Fight Germs; Keep Your Toothbrush Clean

To maintain good health in general, it is essential to maintain clean surroundings. Germs are everywhere and unavoidable. But it is very important to make sure that your toothbrush is free of germs. Naturally, most people tend to keep their toothbrushes in the cleanest and tidy place. It helps prevent the chance of developing dental problems caused by germs. Various tips can be followed to keep the toothbrush squeaky clean, a few of which have been listed below. 

1.Never share your Tooth Brush

Living in a house, most people share an array of things and facilities. But toothbrushes should never be one among them. Each member should have a toothbrush of their choice which should be unique from each other. It helps to avoid confusion and avoids the chance of interchanging. This practice helps prevent cross-contamination and reduces the chance of developing communicable diseases or infections. 

2. Don’t Keep Them Together

It is best advised to keep the toothbrush apart as it helps to avoid the transfer of germs or bacteria. Toothbrush covers are available in the stores, which can be used to keep the toothbrush separately. 

3. Wash your Hands

Before picking the toothbrush, make sure that you have washed your hands thoroughly. Hands contain various types of bacteria, which may spread onto the toothbrush. It can travel up to the oral cavity and cause dental infections. Hence, it is best to always wash your hands before proceeding to any activity like brushing your teeth or consuming food. 

4. Rinse your Toothbrush

Before and after brushing, it is essential to rinse the toothbrush thoroughly. It should be held under running water to ensure that the toothpaste and debris are washed off from the toothbrush. Apply gentle pressure on the brush using the thumb to obtain optimal cleaning. The toothbrush should be kept in an upright position to remove the moisture on it. There should also be good airflow to ensure that the brush dries off immediately.
