The Scary and Disgusting Truth About Your Toothbrush

Posted by Flipper Museum On August - 12 - 2014Comments Off on The Scary and Disgusting Truth About Your Toothbrush

Flipper Basic - Travel

Your humble old toothbrush might look innocent enough. But it’s a huge bacteria magnet.

A toothbrush can contain over 10 million bacteria including E. coli and Staph, says a University of Manchester study.

“In an unbrushed mouth, there can be as many germs as a dirty bathroom floor,” prosthodontist Dr. Ann Wei told Grandparents.com.

Your toothbrush can be contaminated by the water splashed when we wash our hands, or worse, by bacteria from an open-flushed toilet. Eww.

Nasties that fall from toilet spray remain airborne long enough to settle on surfaces throughout the bathroom.

And if you drop your toothbrush on the floor, the five second rule does not apply.

It picks up airborne bacteria that has settled on the floor and everything else that people traipse through via their feet.

Now that we’ve totally grossed you out, are you ready to start giving your toothbrush the respect it deserves? Here’s how to keep your toothbrush clean:

Get a new brush

You should replace your brush every three to four months, or when the bristles become a bit tattered.

Use the right toothpaste

Some toothpastes are better than others at killing germs. Buy one that contains triclosan or copolymer — it’s better than regular fluoride toothpastes at killing oral bacteria.

Don’t share toothbrushes

Keep your bacteria to yourself. When you’re squeezing toothpaste onto your brush, make sure you don’t press the opening onto the bristles. “It’s better to lay the toothpaste over the brush without physically contacting the toothpaste opening,” says Wei.

Clean your brush thoroughly

Make sure you rinse your brush thoroughly after each use. And occasionally soak it in mouthwash or hydrogen peroxide, especially if you’ve dropped it on the floor.

“I occasionally put mine through the dishwasher,” said a spokesman for the American Dental Association.

Close the toilet lid

Always close the toilet lid before you flush. Every time.

Expose it to air

Dentists say you shouldn’t store your toothbrush in an airtight container. The best way to store your toothbrush is in the medicine cabinet — that way, it still gets enough air, but is protected from external bacteria. And when toothbrushes are stored together, make sure the heads don’t touch.

Secret Hipster

Flipper Panda

Dental health has never really been cool, nor has it meant to be cool but after exploring some of my favourite online stores I’ve found some cute little toothbrush holders such as this panda one from Urban Outfitters, fitted out with suction caps at the back to stick to your nearest bathroom wall and avoid having the bristle head covered in soap. Better yet, you’ll know where your toothbrush is and so will everyone else with the bold and cute animal designs.

Flipper - Elephant & Giraffe

Not digging Pandas? There’s also cartoonish little elephants in baby blue complete with tiny ears and an upturned trunk. Aw, even if it is very cute and a little cheap gift I can get for myself it would be very useless around my house since everyone has electric toothbrushes and the weighty base and handle hides all the gears that make an electronic toothbrush do all the kinetic work for you at the press of a button. Before you gift this to someone, check out what toothbrush they have… as subtly as you can that is. In no way am I telling you to break into your extended family and friends’ houses.

Japan Lucky Cat
Vase Toothbrush Holder

For a communal and kitsch way to share your toothbrushes together, there’s also these Chinese inspired lucky cat’s which come in gold to keep your toothbrushes safe. I’d love to have something like this on my desk and not even bother storing toothbrushes in it, perhaps pens or just have it sitting next to my koala piggy bank which is in mock lucky cat style. I found it under my bed a few days ago and god knows just how long it’s been there- I thought I had broken it then had a mental blank but it was just tucked away under something else.

Even the giraffe is really cute- it must be the pot-belly design of their stomach used to keep the toothbrush bristle head safe, the stumpy little arms and bright colour of the plastic as well as the tiny pinhole eyes and horns atop this guys head.

Propaganda Clone Product

I’m very disappointed by the fact that while I have lost teeth, baby teeth none of them have looked like this. Although when seeing the real thing in person I would probably feel confronted and rather off put by their ugly gnarly appearance. Maybe I’ll just surround myself instead with cute little toothbrush holders such as this golden tooth perfectly suited towards the nuclear family of four. Another things dentists don’t properly warn you about is that when they remove teeth they smell very bad, must be all the calcium carbonate.

