  • I have a toothbrush holder and my bathroom stays clean. I replace their toothbrushes every 2 months. They say to do it every 3, but I do it every 2 instead. I usually buy them in bulk anyway. If one looks raggedy I pull it out of my handy bulk container and replace it.

  • My toilet area is separate from the sink area its a wall separating the two so im not really concerned with germs from toilet contaminating anything. But I keep caps on the tooth brush ..I also boil our tooth brushes or just pour boiling water over them once a week. We change tooth brushes every 6-8 weeks

  • We keep ours with the bristles up. Also you can take and dunk them into peroxide to keep them clean and germ free.

  • Bristles up in a toothbrush holder. I run them through the dishwasher once per week. My family is rarely sick.

  • its a boywe use the covers. each child gets a favorite color and animal. weekly i take the toothbrushes out their covers and run the cover through the dishwasher. if no dishwasher than scrub them very well and boil them for about three-four minutes. drain and let cool. no icky germies!
