Many people think dishwashers are just for cleaning dishes, but this is not true. You can use a dishwasher to sanitize many things, including your toothbrush.
Although putting a toothbrush in your dishwasher is one good way to sanitize it and keep it clean for as long as you can, there are other ways to clean them. Here is more information on cleaning and keeping your toothbrush clean.
Avoid Sharing Your Toothbrush with AnyoneAs much as you trust someone else in your family, such as your spouse or your children, you should still never share it with anyone else, ever. Sharing a toothbrush with others can cause bacteria to go into your mouth. When you get bacteria in your mouth, this can make you sick and ruin your teeth.
Rinse Your Toothbrush WellAfter every use of your toothbrush, it is important for you to rinse it thoroughly. Rinsing it well will get off all of the remaining debris and food particles as well as the toothpaste you used. By rinsing your toothbrush well, you are also rinsing off all of the bacteria that you brushed off your teeth.
Keep Your Toothbrush in an Open ContainerYou never want to keep your toothbrush closed up or leave it where there is any moisture because where there is moisture, there are microorganisms that cause bacteria. Make sure to keep your toothbrush out in the open and dry.
Replace Your Toothbrush Every Few MonthsReplacing your toothbrush every three to four months is a good idea. If you continue to use an old toothbrush, you could end up putting bacteria back in your mouth. Not only will bacteria ruin your teeth but it can also make you sick.
