Now that my daughter is older we are spending more time traveling. We are enjoying road trips, camping and have even taken a plane for one our vacations. But one thing I hate when we are traveling is that our toothbrushes are either wrapped in plastic bags, tucked between our clothes in the dark or loose in the luggage. I worry about the bacteria that could, and probably is, growing and multiplying on our toothbrushes. I try to run them on hot scalding water when we get to our location before we use them. And I have even thought of buying toothbrushes just for the trip. But that can be expensive buying multiple toothbrushes for each little weekend trip. When I was asked if I would like to try out the Oral Stericlean UV portable toothbrush sanitizer in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion I agreed. I was hoping this would help put my mind at ease about bacteria growth on our toothbrushes.
When the oral stericlean UV portable toothbrush sanitizer arrived I was eager to try it out. The first thing I did was take it into our bathroom where all the toothbrushes are. I took one out of the cup and followed the directions. I place the toothbrush with the bristles facing the UV light area and shut the case. Since it takes 6-8 minutes I placed it on the counter and I went and put away some laundry. When I came back it was finished. When I took the toothbrush out I couldn’t see any difference but I knew it was cleaner because of the UV light. I repeated this with my daughter’s toothbrush. It was super simple to use.
My daughter has a habit of taking her toothbrush out of the bathroom and setting it down throughout the house. Sometimes she does this right after we’ve just opened a brand new one. Normally I would toss the toothbrush once found, even if it look perfectly fine. But now that I have the oral stericlean I will be placing those found toothbrushes in there are letting her use them again. I feel confident that the UV light is killing the bacteria on the toothbrush. I really like the portable toothbrush sanitizer. I can take it on any trip we go on or I can use it at home. It’s also super simple to use so that even my child can do it.
