I have been using my current toothbrush for only about a month and it has already started developing deposits of solidified toothpaste on it(a significant amount). (It looks sort of like chewing gum stuck on it).
It is extremely difficult to remove manually due to the small spacings between the bristles. Only a very small amount can come out if you try to do manually (most of it stuck to the bottom of the tooth brush I believe). It also doesn't come out with running water.
Is there a way I can remove it? I think my toothbrush isn't cleaning as effectively due to this (not sure though).
