How to clean your toothbrush

Everyone knows that it's recommended to replace the toothbrush every 3 months, but I'm not sure I know anyone who actually does that. The toothbrushes are of such high quality now that they can live much longer than that IF you clean them well (and don't chew on them). It is not enough to just rinse them thoroughly after use. This is how I "deep clean" ours.

Fill a cup (one per each toothbrush) with 1:1 solution of hydrogen peroxide and hot water. You don't need much, but it has to cover the head of the brush. Put a toothbrush in there head down. Leave for a few hours. If you around, you may want to swish the brush sometimes, but it is not essential.

There's going to be some fizzing. All the yucky stuff that was on the brush will fall off. Rinse. Enjoy your clean brush.
