How to maintain good hygiene for your toothbrush? Learn how often you should disinfect it and how to do it!
One of the main problems we have with the toothbrush is eliminating the bacteria removed from our mouth by food intake. Problems such as cavities in children and adults, periodontal diseases, and even gastric problems, are some of the consequences of not cleaning the toothbrush as it should.
The environment in which we normally use the toothbrush is the bathroom. Placing the toothbrush on a surface that is not sufficiently clean poses a risk of bacterial contamination.
The best way to disinfect a toothbrush
Is with chlorhexidine mouthwash. You can also use baking soda, white vinegar, or pure hydrogen peroxide, diluting it in a glass for an hour once a week.
A simpler way can be boiling water.
Soaking your toothbrush in boiling water for a minute or two can be a good way to disinfect your toothbrush. Then rinse it with cold water and let it air dry.
With these tips, replace every three months toothbrush will prevent bacteria from accumulating and the toothbrush will not do the cleaning and disinfecting function that our teeth need.
Remember that there are toothbrushes made of natural materials, such as wood or bamboo, although the bristles are usually made of nylon, so it is necessary to remove them before throwing the handle of the toothbrush into the organic waste container.
