What are you doing with your toothbrush? That's right: Brush the bacteria from the biter. Still, most of us do not really cleanse them thoroughly. Mys included. After brushing, I hold the brush head of my electric toothbrush briefly under the water, ready. That this is not really enough, I see, since I additionally use some days on a black, so well visible charcoal toothpaste. Two days later, a slightly gray film runs out of the toothbrush. It is not cleaned so well by washing it off. Imagine that as bacteria: Iiiieeeeeekkks.
So you clean your toothbrush really well from bacteria
So ask the dentist: How to clean the toothbrush really thorough? The recommendation: Once a week you should soak the toothbrush head in mouthwash for about 15 minutes. This kills all bacteria, your toothbrush is thoroughly cleaned again. Well, that sounds feasible.
