Towels are something we touch every day, and can also be understood as fast-moving consumer goods in life.
Towels that are used for a long time will gradually harden gradually, and a lot of pathogenic bacteria will gradually appear. At this time, the towel will seriously affect the feeling of use and health.
Many people think that towels are only used when they are worn out, but in fact, towels should be fast-moving consumer goods in life. Towels should be replaced at least once every three months. Don’t wait for them to be broken.
According to surveys, many towels will contain Staphylococcus aureus, Candida albicans, Escherichia coli and other bacteria after being used for a long time.
The frequent appearance of these bacteria will cause the appearance of various human diseases, but the long-term use of the human body is still very harmful.
And because the towel is a fiber fabric, after using it for a long time, the bacteria that penetrates into the towel fiber will become difficult to clean. Drying and high-temperature cooking can only control the number of bacteria on thin towels in a short period of time, and cannot directly remove bacteria. Therefore, the towels should be changed every 3 months. Within 3 months, the towels should be cleaned in time after each use.

3. Disinfect the towels once a week.
