17. Extend the life span of your toothbrush
Dip your toothbrush in saltwater for a few hours. What this accomplishes is easy: It kills off certain bacteria and other germs and gives your toothbrush a fresh smell. In turn, you can use your toothbrush much longer than you normally would and save some money.
Needless to say, you still have to clean your toothbrush properly after each use. Baking soda or mouth wash can help for a more thorough cleaning every couple of days or once a week. All you have to do is to again dip the toothbrush in the cleaning solutions and give it a good scrub with your fingers.
Make sure to rinse your toothbrush thoroughly after applying baking soda. Keep in mind, that it’s healthy for your teeth and gums to replace your toothbrush regularly. Salt can not prolong the toothbrush’s life circle indefinitely.
