Disposing of your bamboo toothbrush
Bambooth’s handle will biodegrade and return to the earth within 6 months if placed in domestic or commercial composting. Please remove the bristles first by either snapping off the head or using a pliers to pull the bristles out. The bristles can be recycled as plastics if placed in a larger recyclable container. Removing the bristles with a pliers will remove a tiny metal staple that is used to clamp the bristles to the handle.
Caring for your bamboo toothbrush
Bambooth is made from a natural material which will last longer when kept dry (most toothbrushes prefer this anyway :). We recommend you dry it after use and store it in a dry place. Over time the wood may become lighter and fade- this will not affect the quality of brushing. For best results, dentists recommend you replace your toothbrush every 2 – 3 months.
