Fun Things You Can Use Old Toothbrushes For
As a provider of dental care in Lincoln, California, Tooth Spa Dentistry recommends their patients that they replace their worn-out, germy toothbrush with a new one every three months. But most people either forget or resist getting rid of something that is still “working.” Maybe you’re also concerned about the environment and don’t want to add to the problems that pollution poses.
To encourage good oral practices, we offer these fun suggestions – in addition to our preventive dental care in California – that you can do with your used toothbrush to avoid feeling “wasteful”:
- Scrub oily areas on your face with your toothbrush.
The bristles are perfect for removing embedded dirt and oil that clogs pores.
- Use them to remove clothes stains.
Apply a stain remover on the spot and gently scrub with your used toothbrush until the stain is gone.
- Use them to clean kitchen appliances.
Toasters, microwaves, coffee machines, anything you like! Grab your used toothbrush and get scrubbing off those crumbs and stains that fall into those hard to reach places.
- Clean grout grime out of your tiles.
Combine baking soda and water to make a paste and dunk your used toothbrush in to clear out funky grime between kitchen or bathroom tiles.
