Now that our lives are getting incredibly more cluttered and with having more “stuff”, the amount of things we have to make sure are kept clean is also increasing.
This takes time and it can also result in certain things being neglected.
Today’s post on how often you should wash your stuff should give you a quick reminder of certain things that might need cleaning, and how often to do it as well.
Bed Sheets – Once A Week
Your bedsheets may appear clean, but chances are that they are not.
You may find this to be over the top, but according to statistics; you should be washing your bed sheets at least once a week – I know it was shocking to us as well.
Pillows / Pillow Sheets – Once A Month
Your pillows and pillow covers should also be kept and maintained, especially considering you will be resting your face on them for 8 hours each and every day.
The recommended washing of sheets should be the very least; once a month.
Windows – Once A Month
This depends on a lot of variables (like the weather and your location) but to make sure your windows are clean, try to do them at least once a month.
Rain and dust (especially in Malta) is a huge variable and sometimes you just can not manage it but that is why we launched our new window cleaning service at Briiz for a regular (and timely) window cleaning.
Oven – Every Time After Use
An oven should be clean and sterilized each and every time it is used.Food particles that spill onto it while cooking will collect bacteria and attract insect so unless you want a few crawlers joining you on your dinner table, it’s best to keep it 100% clean, all the time.

Washer – Every Month
You would’ve thought that something that washes, should be technically clean itself right? Well, you’d be wrong.
Your washing machine also gets dirty with the leftover residue of soapy water and the “dirt” from your clothes so be sure to give this highly used household item a proper cleaning every month or so.
You can see this post on how to clean your washer with little to no effort.
Your Sink / Drain – Everyday
Your sink is where you discard all of your leftover food and wash away the dirt from your kitchen so it’s safe to say that your sink is a “hot spot” for germs – unless of course, you make an effort to clean it out every single day.
Hygiene in the kitchen is super important so making sure your oven and sink (or drain) are clean is of the utmost importance.
Toilet / Bathroom – Twice A Week
While the toilet should be decentralized every day, you can get off washing your bathroom at the very least twice a week.
Two quick weekly scrubs with antiseptic soap should keep your bathroom smelling (and looking) fresh.
Refrigerator – Once A Week
Anything that keeps or stores food needs to be kept sparkling clean and yes, that does include the refrigerator in your kitchen.
Your Car – Once Every Two Weeks
When is the last time you washed your car?
While this is not something that will have a negative impact on your health if it’s not as tidy as it can be, if it’s extremely dirty, then it does become a safety hazard on the road.
We know the weather in Malta doesn’t exactly help with keeping your car clean but if you can find the time to take it to your closest car wash once every week or two, that should be enough.
Here are our tips on car cleaning.
