Welcome to MISBLOC!

We brush our teeth at least two or three times a day to maintain our dental health. However, sometimes our toothbrushes aren’t as clean as we might imagine. Germ reproduction is faster on toothbrush bristles than in other places because food waste gets buried in the toothbrush when it mixes with saliva. Sometimes, toothbrushes contain more bacteria than your toilet, which is equally surprising and disgusting. It is best to change your toothbrush frequently, but it is also necessary to get rid of germs through regular disinfection. Today, we will learn how to easily sterilize our toothbrushes at home.

3 Ways to Disinfect Your Toothbrush

1. Salt

Before modern toothbrushes and toothpaste, ancient civilizations used salt to protect their dental health. As such, salt has long been known to have excellent sterilization and disinfection properties. To disinfect your toothbrush with salt, sprinkle a small amount on your toothbrush and soak it in a cup of water for 20–30 minutes. After that, take out your toothbrush, rinse it with running water, and let it dry. Now your toothbrush is disinfected.

2. Baking Soda

Baking soda is an eco-friendly cleaner that can be used in many places, such as the kitchen, the bathroom, or any other room in your house. It can also be used to disinfect your toothbrush! Just like with salt, sprinkle a small amount of baking soda on your toothbrush and soak it in a cup of water for 20–30 minutes. After that, you can take out your toothbrush, rinse it, and dry it. Doing this once a week will keep your toothbrush clean.

3. Mouthwash

There is also a way to disinfect your toothbrush using mouthwash. Unsurprisingly, it can be used in the same way as salt and baking soda. Put your toothbrush in a cup of water and pour mouthwash into the cup until the head of the toothbrush is completely submerged. After 20–30 minutes, take your toothbrush out, rinse it with running water, shake off the water, and let it dry in a sunny place.

We’re sure you have salt, baking soda, or mouthwash in your home. You may even have all three! Now you know that these three products can also double as a disinfectant for your toothbrush. Make sure you disinfect it regularly to keep it clean! See you next time.
