Works for Me Wednesday: Toothbrush Hygiene
The flu season is here, or at least close! Not to be hyper spastic about germs, but I have a kid that goes to preschool and lets face it, she is a walking petri dish.
When I clean the bathroom each Thursday, I give the toothbrushes a good soak in some denture cleaner. As you can see, I buy only the best quality.
I think of the toothbrush cleaning as this. The denture cleaner gets the gunk off of false teeth, so it has to help the toothbrushes, yes? I mean, we stick the brushes into our mouths, twirl, swirl, scrub and clean with them and place them back into a cup. Those are harboring little germie ermies on them, yes?
Hubs had Rotavirus about a month ago. Since that is highly contagious and ICK! nothing any of us wanted, I started the toothbrush hygiene campaign.
Now if I could only send my child to school dipped into this fine toothbrush cleaner, maybe she'll stop catching stuff.
