Dear Naked Scientists:

First of all congratulations for your programme.

And now here comes my question:

I've received one of this forward emails that advice on how to keep our tooth-brush free of bacteria. We are encouraged to fill the glass where our tooth-brushes rest with hydrogen peroxide. (So just the handles would be immersed in the peroxide, not the "brush")

Would this really work? If so, how?

Thanks in advance,


What do you think?
