I noticed that people use a toothbrush to clean a safety razor. I use it about twice a week after replacing my blade. How long will the toothbrush last? How do I know when to replace it?

I would imagine a toothbrush will last a long time.  I use the green gun cleaning toothbrushes, my razors will break down before this brush breaks down. Smile

Just use it until it doesn't clean anymore.

One way to tell is if it breaks like mine did the other day..lol. I only used it a few times to clean my razors and the head snapped clean off and I wasn't even applying much pressure. Other than that though it works very well. If the bristles are still effectively cleaning the razor then keep using, and if not then time to replace or find a different method.

Huh, thought I had answered this already, then realized the same question was posted at Badger & Blade first.  That answer still stands, you might want to limit posting the same question on two forums, or at least indicate that you are going to do so.

I find a toothbrush for a toddler works best. Small enough head to work in small places such as TTO's and s has enough stiffness in the bristles to clean like you want.

I've always used an ultrasonic electric toothbrush and a bit of toothpaste.

Been using the same head for a year or so now and the indicators are still like new.

Huh It is just a question......perhaps OP is just looking for another suggestion.

I use a tooth brush and anti-bacterial soap.  I "recycle" my old tooth brushes to "razor" scrubbers so I have an endless supply.

I use my wife's toothbrush and it seems to be lasting just fine on the razors and her teeth. Haha. Of course if that were true I would be deceased.

I just make sure the bristles aren't black and I don't use the brush to clean anything else. Really, I would be more worried about making sure you keep it separate from your daily toothbrush or somehow marking it so that you don't end up brushing your teeth with your razor cleaning brush. Don't ask me how I know?
