Everyday Toothbrush Hygiene

We all know that we should change our toothbrush at least every 3 months because they become worn out and harbor bacteria in the bristles, but I could never remember to do it.


Toothbrushes are cheap to buy, plus my dentist gives me one every time I see him, so we're not talking a great expense by any means. What I do is automatically change my toothbrush whenever I open a new tube of toothpaste. A tube of toothpaste lasts me about a month so I always know when my brush will be due for changing.

I keep my rinsed toothbrush in an old coffee cup filled with a few inches of mouthwash, stored under the sink and away from the airborne spray of toilet flushes.

This is a simple and effective means of keeping toothbrush hygiene.

Good tips but an old coffee can will rust. Perhaps a clean glass or plastic jar?


I put mine in the medicine cabinet in a recycled drink mix container, the round opaque ones. But I do like the timing of the new tube, new brush.
