While there are a great many products out on the market designed to sanitize a toothbrush and make it safe to use, you should consider the cost of commercial products before purchasing your sanitizing toothbrush. Sanitizing a toothbrush is simple. You simply add water and mix in a tablespoon or two of liquid chlorine bleach with the bristles of your toothbrush. Most dentists will suggest using a product such as Nature’s Miracle to effectively sanitize your toothbrush.
While it is great for doing a deep cleaning of your teeth and bathroom floor, it also can strip your toothbrushes of their natural luster and shine. Bleach is harsh and can do damage to your toothbrushes and enamel over time. Using products such as Nature’s Miracle will strip your toothbrushes of their natural beauty and shine. They won’t be able to re-gloss like they once could and many toothbrushes are no longer recommended for use in the home due to the sanitizing effects of these products.
If you decide to clean your toothbrush yourself, you will need to purchase a sanitizing toothpaste, some clear toothpaste in a spray bottle, and a bowl of hot water. The amount of toothpaste needed will depend on the size of your toothbrush and the bristles. You should also have about four ounces of hot water available when you are ready to go. Simply mix the toothpaste and water until the toothbrush is a smooth paste. Next, you should take the hot water and spray onto the bristles and then run hot water through the toothbrush and rinse it out. Repeat this process until the toothbrush is sanitizing and the sanitizing agents have been successfully removed from the bristles.
Next, you should take the bowl of hot water and mix it with about half a cup of sanitizing food coloring and half a teaspoon of salt. This mixture will be difficult for the water to dissolve so you may want to add another quarter of a cup of water. Once you have combined the mixture you will want to run hot water over the toothpaste and allow the mixture to sit for at least thirty minutes.
Some people believe that using mouthwash will help to protect your teeth from bacterial infections and germs that can cause dental problems. However, studies have shown that this is not the case. Using mouthwash will only mask any issues your mouth may have with plaque or oral health. To maintain good oral health you will need to find a good dental health product that is made specifically for mouthwash and other oral health issues.
Most people simply do not have the time to clean their toothbrushes or toothpaste regularly. If you are looking for a simple and easy way to improve your dental hygiene you should consider cleaning your bathroom floor. It is easier than you think and will save you time and money in the long run. You can also create your own unique and refreshing bathroom floor cleaner that you will be proud to show off.
