The Best Ways to Keep Your Toothbrush Clean

If you aren’t careful, your toothbrush can be swarmed with bacteria and germs, which is why it’s important to keep your toothbrush clean and pristine at all times. To help you keep your toothbrush in tip-top shape, our team is happy to suggest how to clean your toothbrush.

7 Ways to Clean Toothbrush

-Thoroughly wash your hands with soap and warm water before and after you brush your teeth.

-Rinse your toothbrush with warm water after brushing. You should also store it upright so it can air dry.

-Keep your toothbrush bristles out in the open until they are completely dry. Don’t cover them with the toothbrush cover if they are wet because a moist environment is a breeding ground for bacteria.

-Always use a completely dry toothbrush.

-Don’t share your toothbrush with anyone, and make sure your brush is stored in a place where it won’t touch other toothbrush bristles.

-Make sure you replace your toothbrush after three to four months and after you have been sick.

-If you or a family member has been sick, it is best if that person uses a different tube of toothpaste so they don’t spread germs.
