DIY Clean Your Toothbrush
This is something that often slips my mind to do at home. Yes, you’re suppose to get a new toothbrush every 3-6 months but if you never clean it can you even start to imagine how many germs grow on the toothbrush that sits on the counter, or on the sink. Hairspray, perfume, ANYTHING just sitting on the end of your toothbrush –ICK. Just soak your toothbrush in hydrogen peroxide to kill the germs instantly.
Your mouth will thank you!!

    Do you know how long to soak it? I do know, according to Fitness Magazine, that you are suppose to store your toothbrush as far away from the toilet as possible and if you have a medicine cabinet put it in there. Microorganisms are ejected everywhere when you flush the toilet, even if you keep the lid down. YUCK I can be such a germ phobe and I don’t have a medicine cabinet 🙁

    KRISTEN S., EWWW, lol Get yourself a cabinet that you can mount on your wall. I’ve read you should soak the toothbrushes in peroxide overnight. We replace our toothbrushes more frequently than every 3-6 months. Especially since I have a toddler in the house. If someone has been ill, that toothbrush gets tossed out as soon as the illness is gone & it gets disinfected in peroxide nightly. Also if you keep your toothbrushes in a container, make sure to run the cup/container through the dishwasher frequently to kill off any bacteria that’s gathered inside it.
