January is the perfect time to re-organize things around the home. I like to start my “spring cleaning” now so that once Spring arrives I can be outside. One of the first rooms I tackle is our main bathroom. Scrubbing and cleaning the tile is essential, but I also like to clean out our storage closet and medicine cabinet. I toss out old or expired medicines and update my beauty supplies. One thing in my bathroom that I am not crazy about is the plastic covers I use on each of our tooth brushes.
I try to replace the covers each time I change out our tooth brushes (every 2-3 months), but once those caps are used I can’t just toss them into the recycling bin. So they end up in our landfill. I also worry about germs and viruses gathering on our toothbrushes. Keeping them covered and in the medicine cabinet creates a nice dark, damp place for little bugs to breed. If you’re like me, you don’t have time for stomach bugs and viruses!
So, when Lisa Smith, Executive Vice President of IntelliDent Products contacted me for a review I was excited to try these out! Lucky for you Dear Readers, she was generous and sent extras to GIVEAWAY!
Here is what I love about the IntelliDent Toothbrush Shields:
These covers are breathable, dry quickly and perform like a surgical mask for your tooth brush! The plastic covers keep the toothbrushes damp and collect tooth paste teaming with bacteria. Yuck!
Each cover blocks against 99.9% of airborne and surface bacteria. (Did you know your toilet can contaminate your bathroom surfaces within a six foot radius in you bathroom?).
The antimicrobial preventive protection of these covers lasts up to 7 days, then you can toss into the trash. It takes up less room in the can and degrades much faster than plastic.
Covers are individually sealed to ensure a fresh product every time.
The covers are so easy to slide over a tooth brush my five year olds don’t need any help. (However, they are disappointed they can not select their favorite colors and decided to add a sticker to their covers). My family started using these covers over a month ago. Now that I know the benefits and can see the difference, I won’t be using those plastic covers any more!
IntelliDent products are made in the USA by a women owned company. They also make a Mouth Guard Shield. The covers are not available in stores, but are available online at Walmart.com, Drugstore.com, Walgreens.com .

This is such a good product I didn’t even know it existed!!
Way more sanitary and easy for traveling!
This idea is so simple and brilliant at the same tie! I was always avoiding the plastic covers, but these are just fantastic and I really want a few.
I like that it is compact which makes it a great travel purchase! Also the fact that it protects against bacteria is great for as I have a poor immune system.
I need these! I always worry about the bacteria in the air in the bathroom. These are great!
That is a better way to keep the tootbrush. How many covers are inside the pack?
An interesting and seemingly better way.
I have never heard of the breathable toothbrush covers. I like the surgical mask analogy. I like to keep our bathroom and hygiene items surgically clean.
These are crazy cool! I have never heard of them before. I will have to give them a try!
What a better way to keep our toothbrushes protected. I’d like to give them a try.
this is such a great idea. We fortunately have out toilet in a separate room from the sinks but still, I always wonder about what’s flyng in the air – eeehh! this would help 😉
I didn’t know there were covers like these! I’m a bit of a germophobe so I’m definitely going to invest in these!
What a great product! I feel like I’m guilty of not taking care of my toothbrush. These seem like they would definitely keep away the bacteria I normally don’t pay attention to. Great post!
I can see myself using these for travelling but I’m not sure I would use them in the house.
All of our tooth brushes are placed in a toothbrush holder and then in a drawer to keep them as clean as we can. We also swap them out every couple of months too.
My kids are kinda goofy and they would switch the covers just to see if we noticed (eww!!)
