Keep a Toothbrush Clean

  • The germs and bacteria in our toothbrush are invisible to our eyes and with that, we are not really conscious about the sanitation of the toothbrush. One great way to kill bacteria is to clean and rinse it before and after use. You have to give force on top of the brush for some seconds under running water to remove the germs and bacteria.
  • The usual way we do when sanitizing is to boil or soak brush with hot water, and then leave it for some minutes to remove bacteria but this can’t be done all the time because your brush will be worn out.
  • You need to change your toothbrush in three to four months. You have to make sure that you get a new one after 3 or 4 months. This is to keep your month clean and of course to be away from diseases. The mouth is the first carrier of virus- causing diseases.
