How to Stop Bamboo Toothbrushes from Getting Moldy?


Bamboo toothbrushes require more care than regular toothbrushes. The following are the precautions for preventing mold on bamboo toothbrushes.

How to Stop Bamboo Toothbrushes from Getting Moldy?
When not in use, make sure to leave the toothbrush outside to dry. Organic materials can grow mold in warm/humid conditions, so it's just nature's fault.

Biodegradable/natural bamboo handles can also promote mold growth compared to plastic materials. This means making sure the toothbrush has time to dry between uses.

Bamboo toothbrushes require more care than regular toothbrushes. Gently dry with a towel after each use and store upright, preferably in a glass jar/container. Changes in wood color will occur naturally over a period of time, which is normal.

How to sterilize a natural toothbrush?

Sanitizers in the form of hydrogen peroxide are not required to clean bamboo toothbrushes. A normal cleaning routine of cleaning, drying, and upright storage in a glass container is the easiest way to maintain a bamboo toothbrush.

Toothbrushes should generally be replaced every 3-4 months, so if you happen to be sick and feel like your toothbrush may be contaminated or risk spreading contamination, your safest bet is to replace your toothbrush. For peace of mind, you can soak your toothbrush in an antibacterial mouthwash and rinse with water.

However, according to the American Dental Association, there are no commercial products that sanitize toothbrushes, nor are they necessary. "There is insufficient clinical evidence to support that bacterial growth on toothbrushes causes specific adverse oral or systemic health effects."

Allow your toothbrush to air dry in a container so it can stand up without touching other toothbrushes. Avoid sharing toothbrushes!

What do you deal with a bamboo toothbrush?

1. Use pliers to pull the bristles out of the bamboo, or carefully break the toothbrush head.

2. Compost the bamboo part of the toothbrush by discarding it in a domestic or local compost pile.

3. If you don't have access to a compost pile, dispose of it separately in a bio/organic bin.

4. If your bamboo toothbrush contains nylon bristles, these can be recycled. While the amount of plastic is minimal, embracing the full ecological experience is what it's all about!
