A toothbrush to see through the hotel service
- Jul 19, 2018 -

Although the tourism sector and the hotel industry association continue to advocate the cancellation of disposable items, the “six small pieces” are still difficult to disappear in hotel rooms. After all, they are one of the services that hotels have always offered to their guests.

The hotel's disposable toothbrush is the most important one of the "small pieces" of disposable items in the room. It may seem inconspicuous, but it is indispensable for those who go out without washing utensils. A recent survey by the reporter found that many residents reported that the disposable toothbrush was inconvenient to use, the quality was low, and it was even easy to cause bleeding gums. What are the precautions when using the hotel disposable toothbrush? The reporter recently interviewed experienced business guests in the hotel to share their experiences in using the toothbrush.

Soft hair toothbrush is of good quality

Disposable toothbrushes have become a standard in star-rated restaurants. The quality of toothbrushes is actually related to the guest's in-store experience.

Mr. Chen, who travels to the hotel all the year round, told reporters that his most abhorrent experience with the hotel's toothbrush was the bleeding of the gums when brushing his teeth, which is directly related to the toothbrush. He said that occasionally he felt a sting when brushing his teeth. The reporter learned that the shape of the head of the toothbrush is not smooth, there is a sharp angle, or the toothbrush bristles have sharp angles, burrs, etc., which may cause damage to the oral soft tissue and the tooth surface.

In general, disposable toothbrushes provided by the hotel are classified into nylon hair-brushing, sharp-edged toothbrushes, special toothbrushes, and the like. According to the strength of the toothbrush, it can be divided into three types: soft hair, medium hair and hard hair. Among them, the soft toothbrush has a slightly higher cost and better quality. Mr. Chen reflected that in the four- and five-star business hotels he lived in, he provided hard-bristled toothbrushes. Use the brand new disposable toothbrush in your hotel. After unpacking, you may want to soak it in warm water for a few minutes, or rinse it with water for a good feeling. Before use, gently press the bristles to see if there is any tingling sensation. The bristles are too hard to use. Always wash thoroughly after each use of the toothbrush, and remove the moisture from the toothbrush as far as possible, place the brush head up in the mug, or place it in a well-ventilated place with daylight.

Check if it comes from regular manufacturers

It is understood that the disposable toothbrush supplied to the hotel should meet the requirements of hygiene, safety and physical properties. For hygiene, disposable toothbrushes must be packaged. Toothbrush bristles, handles, and brush heads should not be discolored. All parts of the toothbrush should be clean and free from dirt. In terms of safety, there are regulations on the shape of the head of the toothbrush and the shape of the tail of the handle to prevent unnecessary damage to the mouth, hands or other parts. The content of heavy metals such as mercury, arsenic and lead in toothbrushes is not allowed to exceed the standard, otherwise it will cause harm to the human body. In addition, the tip contour of the toothbrush bristles must be removed at an acute angle and should not have burrs. The toothbrush must be ground to prevent damage to the soft tissues and surfaces of the mouth.
