    'Gunk' inside sonicare toothbrush

    this stuff is really pissing me off, every month or so, i unscrew the brush part and the inside of it is COVERED in nasty brown/black mold and gunk. anybody found a good way to clean that stuff out or how to prevent it? would dunking the molded parts in bleach do the trick?

    i found this http://www.thesonicseal.com/links.htm , but it seems so simple i could find something around the house to do the same thing.

    I just take off the brush head and rinse after each use - that $#@! is disgusting.

    On every business trip use a hotel towel to clean that $#@! off. I thought it was so nasty I wouldn't use my own towels. Disgusting.

    well glad i'm not the only one who gets that $#@!. that link is pretty cool. $10 for 3 seems reasonable.

    Had this happen to me too, so I bought the deluxe version where just the heads come off, the entire upper part doesn't screw off. No problems since.

    just let it soak in bleach <filled the handle part up> and then put the brush part upright in a few inches of it dilluted. looks like its worked thus far... thinking maybe just unscrewing it every night might do the trick, let it air out.

    I use a q tip dunked in alcohol, works ok but not great.

    I'm gonna go buy those covers from the link bc that $#@! is gross.

    Had the same problem. I think it was a combo of rust & mouth/toothpaste funk. Then the thing just quit working on me. I've only had it a few months. I'm going to try a different brand/model cuz that thing is nasty.

    I might get a little gunk over a long period of time, but nothing nearly as bad as what you guys are describing. I make a point to spit half way through my brushing so that I don't foam out of the mouth and get the sonicare all dirty so maybe that's the difference?

    Mine gets green. I rinse it with soap & water periodically. Then get a strong paper towel and jam it inside and wring it out.

    if it has a screw off casing/brush, you should <i guess>. if you have a one piece, dont think you would have an issue.

    Had my Sonicare for quite a while now and have never bothered to look for this $#@!. This thread made me open it up last night and look and it was a little nasty. I rinsed it out and loosened some of the muck with my fingers. Anyway, I might buy a set of these Sonicondoms, though.
