You probably don’t think about cleaning your toothbrush much — until something happens to make you think it might be necessary. After all, they’re your own germs, right? However, if you or someone in your household has been sick, it’s probably a good idea to try and disinfect that toothbrush so they don’t get re-exposed to the nasty bug. Here’s how to get the job done right; it’s super easy!
1. The Soak
As soon as the sick person in your household gets better, time to disinfect their toothbrush with an antibacterial solution that’s safe for toothbrushes. In fact, it might not be a bad idea to give everyone’s toothbrush the same treatment when someone gets sick — especially if there’s a shared bathroom or toothbrush holder.
