Weekly Tip

That's right, that is a picture of a toothbrush. This week's tip for pet owners is to keep a few extra toothbrushes around! 

I use toothbrushes for cleaning my fish tank (it cleans algae out of corners, off the grooved ends of the heater, out of hard to reach places, the filter, off of plants, and ornaments). It is a cheap and easy cleaning tool for fish tank use.

I also use toothbrushes for cleaning out my hamsters water bottle, cleaning cage bars on my hamsters and rabbits cage, and just for anything difficult to reach/ clean out.

Just make sure that it hasn't been used to brush teeth, and if you are going to use it for a fish tank, make sure that that brush is used only for that purpose to avoid contaminating your fish tank with anything.


  1. Good idea, especially for those free ones from the dentist that I don't like as much since they're so small.
    Love and hugs,

  2. Ahh...toothbrushes aren't just for teeth anymore! I find them handy for all kinds of things around the house. Good tip.

  3. Good tips! This isn't animal related (hehe unless your animals wear shoes...) but toothbrushes are great for getting salt stains off of Ugg-type boots during the winter.

    Okay, looking back at what I wrote, I'm embarrassed that I said "unless your animals wear shoes..." I'll be skipping that next time....Hahah!
