Protect Your Brush Against The Flush!

IMG_5100How To Keep Toilet Bacteria From Getting Into Your Mouth!

Sharing and caring with my story about toilet bacteria.

When you flush the toilet with the lid open, it can spray up to 10 inches in the air, getting spray on and around the area of the toilet itself.  If you have a small bathroom, and your toilet is near your sink, you may be getting harmful vomit and diarrhea causing bacteria all over your toothbrush.

The best way to prevent this, is to put the lid down when you flush.  Your mouth itself is full of millions of bacteria germs that go from your mouth to your toothbrush and back again.

A great sanitation method for your toothbrush is to store it in a cup of diluted hydrogen peroxide.  It will kill any bacteria that may be on the brush after washing it, and also keep it from getting any of the bacteria from the toilet flush.  You will want to change this out every couple of days or so.

Another way to keep your toothbrush fresh is to change it out on a regular basis.
