There are many things in our house that we must renew regularly for our health, although it may not seem like it. The kitchen towelsmops and scouring pads do not last forever, objects that we mostly use to clean our house, they also need to follow a specific cleaning process and when necessary, a replacement.

How often should we renew the rags?
Know when it’s time for a change it’s a matter of common sense, it is enough to observe the state of our rags -if they have stains that do not go away with washing, deterioration in the fabric or even some other torn- it is time to renew them. In addition, as it is a textile that we use in the kitchen, where we must be especially careful with bacteria, no expense should be spared.
The times will also depend on the quality of our rags and the dedication that we put into clean or disinfect. For example, when we talk about microfiber cloths, they are usually more resistant than cotton ones but, nevertheless, they are somewhat delicate and, if they touch the bleach, they lose quality (unlike cotton ones).
In addition to good maintenance, it is advisable to have more than one rag for each thing -one to dry the crockery and another for the worktop, for example- in this way we extend the useful life of both and avoid moving bacteria from one place to another. With all this, there is no correct answer to renew kitchen rags, it is enough to be observant and if they are very damaged, change them without giving it more thought.
