There are some things that don’t get discussed very often…  for example when was the last time you asked your girl friend how old her make-up is or how often she washes her bra? These are things that don’t come up in everyday conversation, so it leaves a lot of unanswered questions.

This post is here to answer some of those random questions you may or may not know the answer to.

1 | How long should you keep your mascara before buying a new one?
-Mascara expires faster than any other make-up and should be thrown out after 4 months or so.

2 | Does nail polish expire?

-If you’re like me you have a ton nail polishes that you’ve collected for years, so I hate to tell you this but anything over 1 year should be thrown out.

3 | How often should you wash your make-up brushes?

-Wash every 2-3 months in a mild detergent or baby shampoo.

4 | How many wears can you get out of your bra before washing it?

-After 3 to 4 wears, unless you sweat a lot then you should be washing every wear.

5 | How often should you buy a new toothbrush?

-Every three to four months or once the bristles are frayed.

6 | How many wears can you get out of jeans before having to wash them?

-Five to six wears. Although there are some that advocate washing as little as possible.

7 | How often should I wash my sheets?

-Weekly is ideal, but once every other week is ok.
