6 Eco-Friendly Ways to Reuse a Bamboo Toothbrush

  • 2 min read

 

 

We are so glad that you want to do the extra mile and upcycle your worn-out toothbrush before recycling it. By now your toothbrush has well served its primary purpose: cleaning your teeth. According to hygienists and dentists you should replace your toothbrush about every 2/3 months. So welcome to our multi-purpose guide to your bamboo toothbrush.

 

You can either keep the bristles or discard them. Just a quick reminder here's how to dispose of your toothbrush and we are off to amazing ways of reusing it.

 

Our first recommendation:

Start by disinfecting your old toothbrush, boiling it in hot water for a few minutes. Label or mark it as a “house tool” or any other name just to guarantee you don’t mix it up with the regular toothbrush.

 

#1 Dust your keyboard.

The toothbrush is the ideal tool to dust gently your keyboard and get rid of crumbs and other debris stuck in between keys. You may also use it in other electrical appliances like the hairdryer or the vacuum cleaner.

#2 Clean cooking accessories.

Garlic crusher and cheese graters are never easy to clean. You will definitely spare your soft sponge if you keep an old bamboo toothbrush by your sink. It will be handy for a more efficient cleaning and unclogging these items.

#3 Scrub shoes.

If you are a jogger or your kids play sports, you can easily get muddy and dirty sneakers. The bamboo toothbrush is perfect to scrub the small spaces in the treads. It can be family teamwork too.

#4 Remove clothes stains.

Do you imagine your toothbrush like a magic wand? Well, it can be if you use it to gently scrub with cleansing soap those persistent stains from your favourite clothes. Whisper abracadabra, just in case ;)

#5 Make a garden marker.

You must remove the bristles first. Afterwards simply write the name of the plant or the herbs in the handle and stick it into the soil. Your garden will definitely be livelier.

#6 Create arts & crafts

There are so many creative projects you can do with your kids or by yourself as a mindfulness exercise. You may build a photo frame, a stick house, a mandala, a pot base or a soap tray. Imagination has no limits.

Hi Francesa. In fact, when we cut the bamboo cane we are not killing the plant. The bamboo plant is still alive and in place of the cut cane will be born new canes. In fact bamboo behaves like a weed. It grows naturally and wildly and has its life protected at the base near the ground and below at its roots. We keep the bamboo alive :) and it’s like cutting a tree branch.

Hello Bam&Boo. I’d like to know if you plant other trees to replace the used ones?
