Every time I changed the head on my electric toothbrush, I spent hours devising the perfect method of cleaning the (absurdly nasty!) gunk from the inside. The dilemma I faced was finding a cleaner that was safe to use on an item I put in my mouth


Then it finally dawned on me: vinegar!


First, I let it dry out overnight with the head off.  Once dry, I knocked as much funk out as I could, then let it soak in a glass of vinegar for about 15 minutes. Next, I used one of my “for cleaning only” manual toothbrushes, and cleaned most I the gunk out.


However, there was still some gunk I couldn’t quite reach just inside the neck. So I thought back to 2nd grade science… I put the toothbrush back in the glass of vinegar, then added about a tsp of baking soda.


After marveling over the bubbles (hee hee!  it never gets old!), I was then able to loosen the remaining gunk, and -voila!- my toothbrush was good as new again.


What uses have YOU discovered for vinegar?
