I don’t know about you but my dentist gives me a free toothbrush with every visit. Which is nice but we were starting to accumulate a bunch here at the HQ. I have an electric toothbrush that I use and Scott has a preferred brand of toothbrush that he uses. These toothbrushes from the dentist were not our style and weren’t getting used. But I didn’t want to throw them away because that seemed like a waste.
I have discovered that a lot can be done with those toothbrushes! I use them for cleaning, not my teeth, but my house! They are perfect for fitting into widow sills to scrub those out after a long winter. Great for cleaning tile and getting into the nooks and crannies of a shower stall.
They also come in handy for cleaning drains. I don’t particularly like sticking my hand down a drain to clean it, that’s where the toothbrush comes in. It’s got reach and can scrub and rid the drain of any messes without me getting dirty.
They are also great for cleaning computer keyboards and the mouse to the computer! There are loads of other uses for toothbrushes, those just happen to be a few of my favorite.
The next time you get a new toothbrush from your dentist, or when you’re about to toss out your old one for new, recycle and reuse instead!
