water filters get clean with every use, this is not true. If they are not replaced in time, they can become a breeding ground for bacteria, and it is recommended by experts that they be changed every 6 months.

2. Shelf life for the iron

Although someone may wonder how iron can have a shelf life, believe us it can. You have noticed that not all irons are designed to last 10 years or more, but in many cases, you get a 1-year warranty for the iron, and after the warranty expires you notice that the iron heats less, it takes more time, destroys your clothes, it just doesn’t work, but it should. It is a sign to replace it, not to repaired.
