I've taken an accidental hiatus from blogging these past few weeks. Baby was sick, and after my household recovered from THAT, I had a friend visiting from Chicago... and now I'm in bed/on the couch trying to recover from strep. I promise to have something interesting to say once I'm well. :)
But meanwhile... I've talked about The Thrifty Couple on here before, and they're having another giveaway!! This time, it's $40 toward toothbrush sanitizing products. I'll admit, I probably wouldn't have been interested in this giveaway yesterday. But this morning, after diagnosing me with strep, my doctor said to replace all toothbrushes in my household, and that got me thinking: even when it's not strep, shouldn't we take better care of our toothbrushes? Husband and I use high-end electric toothbrushes, and the heads last longer than your standard Oral-B from the drugstore, so that just means there is a higher buildup of germs on them. My mom mentioned that she used to boil our toothbrushes weekly when we were kids, but I don't know many people who follow that kind of practice.
These products involved in this giveaway use germicidal UV light bulb power to remove up to 99.9% of toothbrush bacteria. Is that a replacement for regular sanitization/replacement of toothbrushes? No. But it seems like a great idea for daily care! Enter the giveaway here!!
