The mistake we all make with our toothbrush
The toothbrush is a breeding ground for bacteria. These proliferate in the hair of the brush and can cause serious oral infections. Various bad habits promote the multiplication of germs.
To avoid bacteria, it is important to clean the bathroom frequently, wash the shower towels frequently, and change the toothbrush regularly. However, some bad habits promote the growth of germs. In an interview with the Daily Mail, Stephanie Taylor, intimate health expert and CEO of StressNoMore, revealed several common bathroom mistakes that should be avoided.
In the bathroom sink, we often find the same elements: face creams, hand soap and especially the toothbrush. According to Stephanie Taylor, the toothbrush is a breeding ground for bacteria. Germs on this object can cause mouth infections. In most cases, they are caused by Escherichia Coli (E. coli), a bacteria that takes up residence in the digestive tract. Therefore, the specialist offers several tips to limit the risk of infection.
What are the bad habits to avoid in the bathroom?
The specialist recommends protecting the objects placed in the sink, especially if they are near the toilet. This is because when a person flushes the toilet without first closing the toilet seat, bacteria inside can get onto the toothbrush. As a precaution, she recommends lowering the toilet seat before flushing the toilet. Another tip is to store your toothbrush in a closet or buy head protection to prevent the spread of germs.
The specialist indicates that wet towels cause bacteria to multiply. "Germs in the toilet gravitate to the bathroom and land on used towels," he explained. Therefore, the specialist advises putting them to dry in another room, washing them at least once a week and never exchanging them with members of your family.
