Your toothbrush is probably dirtier than you realize — this can help clean it
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, science
Not to freak you out or anything, but your toothbrush is really, really dirty. According to a study at the University of Manchester in England, there are over 10 million bacteria on your toothbrush at any given moment. Um, ew. Sure, the thought of sticking a dirty toothbrush in your mouth is unsettling, but what’s the alternative? Buying a new toothbrush every time you need to brush? Too expensive, not to mention horrible for the environment. Not brushing your teeth altogether? Too disgusting.  Luckily, TAO Clean’s Sonic Toothbrush & Cleaning Station is here to help. First, there’s the toothbrush. With 40,000 strokes per minute, Tao Clean’s toothbrush is great at removing food particles from your teeth and keeping your pearly whites looking good. Once you’re done brushing, stick your toothbrush in the cleaning station. This quirky contraption claims to remove 99.9 percent of germs and keep your brush dry so that it won’t grow any other weird bacteria between the bristles.  Normally, this system costs $129, but for the next few days, it can be yours for $70 in either black or white.  Image: Tao Clean TAO Clean's Sonic Toothbrush & Cleaning Station — $69.99 See Details read more
