Give your toothbrush a thorough rinse with tap water to remove debris. Some use ultraviolet light to kill microorganisms. There are a few categories of electric toothbrushes. Compare that with the thousands -- in some cases tens of thousands -- of strokes per minute a power one makes. Are power brushes worth the extra cash? Now that parents have been alerted to the scale of this epidemic, the cum-hungry little wankers will just have to learn to use their fingers like we did.
