Do UV toothbrush sanitizers work? They are purchased to get rid of microorganisms – bacteria, mold, spores and viruses – from toothbrushes. No harmful chemical are involved. The UV sanitizer unit emits UV light that will kill most of the germs growing and floating around used toothbrushes.

I have never shopped for UV toothbrush sanitizers. That I am wondering if they work doesn’t necessarily mean I am skeptical about the products. I am more inclined to be convinced that any sanitizing item actually does work. I just want a way to verify if the items being marketed does what it is meant to do.

I obviously know if a dust-cleaning product works. Same goes for an item that cleans bathroom surfaces. As for wiping out microorganisms that are collected on a kitchen sponge, there’s no way to check if putting it in a microwave actually work.

After a toothbrush is used on dirty teeth, gums and tongue, a number of people don’t realize just rinsing it will not clean it strikingly.

What is also must know is the moisture forming into the air that will hover around the bathroom and land on things inside it after the sink is used or the toilet is flushed. [1]
