It's Spring cleaning time and here's a list of items you didn't realize expire.

It's Spring time in Rockford and that means the weather is getting better. It also means it's time to do some Spring cleaning around the house.

I can tell people in my neighborhood have already started, because on garbage day the curbs are lined with extra trash.

Plus, I've seen the big piles of donations outside the Salvation Army.

As I started mentally making my list of things I want to accomplish while Spring cleaning, I found this list of "house items you didn't realize had expiration dates" on

I knew that things like food, beverages, and medicine have expiration dates. I didn't realize there are many other household items that do too.

Here are some of those items.

1. Pillows expire in 2-3 years. Don't you replaced a pillow when it gets flat and uncomfortable. I thinking more like 10 years. My pillow is broken in just right.

2. Towels expire in 1-3 years. I usually get rid of a towel, when it starts falling apart. As long as it dries me off, I'm good with it. I have a towel from college.

3. Toothbrush expires in 3 months. My dentist gives me a new toothbrush, when I go in for a cleaning. That's every six months. I have gone a couple of years without changing.

4. Hairbrush expires in 1 year. This one I would have never guessed. I have no idea how old my is. It has enough hair in it to make Captain Jack a wig.

5. Running shoes expire in 1 year. I thought shoes were done, when they started getting holes in them. I'm not a fan of running, so maybe that might make them last longer.

There are several more surprising items that expire. If you would like to see the whole list, check out it "19 Household Items You Didn’t Realize Had Expiration Dates."
