Toothbrushes can be a breeding place for germs after an illness, if you use a disposable toothbrush it’s easier to throw it away and get a new one. For all other toothbrushes, soak in a mixture of water and hydrogen peroxide for an hour and rinse thoroughly. Don’t forget to clean your toothbrush holder as well.
Hard surfaces need to be cleaned frequently during and after illness, this includes kitchen counters, units and household furniture. Don’t forget about other objects that you also touch on a regular basis including light switches, stair railings and cabinet handles – these all need to be wiped down with disinfectant to get rid of those nasty germs.
