Can bamboo toothbrushes get moldy?

Yes, if they are not properly cleaned, bamboo toothbrushes can get mouldy. It is necessary to remember that bamboo is an organic material, seeing a mould growth quicker than a plastic toothbrush.

Biodegradable/natural bamboo handles also promote mould growth faster than plastic materials.

This entails allowing enough time for the toothbrush to dry between uses. Bamboo toothbrushes necessarily require a little more attention than regular toothbrushes.

Your bamboo toothbrush only takes three steps to get well. The habits are over when you learn the key to stop your bamboo toothbrush moulding after brushing your teeth. 

The primary step in preventing moisture and mould is to dry the bristles and handle with a cloth.

So simple. Because if you allow your bamboo toothbrush to drink in the cup, it will darken the frequent use.

It is also essential where and how you store your bamboo toothbrush. The bathroom provides a natural, damp atmosphere.

Particularly when the shower is used several times a day and is common to families and friends who share an apartment. Consider keeping each bamboo toothbrush in separate cups or holders and dry out in the open air.

While rinsing and drying your bamboo toothbrush with a cloth will significantly improve, air temperature is also essential. So please don't put it in a bathroom cabinet, vanity case, or even a cap after that. Any of these will promote mould growth.

Keeping your bamboo toothbrush upright in the open air will allow it to dry out between uses and prevent bacteria buildup.

Be aware that your bamboo toothbrush does not take this extra loving care. You make sure you keep the maintenance up to date until it is time to replace it.

How long should I use my bamboo toothbrush?

You can use your bamboo toothbrush as long as your standard toothbrush. So, we suggest, according to dental hygienists, replacing your toothbrush every 2-3 months.

Besides this schedule, it will also depend on how often you use your bamboo toothbrush and how you use it. Some people brush twice a day, some four times a day morning and before bedtime or after each meal.

Some people brush their teeth with softness and care, and others quickly scrub their teeth and gums harder. The result is that a hat bends or bends the toothbrush bristles.

Remember: kids' toothbrushes have to be replaced more often than adult's as they may tend to brush harder.

What is a bamboo toothbrush made of?

The toothbrush handle is made of bamboo, which is completely organic, biodegradable, and naturally antibacterial. The bristles of our bamboo toothbrush are made of BPA-free nylon.

Our bamboo toothbrush is made of organic bamboo.

We also looked for a more natural replacement for our bristles, but nylon remained the best option.

Pig hairs are also an option for a completely natural toothbrush but studies show a preference for nylon bristles due to their feeling and effectiveness.

Moreover, we focused on having an environmentally friendly solution including the packaging. As a result, the toothbrush is packaged in a kraft paper bag.

Look for the following unique qualities and benefits:

  • Bamboo is technically a type of grass, and it grows like grass, sometimes reaching three or four feet in a single day. This means there's a lot of it, and when it's harvested, it transforms quickly enough not to harm the ecosystem.
  • Bamboo consumes greenhouse gases and produces 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than trees.
  • It lives while serving us - Bamboo roots stay in place after harvesting, trying to prevent soil erosion and retaining nutrients for the subsequent crop.
  • It is completely natural and free of chemicals. There is no need for chemicals. There are no toxins.
  • Surprising hardness is 34% harder than white oak and 2,5 times more durable than widely used wood.
