A post in the New York Times this morning tells me that it’s okay to only replace your towels every three days or so, as opposed to—presumably—putting out clean towels every day. Last week, the same section let me know that it is probably not necessary to wipe down the kitchen counters with disinfectant every single day.

Reading these pieces, my first thought is who the hell even does this? My second thought is that it is no wonder supermarket shelves are filled with all this unnecessary crap and landfills are overflowing with discarded stuff.
