Almost everyone change their toothbrush at least 3 months, but do you know even though you change your toothbrush regularly, your toothbrush still full of bacteria.
You might think that the toothpaste can cleanse the toothbrush, however, I would love to tell you the opposite is true. Believe it or not, the build-up bacteria exist in your toothbrush. Not destroying plaque and bacteria on toothbrush bristles before re-use contribute to diabetes, hypertension, and eventual heart failure. Hardened blocked arteries has been linked to use of dirty toothbrushes over extended periods. So change the toothbrush every 3 months is not enough, you need to clean your toothbrush regular. How about take your best toothbrush from the toothbrush holder and have a try as the following steps?
1.You will need a glass, a piece of gold or silver jewelry, or a stainless steel object such as spoon, fork and knife, mouthwash or hydrogen peroxide oral debriding agent, and the dirty toothbrush.
2. Wash the stainless steel object you have with mild soap and water, removing all grease or body oil.
3. Dry the washed items in a clean cloth.
4. Please the metal item in the base of the glass.
5. Place the toothbrush to rest in the base of the glass.
6. Half fill the glass with the mouthwash or hydrogen peroxide oral debriding agent.
7.Watch the rapid “catalytic” reaction instantly occur when you add the liquid to the glass (your bristles are now clean and ready for re-use).
After all, you can re-use your best toothbrush, if you are neat, you could also repeat the process each time when you use the toothbrush, but remember to change your liquid as often as you desire.
