There are tons of particles flying around the bathroom where your toothbrush is kept, and any time the bristles are out, they collect those particles.
Then, when you brush your teeth, you consume those particles, which can be quite unhealthy. Instead, keep your toothbrush sanitized so it is safe to use each time.
How to Quickly Sanitize Your Toothbrush Right NowYou want to take a small cup of mouthwash that has an anti-bacterial or antiseptic agent in it, and place it on your bathroom counter. Then, put your toothbrush in it and cover it with a little plastic wrap to keep any other particles out.
Then, leave it for anywhere from 5-10 minutes. Then, next time you go to use your toothbrush, you do not need to worry about putting those particles in your mouth.
If you would prefer to have your toothbrush always ready to go, you can do this each time you brush. Set your toothbrush, tip down, into a cup with just enough mouthwash to cover the bristles after each time you brush.
Then, when you brush next, dump out the old mouthwash and pour in new, then repeat. If you are not big on using mouthwash, you can also put your toothbrush into the dishwasher once or twice each week to sanitize it.
Having a sanitary toothbrush is important to your dental health. With the fact that fecal matter can often be found in the particles of any given bathroom, you want to do what you can to ensure that you are not putting that into your mouth. To find out more, contact our office today!
