It is important to remember that you should replace your brush head every three months. This is because bacteria can build up in an electric toothbrush head the same way as in a manual toothbrush.
Rinse the top of your brush head under running water after every use. Remove brush head if you want to more thoroughly clean your brush head, and rinse inside the brush head and in nooks and crannies.
Electric brush handle
Step 1: Wipe with a damp cloth
Wipe the handle with a damp, not wet, cloth. Do not submerge it in water, but use only a small amount of warm water on the rag.
Step 2: Clean grooves and ridges
Use a moist toothbrush to wash between the grooves in the brush handle. A tip can be to lightly dry the wet toothbrush with the damp cloth to ensure there’s not too much water. Wipe with cloth to remove any residue.
Step 3: Wipe again
Finish off by wiping the brush handle with a clean damp cloth. You can use an antibacterial wipe if you want, but if you wash your hands before brushing your teeth, this step is superfluous. It is important not to submerge the electric toothbrush in alcohol or other disinfectants. Do not use harsh chemicals to wash either the brush head or brush handle.
