Care & Disposal

KEEP YOUR BRUSH DRY

Bamboo is a natural material that keeps best when kept in a dry area. Enclosed toothbrush cups that collect water are not ideal. It’s best to keep your toothbrush in an open-air toothbrush holder or any other dry area.

CLEANING THE BRISTLES

You can wash and care for our bristles just like a conventional toothbrush.

YOUR HANDLE

Bamboo is natural woody material that will fade over time. The bamboo on the top portion of your toothbrush that goes in your mouth may begin to appear lighter and faded with use. This is normal! It will not affect your brushing experience.

REUSE OR COMPOST THE HANDLE

The bare toothbrush handle can be disposed of in a commercial composting bin and will safely return to the soil within 6 months. However, the handle is a perfectly good piece of high quality bamboo – feel free to reuse it in your garden or any other creative area.

DISPOSAL OF HUMBLE BRUSH

The different parts of the toothbrush can be disassembled for proper disposal. The bristles are not biodegradable but could be recyclable in your city. The issue with recycling bristles is that they are very small and lightweight: curbside recycling will not work. You may be able to work out a solution by contacting your local recycling facility. But otherwise, the bristles will have to be landfilled. Using pliers, it is easy to remove the bristles from the head. Doing so will also remove a small metal staple that is used to clamp the bristles to the handle. The handle can be reused or disposed of in a commercial composting bin.
