Green Tip: Unplug Your Sonicare Toothbrush

I absolutely adore my Sonicare toothbrush.  I’m at the point where my teeth simply don’t feel clean when I don’t use it.  This is actually how I discovered this very simple green tip.

I loved my Sonicare so much that, when I began traveling every week for work, I needed to bring my it with me for every trip.  My only concern was how inconvenient it would be for me to charge it up all the time.  The Sonicare manual tells you to leave it in the charger every day.  I wasn’t sure how long the charged handle would hold up sitting in my suitcase all the time.

Guess what?  While using it at least four days out of the week, a single charge lasted me two months at a time.  Toward the last few weeks, there was a noticeable decrease in power, but all I needed to do to remedy that was charge the handle for a single day.

So for those of you who love your Sonicare as much as you love this planet, give it shot.  Unplug your charger from the wall and only charge your toothbrush when you need to.  Other than lowering your electricity bill and helping the environment, I bet you’ll hardly notice the difference.
