When recovering from an illness, it can be a good idea to disinfect your toothbrush. Want to know an easy way? Just stick it in your dishwasher! After going through a wash cycle with your dishes, voila...germ free, lickety split! If you do not have a dishwasher, you can soak your toothbrush in a glass of hot water with a drop of bleach....rinse well before using. Happy Health!
