OMG!!!!!!!Are You Eating Bacteria!?!
Health & Fitness
Your toothbrush looks innocent enough sitting on your bathroom sink. But before you put it in your mouth, consider this: the average toothbrush can contain 10 million bacteria or more
your toothbrush is a little bacteria magnet, attracting the little buggers from several sources: If you store your toothbrush on or next to the bathroom sink, it gets contaminated from splashing from washing hands
Do you store your toothbrush in an airtight container? Don't. The toothbrush can't dry out between brushing, which encourages mold growth
Here’s what to do to keep your toothbrush as bacteria-free as possible.
Replace your brush every three to four months, or when the bristles get splayed and frayed
Use the right toothpaste While most toothpastes do kill germs, some are better than others. Toothpastes with triclosan/copolymer are better than regular fluoride toothpastes at killing oral bacteria
Don't share brushes. Not matter how conscientious you are about cleaning, you will never remove all bacteria. If you want to be really safe, it's better to have different tubes of toothpaste for family members.
Clean your bristles Occasionally soak yours in hydrogen peroxide or mouthwashes with antibacterial agents, especially if you’ve dropped it on the floor. If you are going to put your electric toothbrush through the dishwasher, make sure you only put in the bristle end, not that electric charger.
Close the lid Always flush your toilet with the lid down! Enough said.
Expose it to air Don’t store in an airtight container. If you keep yours in the medicine cabinet – generally, a good idea – you can tell if enough air is getting in if your brush dries out between cleanings. And If you store toothbrushes together, make sure the heads don’t touch.
