Check your toothbrush. If the bristles are bent and frayed, add a new one to your shopping list.
How to do it
Give your toothbrush a once-over before the next time you brush. If the bristles are bent and frayed or you can't really remember the last time you changed it, add a new toothbrush to your shopping list.
Why it matters
The recommended lifespan for a toothbrush is just three months, but many of us keep using the same old brush for much longer! Toothbrushes become infested with bacteria, bacteria that moves into your mouth. Most is harmless, but over time, more and more gets in there. If you think about what a toothbrush does for a living, you are doing yourself and the toothbrush a favor by moving on.
The earliest identified use of the word toothbrush in English occurs in an autobiography written in 1690.
Done recently. Caught some toothbrushes on sale and just replaced the old ones.
Was at the dentist and got a new toothbrush!!!
i love brushing my teeth and change my toothbrush regularly, probably monthly cause i kill them so quickly
Old toothbrushes are great for cleaning little things and corners, and even polishing some jewelry... and splatter paint projects. That's definitely motivation to get a new brush.
Ours are getting frayed a little. We change our toothbrush's on the last day of every third month. it just so happens that June is the 2nd third month this year. We already have new ones starting July 1st, for the 3 w/ teeth and a gum stimulator for the 4 month old.
I do this every three to four months.................
I change my toothbrush every month.
