For something that goes in my mouth everyday, you’d think I’d be more eager to have it super clean and sanitary. I tend to put my toothbrush back in it’s little white basket when I am done, not really thinking about germs. But thanks to my Bro-in-Law Brian, I’ve learned how easy it can be to disinfect a toothbrush.

Simply gather all the toothbrushes in your house, then add them to the next dish washing cycle. Viola! The hot water will have killed all those bad germy bugs. I try to do this every so often, before the brush needs to actually be replaced Those toothbrushes have no excuse and can always use the cleaning. Especially my children’s toothbrushes. I keep catching my little girl cleaning the sink with hers, ewww.

I suggest you try this little tip for cleaning your toothbrush. Your mouth will thank you.
