How to properly keep your bamboo toothbrush clean is something that crossed my mind a few days ago. I mean, it looks okay, but is it really clean? So I did some research to find out what the best way is to keep your toothbrush clean and give myself a mental checklist to see how I did! I hope you can make use of this list too.
1. Rinse it well first!
Before storing your toothbrush, give it a thorough rinse with tap water. Also be sure that you’re not leaving any toothpaste in the head of the brush.
2. Store your toothbrush upright
Storing your toothbrush upright, in a cup or a toothbrush holder, will allow the water to drain away from the head.
3. Store it out in the open.
You want the brush to air dry properly. Make sure it gets good air circulation, and it’s not stuck in a small drawer or cabinet when you’re not using it. If it stays moist, bacteria will grow in the toothbrush.
4. Know when to let replace your bamboo toothbrush.
