  • What recommendations do you have for cleaning toothbrushes? Specifically, if I soak my brush in a cup of Listerine, should I use a new cup and fresh Listerine daily or can I reuse the same cup and Listerine for days at a time? Thanks, Dan

    • I used to describe a Listerine/toothbrush cleaning routine (where people put a few drops on the brush head, swished, rinsed and then stood in a cup to dry).
      New studies have shown us that the most effective part of toothbrush cleaning system is the drying part.
      Now I simply recommend that people give their toothbrush 24 HOURS TO DRY between uses. This means you have a brush for the morning and another for the night etc.
      You can additionally do some Listerine cleaning if you are fighting gum disease or cavities and have time – but the 24 hour drying is KEY!!!
