Will a neat rack of toothbrushes spark joy in your life? Maybe not. But with tidier toothbrushing kit you’ll feel good because you’re doing your best to keep your mouth, and the family’s, healthy and free of harmful bacteria. Moreover, the bathroom will look less cluttered too!
Keep our one simple rule in mind to help all the family maintain their oral health, prevent the spread of germs, and stop squabbles about who’s finished the toothpaste.
It won’t come as a surprise that a toothbrush is a personal item, that’s best not shared.
But many people do share!
In fact, according to the Oral Health Foundation, about 26% of Brits admit they are willing to let someone else use their toothbrush! Their research suggests men share more willingly than women, and newly bonding couples are more likely to as well. Of course, it’s good to share experiences with our loved ones. Yet sharing a glass or a kiss is not the same as sharing a toothbrush – it’s not as risky.
Our dental cleaning tools come into contact with a lot of oral bacteria and, depending on the health of our gums, there can be blood too. A little saliva, because it has antibacterial properties, is usually okay. All that other stuff stuck between the bristles of our brush from the nooks and crannies of our mouths, however, is best kept away from other people.
Some people also prefer to keep their toothpaste, floss and other paraphernalia to themselves too. That way there’s no cross-contamination. After all, you pick up your interdental brushes, then the floss, then the paste… it makes good sense to keep it personal.
The one and only rule for tidy toothbrushing kit is to keep it to yourself! There’s nothing selfish about that – it makes the best of sense! And your teeth and gums will thank you for it!
A clean up of the bathroom could be a great excuse to refresh some bathroom accessories, get handy with wall-mounted toothbrush holders or hang those shelves you’ve wanted for ages! If you decide to have a sort out, have fun and keep up that smile!