I have my eye on a gorgeous thick rug from Urban Outfitters which features a full moon on a black background; it costs $150 + $15 extra postage and then there’s the regular postal fee on top of that but if I ever properly clean my room, sort everything out, get rid of all the dust and weird stuff under my bed and move my drawers and desk over I can clear up a wall for photography and finally set up my tripod for self portrait photographs where you can actually see what I’m wearing. This is also why I’m lusting over a second hand Canon 550D so I can see in the flip screen what the photograph is framing up to look like. The point of that rather long ramble was the fact that if I did order my moon rug I’d also buy myself some monkey floss.

Monkey Floss

Monkey floss is not a type of string that you use to clean between the crevices on your monkey, it is in fact twenty-five metres of banana flavoured tooth floss that is an online exclusive, at a price of just $6 I certainly would be a little more motivated to take care of my teeth. As an added bonus this product is recommended by money dentists…. if such a thing exists out there in the real world.

Cute Find! Flipper Hygienic Toothbrush Holder

I went to Greenhills (A Shopping Centre in Manila, Philippines) recently to purchase some stuff and stumbled upon a store called KIT. I then saw a super cute toothbrush holder. It has a Schnauzer design, and if you’ve been a follower for so long, you would know that my dog is a Schnauzer and I love anything Schnauzer related. My husband and I have a total of 4 Schnauzers (from our 9 dogs) at home. My aunt has 1 who’s the son of 1 of our Schnauzers and we also gave my mum one too. We’re pretty hooked that H and I actually collect Schnauzer items. 🙂

So of course we just had to buy this Flipper Hygienic Toothbrush Holder. It was perfect since we didn’t have any toothbrush holders at home. We only place our toothbrushes in a glass.

Apparently there are ways how to keep your toothbrush holder clean. You have to clean it once a month with warm and soapy water. It removes any bacteria or germs that may have already gotten inside.

IMG_0010

To restore and revitalize its suction, remove suction caps and soak it in hot water for a couple of minutes.

It’s pretty easy to use too. And it doesn’t need too much effort in opening and closing. Simply apply a little bit of pressure with your toothbrush to close it and lift the toothbrush slowly to open it.

If I had found this sooner, I would have given these as gifts. They also have other designs. This is from the Puppy Collection. From what I saw, they had Yorkshire, Terrier, Beagle and Labrador. Aside from this collection, they also have an animal collection which comprises of cow, chicken, duck, etc.

Well I just thought I’d share this with you just in case you’re into cute stuff too! 🙂

National Children’s Dental Health Month and My Flipper

Posted by Flipper Museum On July - 8 - 2013Comments Off on National Children’s Dental Health Month and My Flipper

Mommy Katie
February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, and to get the kids excited about their dental hygiene, I was sent a couple of the very adorable and fun My Flipper’s to review. I know that with my kids, it is not that they do not like to brush their teeth, it is that they have to be reminded on a regular basis to do so. So when I find products that will make the remembering to brush teeth ordeal a easier one, I like to share the product with others.

With the Flipper, I have them hanging up above the sink, so when my kids go to wash their hands, they will see their toothbrushes in their Flipper and then remember to brush their teeth. I also like that with the Flippers that we were sent, they are easy to open and close, so storing the toothbrushes is easy and getting them out to use is easy as well!

Also, when they use the Flipper, I know that they are storing their toothbrushes and they are keeping them clean and hygienic. There are so many Flippers to choose from, so you are sure to find a fun one that your kids can enjoy as well. Check out the Flipper online store today and also take advantage of a great discount when you use the code ‘dentalhealth‘ at checkout!

Flipper – Bathroom Protection by Tonia

Posted by Flipper Museum On July - 5 - 2013Comments Off on Flipper – Bathroom Protection by Tonia

Unorganized Mommy of 3
So, are you like me and have the toothbrush in one of those holders sitting on the counter? The brush totally exposed to everything flying around it? Yup, thought so! I never really thought about it because this is where my toothbrush was growing up. But, think about it – how many germs get splashed on the counter from the sink, and from the toilet (if it is right beside your counter) and when you clean! Yuck!

