I posted a message suggesting you dip your toothbrush into a cup of boiling water for 5 minutes once a week to prevent strep germ from growing on it. Most people never realize that germs accumulate on toothbrushes and cause serious health problems. Also, don't keep using the same cup without washing each time. If this message doesn't get through to you, blame the people who review these posts, this is the second post I have sent. Can't see why they would censor such a helpful suggestion.
