How to Keep your Bamboo Toothbrush Clean

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.

When the bristles of your bamboo toothbrush are starting to show wear, which usually happens after three months, it’s time to replace it with a new one. The Bamboo Toothbrushes from Nup Living have a neat indicator on when you need to replace it. They have all the months listed on the toothbrush so you simply mark the month when you start using it, so you know you need to replace it 3 months later. It’s also time to replace the bamboo toothbrush if you’ve just gotten over a cold.

Looking at the points above, I was very pleased that I did all of these things, except the replacing your bamboo toothbrush after a cold was not something I thought of before. It definitely makes sense since the bacteria are still there so if you continue to use it after you get better you’re not doing yourself any favors.
