Ah, the humble toothbrush; such a simple tool and yet one that still has a myriad of uses when it has had its day cleaning your pearly whites. These uses vary from cleaning several appliances, being an integral part of your beauty routine to even being used in a craft activity. Did you know there is such a thing as a toothbrush bracelet ? Now that’s a project you could really sink your teeth into!
It is recommended by dentists that kids clean their teeth for two minutes, so get your hands on one of the many toothbrush songs and away you go. It’s no coincidence these crazy, catchy songs last for two minutes. However, be careful which you choose as many are renowned earworms that will continually play in your head, particularly when you are trying to get to sleep.
Like most things these days, there is a plethora of toothbrushes on the market; manual, electric , soft bristles, hard bristles, the list is endless. There is even such a thing as a chewable one that comes in different flavors and is discarded after use. This toothbrush would be very handy when travelling.
Whichever you choose, be sure to use it properly and it will help keep that decay at bay. Toothbrushes should be changed every couple of months.
Now excuse me, I must go and brush my teeth…
“You don’t have to brush all your teeth, just the ones you want to keep.”
