What clean toothbrush do you use to clean your teeth?

The bathroom should be a place that represents relaxation and the first morning contact with oneself. For many, it is an oasis of peace, but let’s not forget that every member of the household walks through it every day, so it can quickly become a breeding ground for bacteria and danger. Make sure it doesn’t.

The bathroom is almost the most intimate space in our home. It is where we first meet ourselves in the morning, where we take care of our own hygiene and health, and often also of well-being and relaxation. But for this to be true, we must follow quite a few rules to ensure proper hygiene. Regular cleaning of the bathroom will not be enough in this case, also examine the items that you use every day and that pose a danger to both you and your loved ones, as they harbor a real breeding ground of bacteria.


In one of the studies carried out at one of the British universities, they found that the toothbrush in the bathroom is a real breeding ground for bacteria and in this respect even surpasses the toilet bowl. On average, more than ten million bacteria, including staphylococci, remain on the toothbrush; most species stafilokokov it is otherwise harmless to humans, but some can cause ugly purulent inflammation and sepsis. And let’s not forget the well-known E. coli bacteria, strains of which can cause bloody diarrhea without fever, while other pathogenic strains also cause various complications in the inflammation of the urinary tract, which can even lead to kidney failure. Therefore, do not forget that the toothbrush should be changed at least every three months. Never share it with others, and always clean it thoroughly after brushing your teeth or soak it in mouthwash.

A hair brush

A hair brush should be on the list of things that we clean thoroughly almost every day. It is often a haven for several bacteria and molds; one of the conducted studies showed that on average there is even more bacteria or mold on a hairbrush than in a dishwasher or in a bowl of dog food. In addition to the hair, the brushes also contain chemicals from hair styling products, dead skin from the scalp and other impurities that create ideal conditions for the reproduction of bacteria and mold. Therefore, periodically dip the brush in a mixture of water, shampoo and vinegar and scrub and clean it well to remove all dirt and bacteria.
