In the blink of an eye, it’s the time when our thoughts drift away from work, school, or whatever it is you’ve been doing for the first half of the year. One of the most important things we’ll have to do before travelling is to pack our luggage. No matter the length of the trip – be it a weekend getaway at Penang or a 3-week backpacking trip throughout New Zealand – one essential item that is often overlooked is our trusty toothbrush and how to keep it clean when travelling.
How to pack toothbrush properly?
Usually, most of us would just put our toothbrush and other toiletries into a plastic or toiletries bag without giving it much thought. Without proper storage, our toothbrush would be exposed to dust, dirt, bacteria and other foreign particles which can cause oral disease. The toothbrush is a very personal item that we put into our mouths daily and it’s very important to keep it clean and germ-free at all times.

Brushing teeth in public toilet, Yay or Nay?
Have you ever experienced situation that night-driving at North-South highway or stay overnight in the airport or during flights, we might have to brush our teeth in a public toilet that hundreds of people use everyday. I once had a flight transit in KLIA and was about to brush my teeth in the airport toilet. However, I was very reluctant to put my toothbrush on the countertop where there’s water from other sinks splashing over to mine. Luckily I brought my Flipper, the suction cup attach well onto the mirror, it kept my toothbrush from being exposed to germs.
