Hi sheesh
      YES definitely. I took a class before I started my treatment. I was taught that you need to get a new toothbrush after you are found to be undetected. Myself, I bought a pack of toothbrushes, and used a new one once a week. Also you must toss out your nail clippers, any type of implements that you use if they are steel, you can boil them for at least 15 minutes and then soak them in bleach and water. Its best advice to replace anything that you would have contact with any sort of blood that you have used in the past. Best of luck on your treatment... Blessings sunrise
