How to care for a bamboo toothbrush?

Bamboo is a natural material that preserves best in a dry place. Closed toothbrush cups that collect water are not ideal. It's best to keep your toothbrush in an open-air toothbrush holder or any other dry place.

Before first use

As with all toothbrushes, rinse the handle and bristles thoroughly with water before first use. Some bamboo chips may remain on the toothbrush head and handle after manufacture. This is harmless but needs to be washed off. You can wash and care for the soft botanical bristles like a traditional toothbrush.

Your bamboo handle

Bamboo is a natural wood material that will fade over time. Bamboo that enters the mouth at the top of the toothbrush may begin to lighten and fade with use. This is normal! It will not affect your brushing experience.

How long can a bamboo toothbrush last?

Your bamboo toothbrush can be used for 3 to 4 months. With proper care, our eco-bamboo toothbrushes will last as long as traditional plastic toothbrushes. The American Dental Association recommends changing your toothbrush every 3 months or when the bristles are worn out.

How do I clean my bamboo toothbrush?

There are two things you need to do to clean a bamboo toothbrush: wash it thoroughly, dry it thoroughly, and store it in a clean container or holder, so you have a better chance of keeping your toothbrush in top condition.

What to do with your bamboo toothbrush?

You can dispose of your bamboo toothbrush by composting the handle and recycling the bristles. Read more about how to properly dispose of a bamboo toothbrush below.

Reuse or compost handle

Bare toothbrush handles can be disposed of in recyclable bins and returned safely to the soil within 6 months. Or you can compost in your own home. However, the handle is a very good quality piece of bamboo - feel free to reuse it!

Packaging handling
