Bacteria Assassin Ninja Toothbrush Sanitizer

200_toothbrushsanitizerThe New Year holiday and that little bit of extra time off from work is a good time to get cleaned up, reorganized, and ready for a bright new year. I’ve been in the zone myself. After putting away all the Christmas decorations, I’m cleaning places that weren’t seen for the past month. The bathroom? Sure, you do regular cleanings, but how often do you think about the one thing that should be the cleanest of all? Yes, your toothbrush. The average toothbrush in the average bathroom contains about ten million germs! Granted, many of these are benign, but not all of them. I run toothbrushes through the dishwasher occasionally, but of course not every day. Toothbrushes also pick up germs from other brushes when families store them all together.
The Bacteria Assassin Ninja Toothbrush Sanitizer will eliminate the danger of putting more nasties in your mouth by shining ultraviolet light onto the brush. This kills 99.9% of bacteria, and it’s a handy place to store the brush itself. The brush head is kept away from floating germs, including those released into the air when you flush the toilet (eww). And besides that, it looks like a cute little ninja that you might keep around as a curio even if it weren’t useful.
The drawbacks I see are that it seems to only hold one toothbrush, and eventually you’d have to clean the gadget out, especially if you don’t rinse all the toothpaste from your brush properly. Of course you do, but I know some children who don’t. The Toothbrush Sanitizer is $36.99 from Think Geek.
