The other day I walked into the bathroom to find Nelle vigorously scrubbing Grammy's hairbrush handle - with her own little toothbrush.
Ah, she's a thoughtful one, my girl ...
But it reminded me that now and then I might like to give our toothbrushes a clean, too. My favourite way is to soak the toothbrush heads in plain white vinegar for a day every week or so. (As we know from pickling) vinegar kills mold and bacteria, so it's a super-easy, non-toxic way to disinfect something you put into your mouth a couple of times a day.
After it's had a good vinegar-soak, just rinse your toothbrush in warm water before using it. And - if you feel inclined - use the vinegar to give your bathroom sink a good wash as you tip it out.
