It’s not just the contents of the fridge that needs a look at expiration dates. Did you know that a number of household items have recommended times to change them out?

Cleaning up the kitchen
Item: Fridges & washing machines
How long before you should replace them: Between 15 and 30 years, depending on the manufacturer

But you will want to start shopping for a new washing machine or fridge at around the 15 year mark. This is because fridges and washing machines built today are known to use a lot less energy than models that were manufactured even 12 years ago.
So while you won’t need to switch your fridge regularly, if you have a water filter with your fridge, look to switch that twice a year. This is due to these filters collecting bacteria and building up mould over time.
