Are there special care instructions?
Great question. Since your WooBamboo toothbrush is not made of plastic, like other brushes, there are a few simple things to keep in mind. Any long-term wetness will definitely shorten the life of your brush, so please don’t let your toothbrush sit in water. When you’re done using it, shake it dry and place it upright in a holder or a cup (good advice for ANY toothbrush, actually!). Adding some coarse salt to the bottom of your toothbrush holder or cup will prevent any excess water from damaging your WooBamboo toothbrush handle.
Also, due to the nature of the brush, literally, you MAY witness the occasional bristle liberating itself from the handle. That’s because we don’t use glue. Only pressure secures the bristles into the brush. So if it happens, which is rare, don’t panic. Let it just serve as a reminder that you’re doing something good for the environment, and it’s not that big’a deal.
Lastly, like with ANY toothbrush: BRUSH LIGHTLY! There’s no reason to punish your gums OR your toothbrush by thinking harder is better. It’s not! Be gentle. Your gums, teeth, and toothbrush will thank you (in their own way).
