Food is not the only thing that comes with an expiry date. There are other things also which we use in our daily lives also has an expiry date about which many of us may not be aware of. Household items like slippers, toothbrush, towels, pillows, motor oil, sponge etc also have a limited shelf-life.

Although we use these things almost daily we have never focussed on whether they have an expiry date or not. After, going through this article, you will be shocked about knowing the expiry dates for some of the daily house items that you use.

Here is the list of Household Items That You Didn’t Know to Have an Expiry Date

1. Towel

We use towels almost daily after bathing but you must have not seen or know about that even towel can also have an expiry date. You should try to change your towels from year to year so that you may get infected by the bacterias in them.

2. Toothbrushes

Most of us don’t prefer to use those old and worn out toothbrushes for a longer period of time.  So, we try to change them frequently as the bristles of the toothbrushes start to get damaging which also creates problem while brushing your teeth.

You should try to change your toothbrush every three months to prevent gum damage.

3. Sponge

We know that sponges are good absorbents. They have the capacity to store lots of water in them. It is due to this reason you need to change them every two weeks in order to avoid yourself from getting any kind of infection which you can get if you keep using the old sponges for a prolonged time.

4. Bra

We are in a very bad habit of regularly using our bras until they have worn out completely, but this is wrong, they also get expired after some time. So, girls, you need to replace them as well every one to two years.

5. Wooden Spoons

It might be hard for you to believe that even these wooden spoons also get expired. They get expired after 5 years if they have any soft spots, cracks or discoloration. Wood is a porous material which easily absorbs moisture so that may be harmful to you as it easily lets bacteria to grow.

6. Vegetable Chopping Board

We can’t imagine our like in the kitchen without making use of these vegetable chopping boards. So, you need to take care of them as well when you’re using them on a daily basis to chop your vegetables.

You should change your vegetable chopping board whenever there is even a slight crack in them to prevent yourself from getting infected from any fungi or bacteria.

7. Hairbrushes

Hairbrushes are one of the main essential items that almost everyone uses in their daily lives. Your hairbrushes should be regularly washed, or in a week but if you replace them every year then it would be a more feasible option as they become host to several types of skin and scalp infections.

How Do Muslims Observes Ramadan in The Arctic Circle Where There is no Dawn and Dusk?

Ramadan in The Arctic Circle

Ramadan, which is popularly known as Ramadan among Muslims has been started earlier this month. During the observance of Ramadan, people are on severe fasting for almost a month. It’s quite strange but it’s true. They don’t drink or eat anything at all between dawn and dusk. Not only this they also refrain themselves from other pleasures too like smoking a cigarette or anything else. But have you ever wondered how do they practice Ramadan in the Arctic Circle where there is no sunset?

Read on to know about it.

In some parts of the world, people say that it is easier for them to practice Ramadan.

Some areas have exceptionally long days in summer like Scandinavia, Canada, Russia, and Alaska above the Arctic Circle, where the sun does not set for weeks at a time. Since Ramadan is tied to the lunar calendar, these places experience the opposite problem during the winter season where the sun won’t rise for more than a month.

Then what do the Muslims do when there is no sunrise or sunset to continue their fasting during the holy month of Ramadan?

Well, there is no principle or authority who can guide these people about how can they do their fasting in these areas where there is no dawn and dusk. Many people have come up with their own solution and this is ignoring the sun’s local position and following more reasonable sunrise and sunset times from another place.

For example, The Islamic Center of Northern Norway has issued a fatwa that gives Muslims the option of following the fasting hours of the holy city of Mecca when the local fasting day exceeds 20 hours.

Seeing this decision, The Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America made a similar rule for Muslims that people who are living at extreme points of Alaska uses the dawn and dusk time of another country to observe their fasting where a day can be differentiated from the night.

“One more new rule came into existence after this by The Council of Senior Scholars in Saudi Arabia who has decided that Muslims living in a region where sun does not set in summer and does not rise in winter should observe their fasting hours based on the sunrise and sunset timing of the closest country in which night can be distinguished from day.”

So, basically, Muslims perform their holy Ramadan on the basis of principles and rulings made by the senior authorities in the areas where there is no dawn and dusk observed.

Secrets Used by The Supermarkets

Nowadays, you will find many of the supermarkets and grocery stores around you. But have you ever wondered that what all tricks do they use in their superstores to lure their customers which make us buy more and giving them a greater profit? They make use of clever tricks which we can’t imagine such as the positioning of items on the shelf according to the buyer’s behaviour, not putting a wall clock in a store so that you buy more without looking at the time, manipulation of expiry date on the items to sell them off and many more.

Have a look at some of the tricks used by the supermarkets mentioned below.

1. Grocery store owners put their tricks best to persuade us to shop more

Most of the companies or local grocery stores nowadays make use of marketing tricks to increase their sales and to grow profit. Things which they do prompt us to buy more like they keep most of the things on the shelf closer so that we do not have any difficulty to pick up them and we buy easily.

Moreover, some companies also put their dairy section at a place where you have to walk long to get them knowing that it’s a necessity.

2. Their brilliant way of items positioning in the store

Everything in a store you find is kept at an appropriate place. Like, you must have seen that whenever you go for shopping at high-end malls, they keep some goodies in mini packs to attract buyers to purchase them instantly and seriously most of us fall in this trap.

And other thing they follow is the brilliant positioning of items kept in the store like beautiful colours, cereals at a lower position to attract kids and expensive items are kept at an adult’s eye level to impulse them.

3. Don’t ever believe on the expiration date listed on the items

The first thing that you pay attention to is the expiration date of the item that you are planning to buy. But be aware most of the stores are fooling us by changing the dates just to sell off the item which is ethically wrong.

4. Most of the supermarkets don’t use clocks

Have you ever wondered why do these supermarkets don’t make use of wall clocks at their stores? This is because they want their customers to spend more time in the store which will ultimately lead you to purchase more even when you don’t want to.

5. Makes use of water so that veggies look new and fresh

Most of the supermarkets use this trick to assure us that the veggies and fruits that they are selling are not old. They spray water on the veggies so that they look fresh for a long time which is actually not correct as it makes veggies and fruits spoil faster.
