Health: always Clean Toothbrush From Germs

 Your toothbrush is clean from germs? are you sure?
Place the toothbrush in the wrong places like the toilet and not clean it properly can cause germs lodged in a toothbrush and make you sick.

According to germ expert Chuck Gerba, PhD, professor of environmental microbiology at the University of Arizona, toilet containing 3.2 million bacteria in every 2.5 cm square. When we press the flush button, which joined the air blew out the bacteria as far as the radius of 1.8 meters. That is, floor, sink, toothbrush, too contaminated. Instead, keep a toothbrush in an enclosed place, such as in the medicine cabinet or near the closet.

Always clean
In addition to putting a toothbrush in vain, do not clean toothbrush can also trigger the bacteria lodged on your toothbrush.

Some people believe that cleaning brush by soaking it into larutanmouthwash can kill germs that nesting. The presumption is wrong but, because it contains very little alcohol mouthwash to kill germs. Better to use a solution of alcohol 70% because the levels can get rid of germs from the brush so it is not easy to smell. Soak the brush along the size that normally go into your mouth and replace alcohol every 3-4 days or until the solution was muddy color.

Use and care
Brush your teeth often soaked in a solution of alcohol is believed to reduce a person's risk of disease caused by germs. To use a toothbrush that has been soaked in a solution of alcohol, clean first with warm water so that the smell of alcohol is lost. Once clean, apply toothpaste on the brush and brush your teeth properly. Clean the brush after use and returned to soak in a solution of alcohol.

The other way is you can invest your oral health on a toothbrush purifier. Use a cleaning brush that contains ultraviolet rays that have been clinically proven to kill germs, bacteria, and viruses that are harmful to the body up to 99.9% in just a few minutes.
