    Um. ....no. Not since they cost less than $5. Throw the damn thing out and get a new one, cheapskate! {joking}
    I know, I know...you prolly wash it because of germs, bacteria....or whatever. Honestly, I think the extra hot water is probably going to wear out the bristles (an out-of-date name, eh?) sooner. IMO.

    no, the tooth brush is up in the bathroom the dishwasher is down in the kitchen, I am not going allll the way upstairs to get the brush bring it all the way back down again just to wash it so that when I go to shower and brush my teeth in the shower I realise I forgot my damned tooth brush which is sitting in the damned dishwasher...

    I do soak it in a little peroxide though

    Bristles. Duh. LOL

    I didn't say it was out of use...just out of date...since we don't use boars hair (bristles) in toothbrushes any more. Thank God.
    BTW: Did you know the toothbrush was invented in Ohio? If it had been invented anywhere else, it would be the 'teethbrush' ...

    Yea, I toss it all in... toothbrushes, shaver attachments, and anal douche. It's really hot water, isn't it?


    P.S. Did anyone notice the Oxford comma tucked so neatly in there?

    Every month??? I haven't even gotten mine broken in by then.

    Actually I've been buying disposable electric brushes. They last about 4-6 months, and when the battery dies, you throw it away, cause the bristles need replacement by then anyway. No clumsy, heavy handle like rechargeable toothbrushes, and no bathroom counter space sacrificed to unsightly charging stands and cord clutter. Light & easy to pack when I travel, too.

    If this is a question about hygiene/germs, you can buy toothbrush sanitizers. I've seen two kinds.. UV light and steam. But I think that's kinda going overboard. It might be cheaper to just splash a little Listerine on your toothbrush before or after each use.

    No. I have a sonicare and one of those uv boxes to sterilize the brush heads and I also replace the heads regularly.

    dentists say that as soon as bristles look fuzzy at the tip, it's time for a new brush.

    old ones are useful, i clean my trimmer, bike chains,
    underwear...

    I boil mine for 37 minutes then soak it in a 50 year old bottle of scotch for 3 weeks. After that, I have it blessed under the full moon by a blind octogenerian virgin wiccan priestess and store it in pressurized ozone filled container until I'm ready to use it.

    I have washed my toothbrush in the dishwasher as well as my baseball hats. Not that I wear them very often, they wreck my hair, but I do like them clean. Oh yeah and don't forget kitchen sponges too. And yes I have thrown in a pair of white running shoes one time.
