Germ-Free Toothbrush: Most of us only think about our toothbrushes the two (or more!) times per day that we go to pick them up, layer on that toothpaste, and start brushing. BUT, when we’re not giving them the love they deserve, they may be exposed to germs and bacteria unidentifiable by the common eye. This article provides some quick tips for how to keep your toothbrush germ-free.
