Before Flu Season Starts Each Year, You May Want Some Extra Toothbrushes On Hand
Posted on 10/5/2020 by Brandon Cooley
We want you to know how to stay safe this flu season. A toothbrush is such an innocuous item. None of us take to heart the true impact of this noble little tool. Our mouth feels fresh after we use it and we like that so we use it many times each day. That toothbrush can turn deadly if it becomes contaminated and we should all be ready just in case this happens. After all, nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes. Allowing your toothbrush to come in contact with most anything can make that little brush a germ carrier and bacteria is everywhere. Be prepared and stay safe.
What Steps Can We Take To Be Sure Our Toothbrush Is Always Safe
Like most things in life, proper preparedness is not that difficult, but it does take some planning. We do the laundry so we have extra socks to wear should we soil the pair we have on. We purchase an extra bottle of milk for our fridge in case we run out of the first bottle. These are both good examples, but what about our toothbrush? We know you have a busy life but being prepared for flu season should be at the top of your to do list. Get extra toothbrushes and always keep a few in your bathroom just like those extra socks. If your toothbrush becomes contaminated for any reason, you will be ready and will not be tempted to use that old toothbrush. We recommend you never take chances when it comes to your health and safety.
Remember To Put Toothbrushes On Your Shopping List
When you know flu season is approaching, you like to have lots of chicken soup in your cupboards. Of all the items you need to be prepared for the flu season, one of the most important things should be extra toothbrushes.
