See many people may look at their toothbrush for what it is, just a toothbrush. But in actuality, your toothbrush is much more than that. Your toothbrush is basically the primary care provider of your oral health. They prevent plaque build up, gingivitis and cavities all in one minuscule item. And to top it off, they are pretty cheap.
All in all sounds like a pretty good deal.
But of paramount importance is the care and love you and your family show for your toothbrushes. So we’ve got some simple daily tips to help you ensure that battering ram of oral care defense stays fresh.
Rather than closed cabinets or containers, that can be a feeding ground for bacteria if not stored properly, we recommend most families utilize a toothbrush holder of some kind. Typically one where the brushes are able to stand vertical and the bristles are given ample amount of space to air dry properly.
Make sure to place your toothbrush holder in a location that’s unto itself. Placing it too close to the sink can allow for debris and dirty water to potentially splash, and come in contact with your family’s toothbrushes.
And please, we beg of you. Do not keep your toothbrush holder anywhere near your toilet. Those germs and particles are something we know you don’t want to come anywhere near your family’s toothbrushes!
Over time our toothbrush holders can pick up germs and bacteria that we don’t want in contact with our family’s toothbrushes. So we recommend ensuring your toothbrush holder is fresh and clean at all times. So make sure to stick that bad boy in the dishwasher, or wipe it down with some sort of antibacterial the moment you notice it getting dirty.
By no means are we suggesting you replace your regular routine of brushing and flossing at home. However, having a Brushee on-the-go allows for tons of flexibility in maintaining your family’s oral health.
You can easily pack one for you or child, sibling or spouse to use on the go and in between meals.
Plus they make a great item for potential houseguests.
So do yourself a favor, grab a Brushee today!
