04 Nov The Steripod Toothbrush Protector
Did you know that a toothbrush is typically covered with around 10 million bacteria even in your own bathroom?! Fortunately, you can now protect yourself and the people you love against these nasties by treating them and yourself to the Steripod Toothbrush Protector.
Without the Toothbrush Protector
Exposed to airborne droplets contaminated with cold and flu viruses, your toothbrush may, if touching those of others, also pick up bacteria and germs responsible for cold sores, oral thrush and HPV (a virus affecting your skin and the moist membranes lining your mouth, throat and other parts of your body).
Contaminated Water Droplets
Bombarded with faecal matter via the aerosol fine spray of contaminated water every time your toilet is flushed, it could even be covered in pathogenic ‘monsters’ like staphylococcal and E.coli. Frightening thought, isn’t it?!
The Steripod Toothbrush Protector
Simply clipping onto your toothbrush’s head (manual or electric), the Steripod Toothbrush protector creates a protective pod that physically surrounds your brush’s head and effectively shields it – just like a guardian angel – from airborne nasties and cross contamination with other brushes.
The patented design of the Steripod Toothbrush Protector uses ‘active vapours’, a special laboratory-formulated Thymol (a substance used in many oral antiseptics and mouthwashes) compound to keep your toothbrush clean, free of contaminants and fresh-smelling for as long as three months.
The plastic casing containing the compound has tiny holes that allow the Thymol vapours to get out and protectively encircle your brush’s bristles. The active ingredients have no way of ever actually touching your brush’s bristles, so there is no risk of accidentally ingesting unwelcome chemicals.
Designed specifically to allow free circulation of air, this ingenious gadget also allows your toothbrush to dry naturally and subsequently deprives any nasties of their favourite breeding conditions (a moist atmosphere).

I haven’t used my Steripod Toothbrush Protector long enough to comment on its effectiveness in terms of preventing illness, but my toothbrush smells much fresher and even looks cleaner (although this could be my imagination knowing about the spray generated by flushing the toilet…). In any case, if you are looking for thoughtful, practical stocking fillers, the Steripod Toothbrush Protector is something you can (and should) treat every member of your family to this year. Highly recommended for peace of mind.
