How clean is your toothbrush?

How clean is your toothbrush? No really, how clean is your toothbrush? This is something I had never thought about until I was introduced to IntelliDent Toothbrush Shields. Of course I knew that people shouldn’t share their toothbrush with others and they should be replaced every so often but there’s some scary facts that I had no clue about! Did you know that just by flushing your toilet, a radius of up to 6 feet can be contaminated? Um yuck! I also didn’t realize that by keeping all of our toothbrushes in a cup on the counter, even though they are not touching is a really bad idea. The same with keeping them in a medicine cabinet, not a good idea either. =(

    Great product and tested to keep away 99.9% of airborne and surface bacteria. I love to try out this product in the future and get rid of our plastic protectors.

  • Jessica Simms

    Wow I love this! Not only would this be awesome to use at home, but perfect to use when traveling. I need to get some of these for our upcoming summer travels.

  • CourtneyLynne

    Ughhh it grosses me out to think how dirty our bathrooms really are. Doesn’t matter how big of a neat freak you are the germs are still there

  • Shanéy Maharaj

    Your heading made me think a lot because we leave them opened in the bathroom which isnt really the cleanest place in the house…

  • Chrystal | Nevermore Lane

    I have heard the bathroom isn’t as clean as what you think it is. I keep my toothbrush out of site for that reason. These are a very useful product.

  • Maggie Branch

    I’ve got to admit the dirt and germs on my tooth brush kind of gross me out. Im really excited to learn that these shields exist!

  • Tatanisha Pitts-Worthey

    We need this!! My boys would always lost their toothbrush covers. This is very handy in keeping our toothbrushes clean.

  • Christie

    I immediately want to throw my toothbrush away! I bet it’s covered in bacteria, these shields sound amazing

  • Paula Schuck

    I just changes all of our toothbrushes on the weekend. I love this idea. I am going to buy some to try.

  • Ann Bacciaglia

    This is a fantastic idea. I need to get some of these for my home. It would help you get more life out of your toothbrush.

  • Kelli @ 3 Boys and a Dog

    I think I will go throw out the toothbrushes and get new now with shields! You just assume it’s clean in its holder! Thanks for sharing!

  • ricci

    This sounds like a great invention. Bathrooms really are nasty places and there are so many things we use in there everyday!!

  • Chubskulit Rose

    This is something I need to buy. You don’t really know what bacteria goes on toothbrushes.

  • Angie

    Hopefully pretty clean, I just changed it! Those things look so handy though-I really should get some.

  • lisa

    This sounds like a great product. I know when our toothbrushes are exposed to the air in the bathroom, who knows what kind of bacteria is lurking!

  • Jesica H

    I ABSOLUTELY NEED THESE!!!! My kids especially are gross.. Brush their teeth, and then brush the mirrors teeth (reflection) add more toothpaste and repeat… yuck. Atleast, my toothbrush is safe in another bath room! Would love to have it covered though 🙂

  • Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle

    I SO want this! I don’t even want to think about how much bacteria might be on my toothbrush. Yuck!

  • Robin (Masshole Mommy)

    Honestly, it’s something I have never really thought about, but now that you mention it – I need some of these shields.
