Should We Use Toothbrush Sanitizer?
published date: 2021/10/12

If you're using at home or during travling, you want to make sure your toothbrush is clean.

But is it necessary to buy a toothbrush sanitizer to disinfect an essential instrument of your oral care?

We suggest: It depends.

In this article we'll try to explain how toothbrush sanitizers work – and some advises on preventing

your toothbrush from germ without a sanitizer at home and during trip..

How does a Toothbrush Sanitizer Work?

A toothbrush sanitizer still has typically function in one of three ways so you can eliminate harmful bacteria:
• Steam and Dry Heat: Steam and dry heat take turns sanitizing the toothbrush, leaving it dry enough to avoid
creating a breeding ground for bacteria.
• Ultraviolet Light: The sanitizing power of UV light zaps the bacteria.
• UV and Heat: Combining two bacteria-killers, this sanitizing method doesn't increase its effectiveness –
it can still only kill up to 99.99% of bacteria. But it might double your peace of mind.
You can find battery-operated or rechargeable toothbrush sanitizers of all shapes, sizes, and prices with
a simple search. There are wall-mounted, free-standing, and portable varieties. Some hold multiple toothbrushes,
and some only one at a time.

Keeping Your Toothbrush Clean at Home and On the Go

You might be a DIYer. If so, you shouldn't need a toothbrush sanitizer as long as you take these easy steps:
• Wash your hands before brushing (and flossing) to avoid transferring the bacteria on your hands to your toothbrush.
• Rinse the toothbrush thoroughly with water after use. Ensure you remove all toothpaste residue and loose debris
where bacteria can shelter.
• Store your toothbrush in an upright position so it can dry quickly – located away from the toilet bowl and sink.
This avoids bacteria-laden water or gasses from either location splashing or infiltrating your toothbrush.
• Replace your toothbrush every three to four months to avoid using one with frayed and worn bristles that can trap
bacteria and damage your gums.
• Once a week, you can also soak your toothbrush in antimicrobial mouthwash for a few minutes or in a mixture of water, vinegar, and baking soda for 30 minutes

So, it all depends on your lifestyle and how you opt to disinfect your brush. But whatever you choose,

you can make your toothbrush a model of sanitary cleanliness.
