(NAPSI)—Shields aren’t just for superheroes and knights in armor. Now there’s one designed to protect your toothbrush from harmful bacteria.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) strongy advises against storing toothbrushes in enclosed spaces that are conducive to bacterial growth. This includes plastic toothbrush caps for travel, medicine cabinets at home and desk drawers at work.

The Toothbrush Shield is a disposable, breathable and fast-drying shield that acts like a surgical mask for your toothbrush. It was created to replace plastic snap-on caps and holders.

Laboratory tests show it to be an effective barrier against bacterial and viral transfer from both airborne and surface microbial contact. Made by IntelliDent, it’s available at major pharmacy chains nationwide.
