To maintain their effectiveness, you must replace your toothbrush every few months. They must also be replaced after you’ve been sick. With how often you must replace your toothbrush, it can be useful to have alternative uses for your old toothbrushes. Here are a few ideas for your old toothbrushes!
Toothbrushes are exceptionally useful for cleaning! The bristles are designed to clean your teeth, which means that they can be utilized for many other purposes. They are also small and are ideal for cleaning those hard to reach places where grime can build up.
Some of the best places to clean with a toothbrush include:
- Dusty keyboards- the toothbrush will be able to reach the places in between or around the keys, removing dust and gunk
- Tiles- a toothbrush can help clean the grout between the tiles, removing stains and dirt
- Jewelry- because toothbrushes are small and bristled, they can help gently clean jewelry
- Blinds- toothbrushes are ideal for cleaning slats from blinds or windowsills
- Fish tanks- an old toothbrush can be a useful tool for cleaning fish tanks. The handle will allow you to reach the more difficult places
Toothbrushes can be used to exfoliate the skin. The bristles can help gently remove dead skin cells from the skin without causing damage. A toothbrush can also be used as a makeup brush. They are particularly good at brushing out eyebrows.
There are many ways to reuse toothbrushes after they have worn out their welcome in the bathroom. Ensure that you disinfect the toothbrush before putting it to a new use. It is essential to replace your toothbrush regularly to ensure that they are remaining effective. If you are unsure when to replace your toothbrush, use one with colored bristles that show when the toothbrush needs to be replaced. Otherwise, write the date you begin using the toothbrush on the handle. To learn more about how to maintain optimal oral hygiene, contact us at Bismarck Advanced Dental and Implants.
