Can I boil a bamboo toothbrush?

Can I boil a bamboo toothbrush?

Boiling a bamboo toothbrush can be considered a cleaning method. But the best cleaning routine takes only 3 steps after each brushing.

You may want to boil your bamboo toothbrush if you see the handle getting moldy. We need to remind you that bamboo is an organic material, thus porous. And this appearance might be a consequence of not drying properly your bamboo toothbrush after each use. If you skip this important second step, you’ll get a pool of water at the bottom of your cup and naturally moist will penetrate the bamboo handle.

Also take notice that hot water doesn't fully sterilize neither the bamboo handle nor the bristles. Moreover, it might deform the bristles on your toothbrush. Straight bristles are more effective in cleaning your teeth and gums and not warped ones.

Warning tip: Never put your bamboo toothbrush in the dishwasher or microwave, intending to destroy germs.

In any case, when it’s time to replace your bamboo toothbrush and you decide to upcycle or reuse it, you may boil it in hot water for a few minutes. Bear in mind to mark it to distinguish its second life and not mix it up with the regular bamboo toothbrush.

So, today is a good day to embrace a new caring routine for your bamboo toothbrush. Once you start following these 3 steps - rinse, dry and store - it will become an habit and your bamboo toothbrush will look more clean for as long as you need to use it.
