Toothbrushes stored on bathroom counters or sink tops can easily collect any of the germs lurking in the bathroom. Harmful microorganisms such as Salmonella choleraesuls and Listeria monocytogenes can collect on the bristles. E coli flies several feet from the toilet every time it is flushed. When several members of the household store their toothbrushes together, illness can spread from brush to brush.

Toothbrush sanitizers can get rid of these dangerous germs by cleaning with ultraviolet light. You should look for the following if you want to buy a sanitizer:
  • Look for a model that is about the size of a cup so that it stores easily on your bathroom counter or sink top. A bulky, inconvenient unit is less likely to be used regularly.
  • The sanitizer should have a cap that covers the unit when the ultraviolet bulb is activated. The unit should not run unless the cap is in place, as looking directly at the bulb can damage your eyes.
  • The sanitizers should run on an electric charger. Battery run models need replacement batteries too frequently, which is both costly and another reason for them not being used.
  • The sanitizer should clean your toothbrush in about 10 minutes. Look for models that do up to 4 toothbrushes at the same time.
Remember to replace your toothbrush about every six months for the most effective tooth cleaning results.
