SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

We’re accustomed to the occasional conversation about how often it is appropriate to wash your bedsheets. But what about your bath towel? According to a microbiologist, while every week or 2 is usually OK for sheets, towels are best washed every few days. Excessive? Nope. Rietie Venter, Head of Microbiology at University of South Australia, explains that when you dry yourself, you deposit thousands of skin cells and millions of microbes onto the towel. And because you use your towel to dry yourself after a shower or bath, your towel is regularly damp. Towels are also made of a thicker material than sheets, and therefore tend to stay damp for longer. Therefore, towels are a breeding ground for bacteria and molds. And this, of course, can lead to a nasty smell. Exposure to microbes in your towels (and sheets) can also lead to asthma, allergic skin irritations, or other skin infections. So, towels should be washed every few days, and your facecloth after every use. By the way, in one survey, almost half of single men reported not washing their sheets for up to 4 months at a time!

A purse made out of nothing but glass and air made its debut at Paris Fashion Week. The fashion label Coperni partnered with NASA to create the Air Swipe bag, a blink-and-you-miss-it accessory with a translucent appearance. With a composition of 99% air and 1% glass, the cutting-edge transparent purse weighs only 33 grams — about the same as a lightbulb. Coperni said the cloud-like handbag is the biggest ever object made from the space technology nanomaterial silica aerogel, which is the lightest solid on Earth and is used by NASA to capture stardust.LINK:


The Super Marios Bros Movie” will return with a sequel, Nintendo has announced. The new animated film, set for release on April 3, 2026, will come almost exactly 3 years after the release of the original movie. The first film scored big at the box office, crossing $1 billion less than a month after release. No plot details about the sequel so far, except for the plan to “broaden Mario’s world further.”

Will Reba McEntire’s ‘June Ballard’ character return before “Young Sheldon” ends in May? That’s the hope, says Steve Holland. The exec producer “would love to have her back,” but pointed out there are no firm plans in place yet. Holland revealed that McEntire has “expressed interest, but she’s very busy” with another sitcom pilot she’s shooting, in addition to her coaching role on “The Voice”, so he’s not sure “if it’s going to work out.”

One of TV’s most iconic properties is up for sale. A Remax listing for the house used for exterior shots on “Roseanne” (and spinoff “The Conners”) shows the sellers are asking $225,000 for the property, on Runnymeade Ave. in Evansville, IN (NOT Lanford IL, as in the show!). The 2,400 square-foot home has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a laundry room on the main level, plus an unfinished basement.

Dame Helen Mirren has been honored with her own Barbie doll. She is among 8 famous women who have had dolls made in their likeness to mark the toy’s 65th anniversary, and to recognize their achievements as “Female Storytellers”. Mirren said of the honor: “It’s…something I can add to my list of my favorite achievements – becoming a Dame of the British Empire, having an Oscar, having a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and having my own Barbie.” Other dolls have been made for singers Shania Twain and Kylie Minogue, actress Viola Davis, model Nicole Fujita as well as comedian/activist Enissa Amani, moviemaker Lila Aviles and content creator Maira Gomez.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

The Gen Z slang words ‘Bed rotting,’ ‘girl dinner,’ and ‘boobne’ were added to Dictionary-dot-com last month.

Pug owners have happier marriages than other dog owners, says a report.

You may know the drill: a closet full of fabulous clothing, yet nothing to wear. That’s why Bianca Rangecroft created “Whering”, a wardrobe-indexing app that tracks how many times you wear each piece, and gives you suggestions on what items you might want to mix-and-match. Users upload photos of garments, shoes and accessories, and use the images to create various outfit combinations, by occasion. It also tracks the ‘cost per wear’ and calculates the total cost of your wardrobe, which its creator believes will help you think “differently about the ownership of clothes” and get the most out of your closet.

THE LIST: Brought to you by


An analysis of Google search data by Spin Genie uncovered the nostalgic snacks that people (in the US) are searching for the most. Some are still available, some are just fond memories…

6. Crystal Pepsi: This was a no-caffeine, colorless version of the classic beverage, released in the ‘90s. It has returned as a limited-edition offer.

7. Kudos granola bars: Produced by Mars Inc. until 2017, these granola bars were coated in chocolate or caramel. And one version was covered in M&Ms.

8. Orbitz drinks: Short-lived — but fondly remembered. These odd drinks, released in the ’90s, contained edible balls floating around the liquid.

9. Waffle Crisp cereal: Post released this in 1966, calling it a “perfect breakfast.” Each bite of the waffle-shaped cereal had notes of maple syrup. It returned to shelves in 2021.

10. Rice Krispies cereal: Not only is it a fan-favorite on its own, it’s also a popular dessert, when baked with marshmallows and butter.
