Why Should You Keep Your Toothbrush Holder Clean

Posted on 4/24/2023 by Brandon Cooley
:Why Should You Keep Your Toothbrush Holder CleanThe inside of the toothbrush holder is a prime location for spreading germs. This is because you hang your wet toothbrush on the holder every other day. When you place your toothbrush in the holder, the bacteria on the holder rub off onto the toothbrush, which causes it to become contaminated throughout. Due to this, more than half of the holders of toothbrushes often contain yeast and mold.

Dental professionals advise brushing your teeth at least three feet away from your bathroom's toilet to prevent germs from quickly spreading to your toothbrush. You should never let anyone else use your toothbrush holder, and you should never let anyone else use your toothbrush holder. Aside from this, you should apply toothpaste to your toothbrush and brush your teeth for a minimum of two minutes. After that, give your toothbrush a rinse and ensure any food remnants are gone.

Store Your Toothbrush In An Appropriate Place

Due to bacteria thriving in wet environments, you should never keep your brush in a container or cap that is airtight. It is not recommended to heat your toothbrush in the microwave in order to disinfect it. Aside from this, you should never allow anybody else to use your toothbrush. Before you start brushing your teeth, you need to make sure that the toothbrush is completely dry, that it is stored in a dry place, and that your hands have been washed.
