Germs from your mouth, combined with food that gets trapped in the bristles of your toothbrush, can allow bacteria to enter your body through the gums and make you sick. It’s estimated that toothbrushes harbor hundreds of millions of viruses and cold- and infection-causing bacteria. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, even after being rinsed clean with water, your toothbrush may still be harboring germs, which is why you should sanitize it a few times each week.

We always travel with one of these. And at home, we rely on Violight’s Zapi Toothbrush Sanitizer. It kills 99.9 percent of the bacteria on your toothbrush that would otherwise seep into your gums. The blinking light lets us know that our toothbrush is being deeply cleaned. As an added bonus, it sanitizes both manual brushes and electronic brush heads-very versatile.
