Keep or toss? Shelf life of common household items
Many of us have more time to do, well, those things we really don’t enjoy doing.
Cleaning, decluttering and so on and so on.
Shape magazine recently offered a story on the shelf life of common household items.
A quick glance around my bathroom and vanity reveals fragrances that are years old. Same with some eyeshadows and maybe even a blush or two. And we won’t even get into the closet.

But have you ever thought about how old that alcohol is tucked away in the medicine cabinet? Or if it’s even still potent. What about that loofah in the shower? And nail polish?
Shape offers these guidelines of what to toss when.
