Just as baking soda has a range of uses as a household cleaner, your toothbrush can have a range of uses as well. Like cleaning dishes and dishesware, your toothbrush can be a great cleaning tool for any kitchen where cooking isn’t done. And, since your brush gets dirty from the foods you brush, it’s easy to keep it and keep it looking the way you want it to.

First let’s discuss using baking soda to clean dishes and dishesware or to clean counters or counters top as they might be used on a daily basis. When you buy baking soda, be sure it’s labeled non-iodized – it becomes a white paste/solution when it’s handled as soap-like cleaner of food byproducts or food particles. You can buy baking soda from any baking soda manufacturer or store. The main ingredient in baking soda is a sodium bicarbonate, and as a result it becomes a paste on contact with acidic foods, it tends to clean with a strong abrasive feeling as it cleanses and will not be gentle but aggressive cleaning – hence the name baking soda. If it’s baking soda that does all the work for you, you might want to consider adding citric acid (i.e. in some formulations, baking soda is made up of 50% citric acid which is also the main ingredient in Citrus Aurantium Bergamia, a common citrus that provides citrus citrus cleaning power and is used and recommended to add to baking soda.

It’s important to know what you’re brushing on when you’re baking soda is used to clean dishes, counters, or counters top as they may be used on a daily basis. It’s also important to keep in mind that baking soda tends to be gentle on acidic foods as it can clean them quickly and effortlessly. It will not harm either cooked foods or anything else on the surface. It works well by making a paste that gently cleanses countertops and counters top, and by the way it doesn’t discolor either cooked or non-cooked food.

If your toothbrush has a strong abrasive feeling or you’re using it too hard to take off all the food in the bowl or counter top as you brush, your toothbrush is probably not cleaning enough with baking soda or you have not thoroughly rinsed your toothbrush properly after brushing. Let’s talk how to properly rinsing your toothbrush.

I recommend a toothbrush rinse and rest for three to five minutes. Let it air dry (this process should only take about 10 to 15 minutes).

When air drying or rinsing a toothbrush, do this from the back of your mouth to allow the toothbrush to run down the back of your throat. Don’t be worried if the toothbrush is not visible, as you won’t be able to see it once it’s rinsed. There should be a very small amount of toothpaste that seems to have come out of the inside of your mouth, as if a toothpaste was squeezed out. When your toothbrush is clean and dry, it’s time to begin to clean your teeth with a paste and a very gentle abrasive cleaner tool.

Using a toothpaste toothbrush can be a great tool to use, but it’s important to properly rinsing a toothbrush and toothpaste, not just because it’s a quick and easy way to wash your teeth with a less irritating and less aggressive method but to protect it from the acids on food products and foods that have been kept outside your mouth.
