How do you remove bristles from a bamboo toothbrush?

Most bamboo toothbrush bristles are made of nylon and must be removed. Pull out the bristles with a pair of pliers. When you do this, you will notice a small metal staple used to tighten the handle's sticks. In the trash, put the bristle and small staples.

Find a wide variety of bamboo toothbrushes. Our toothbrush handle is made of recyclable bamboo, and the bristles are made of BPA-free nylon.

Make sure you remove the bristles before the toothbrush reaches its final rest point (the compost). I thought it would be a little tricky before I removed them for the first time but not. Just pick up a couple of pins and pull on the bristles. I think it works best to remove a quick diagonal motion.

So, three months have passed, and your bamboo toothbrush has become clogged with bacteria and worn out? We listed three steps without waste, of a Bamboo toothbrush:

Step 1 – Remove bristles from the toothbrush

Step 2 – Bamboo handle disposal

Step 3 – Reuse your bamboo toothbrush or upcycle it

We are deeply committed to reuse and recycle. So, please follow some cool DIY steps to get your Bamboo toothbrush properly ready for use.


  1. Take out the bristles from the bamboo toothbrush.

How to remove the bamboo toothbrush bristles?

  • To complete this task, identify a good place in the table, a corner of the gallery, or porch. Throughout, keep a positive attitude.
  • Take a pair of pliers or tweezers, a tray, or a kitchen towel to confine the removed bristles and prevent them from spreading out.
  • Take the bristles from the bristle's head and remove them.

Tip: Avoid too many attempts at once. When pulling, we recommend making a slight rolling motion. Isn't it much easier now?

Finally, you will get a lightweight pile after the removal is finished.

How can the bristles be recycled?

Be sure that you don't put these bristles in a recycling bin.

You should place the bristles in a plastic recycling bin instead of a mixed recycling bin.

Remember: The bristles for mixed recyclable bins are too small; they will probably not be recycled.

In addition, we recommend reusing a plastic bottle instead of throwing the small bristles into the large plastic recycling bin. Don't twist your nose. It is an eco-brick to maintain all plastic waste tightly in one place.

  1. Bamboo handles dispose

Now we want to ensure that your 100% biodegradable handle is naturally broken in the environment.
