How clean is your toothbrush?

In the quest to maintain perfect dental hygiene, one little known fact rarely taken into account is that your toothbrush can be the main culprit in spreading germs and bacteria. As a result, a British company has developed a simple and cost-effective brush-sterilizing system that, in tests, has shown a dramatic reduction (virtually zero) of the microbial counts between brushes using this system and others that are air-dried.

The Steri-Brush unit consists of an antibacterial toothbrush holder and sterilizing solution. Simply fill the color-coded tow-cup or four-cup Steri-Brush Unit with the antibacterial solution and place brushes in, head first. The solution should be replaced every other day.
