"COVID-19 has reminded us about airborne illnesses and just how easily viruses can be transmitted through the air and surfaces," said
Steripod suggests the following tips when refreshing your oral care devices this fall:
- Replace your toothbrush (manual brushes, heads for electric, and toothbrush protectors) at least every 90 days.
- If you are sick, replace your toothbrush at the beginning of your illness and again at the end, when you begin to feel better. This will decrease the likelihood of reinfection and spreading the illness throughout your household.

- Purchase a toothbrush protector, like Steripod®, to prevent airborne particulates from settling on brush bristles.
