Things You Will Need:
*Antibacterial mouth wash like Listerine
What you will need to do:
Brush your teeth as you normally would, but instead of just tossing your toothbrush on the edge of the sink or the counter top, take a couple seconds to make sure it will be clean for your next brushing.
NEVER put a cap on your toothbrush! Even if you are travelling. This prevents your toothbrush from drying out and allows bacteria to grow on the brush head. It needs to get air and circulation to dry out and prevent bacteria.
Fill a cup with Listerine or another antibacterial mouth wash and put your toothbrush inside of it with the brush down. Let this sit for a couple minutes while you continue to get ready
Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan and place your toothbrush into the boiling water. Boil for about 20 minutes. This may make your toothbrush fade in color, but it definitely kills the germs.
You can also spray a little bit of hydrogen peroxide on the toothbrush after each use to keep the bacteria and germs at bay.
