Be Care­ful with Your Tooth­brush

It’s a hot­house for germs and worse. Fol­low the fol­low­ing rules...

India Today - - LEISURE -

Avoid the toi­let

If your tooth­brush is near the toi­let, al­ways close the lid and flush as flush­ing dis­perses con­tam­i­nated wa­ter droplets

Never in the cabi­net

Never store a tooth­brush inside the bath­room cabi­net, where air can­not cir­cu­late. This could pro­mote bac­te­rial growth

Keep it up­right

Keep it up­right, in the open and avoid putting more than one brush in a mug, to avoid cross-con­tam­i­na­tion

Re­place it reg­u­larly

Re­place your tooth­brush ev­ery three months. And do not ever share one
