How to Keep Your Toothbrush Clean?

Cleaning the Toothbrush


  • Clean your toothbrush before and after every use.
  • Wash the toothbrush thoroughly under running tap water.
  • Rub the bristles with your thumb to remove any remnants of toothpaste, dust, or any other contaminant.
  • Tap or flick the brush to remove excess water and let it air dry.


  • The toothbrush should be kept in an upright position in an open container so as to let the excess water drain out. If multiple toothbrushes are stored in the same container, the toothbrush heads should not touch each other.

  • The storage area should be dry and airy. It is not a good idea to store the toothbrush in small closed cabinets as they provide a moist, dark environment that encourages the growth of microorganisms on the brush.

  • If you are using a cover for the toothbrush head, you must ensure that the cover is designed in such a way that the bristles can air dry easily.

  • While traveling, if you are using a case to store your toothbrush, make sure the toothbrush is completely dry before packing. Don’t keep the toothbrush inside the luggage for a long time. When you unpack, keep the toothbrush in an open and dry area.