This is where Flipper comes in! This is my daughter’s flipper – she is really into Hello Kitty right now. The belly opens, where you put the toothbrush to keep it protected. And, on the back are two suction cups to attach to the mirror or tile. I actually took it apart to see how it worked and to see how “kid proof” it was. And it was very easy to put together. If your kids are like mine, they like to “disect” things to see how they work.

Hello Kitty Frog

Flipper meets ADA and CDC guidelines, which include, storing your toothbrush upright, it allows your brush to dry before next use, and makes sure your brush doesn’t touch others for cross contamination of germs. The design protects it from the germs floating trough the air It is also recommended to clean your Flipper once a month, which can be done in hot, soapy water – or in the dishwasher. Yes, it is dishwasher safe!

Flipper Hello Kitty Frog

In the Flipper, the brush is up off the counter and covered – protected from the germs that splash around. It is very easy to use. First, to open the flipper for the first time, there is a tab you can push to make it open, then you insert the toothbrush and push back. To take the toothbrush out, all you do is grab the handle of the brush and pull toward you, the Flipper will open. To return it, just put the toothbrush back in the opening, while holding onto the handle and push back gently and it will close again.

They have several different designs, for kids and adults! Not only do they have these for toothbrushes, they also have them for razors as well.

Check out everything on their website.  Also be sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter.

Disclosure: I recieved the above product free for review purposes. All opinions are always 100% my own.

Playdate Crashers: Flipper Toothbrush Holder Review by Krista

Playdate Crasher
I don’t want to freak you out, but your bathroom is filthy.

It’s not that you don’t do a great job cleaning it, it’s just that bathrooms are gross. Think about all that happens in there. Wait, scratch that. Let’s not think about it, because really? Yuck. We’ve discussed before how yucky bathtub toys are, but today let’s focus on an item that is also exposed to disgusting germs AND THEN GOES INTO YOUR MOUTH. Uh huh. Your toothbrush.

Flipper Toothfairy

Where do you keep your toothbrush? Do you leave it sitting out on your counter or maybe in one of those nice little toothbrush holders? Um, did you know that fecal matter is found on toothbrushes if they’re kept in a bathroom? Yeah…And even Mythbusters investigated this and confirmed it. (And if you’re really curious about this “poop germs on your toothbrush” thing, here’s an article from The Straight Dope about it.) Basically, your toilet is spewing filth around your bathroom and surrounding areas every time you flush.

So what can you do? Short of locking yourself in a clean room and never seeing the light of day, you need to of course clean your bathroom (and the rest of your house) regularly, but now there’s a simple product that will help shield your toothbrush from everyday germs and general yuckiness.

The Flipper toothbrush holder attaches to your bathroom mirror and holds your toothbrush inside! It easily opens when you pull the toothbrush handle toward you when it’s time to brush and when you push the toothbrush back into the Flipper, it closes around it. (Click here to see a quick video demo of how the product works!) I picked one up at the ABC Kids Expo this year and we’ve been using it for several weeks — We love it!

It’s super simple to use, is dishwasher safe, and solves a problem! Flipper toothbrush holders also meet every guideline for toothbrush care that has been established by the Center for Disease Control and the American Dental Association! They even can be used as a travel toothbrush holder.

Flipper toothbrush holders come in a variety of styles: animals, dinosaurs, puppies, Hello Kitty, NFL teams, and the modern-looking but not cutesy-cute Bean. Flipper also makes razor holders! They are all about $7.00 or less and can be purchased at MyFlipperUSA.com or you can search their website’s store locator for a retailer near you. You can also purchase them at Amazon.com (if you use the affiliate link box on PlaydateCrashers.com, a % of the sales goes to keep PlaydateCrashers.com going!), all Babies R Us stores and select Toys R Us and Giant Eagle stores.

These functional and cute toothbrush holders would be a perfect stocking stuffer for Christmas this year!
