If you’ve been traveling a lot, always staying in the hotel rooms, you’ll need to take extra care of your tooth brush. As you simply place on the side of the water basin will allow germs or bacteria to stick on it. So while you use it to brush your teeth again, you’re almost like swallowing those germs and bacterias. Especially during the period of wide spread of any airborne diseases such as H1N1 or SARS, you’ll need to make sure your toothbrush is hygienic enough, free from germs or bacterias.
There is no easy way to have the toothbrush to stay free from germs except you have a toothbrush case that comes equipped with a UV light sanitizer. Japan Trust technology has just released a new toothbrush case that is equipped with a UV light bulb which kills germs and bacteria while your toothbrush is kept inside with the lid close.
The toothbrush case needs battery or can be charged via the USB port of your computer. Or if you’re an iPhone 4 user and you happened to own the iPhone 4 power case with USB output, you should be able to power up the UV light-equipped toothbrush case using the iPhone 4 power pack. The UV toothbrush case needs to be powered up for its UV light for about 8 minutes to kill all the germs or bacteria sticking on your toothbrush, so you cab be sure brushing your teeth with a completely clean toothbrush without germs the next morning. The UV toothbrush case is priced around $24 USD. Currently, it’s been released for the Japanese market but no indication where else you can get it.
