Where do you keep your toothbrush?

I've appreciated the thoughts on this. I am wondering if a medicine cabinet is feasible. What I'd love is something like what I saw in a PleasureWay wet bath (1st image). I know the showerhead holder and light are kind of in the way. I took a picture holding a small box in a 19' Escape (2nd image). Just to see if a small cabinet might fit. I am not sure it would work and it's been challenging finding something that would work for a small wet bath.

I carry a toiletry bag similar to this Amazon.com: Lewis N Clark Hanging Toiletry Case: Clothing that I got at IKEA. I hang it open on the inside of the door after I set up, then close it up and throw it on the bed while traveling.

I'm liking the idea of a medicine cabinet. Lots of plastic ones available that could be surface mounted.

Alice, I am with you on keeping my toiletries in a bag. We put up a toothbrush holder and a little basket, but if we are in a campground that has facilities we use them for showering etc. A bag is nice to have because I can grab my bag and a towel and have everything I need to make myself look reasonably presentable. I also keep a few quarters in m toiletry bag for the occasional campground that charges for showers.

We both use toiletry bags as well, but I had this little shelf made to keep other bathroom stuff handy. It's mounted with strong tape.

I have suction baskets with drain holes that are mounted on the driver's side wall under the sink. I keep waterproof items (toothpaste tubes, shampoo bottles, etc.) there and they mostly stay dry. I have a suction toothbrush holder for the kids. Works for us.

Believe it or not...there is some suggestion that keeping your toothbrush uncovered and close to your toilet is unhealthy. Every time you flush, you contaminate your brush with micro germs from in and around your toilet.

And, it doesn't help when your toothbrush falls on the floor in transit.

You are correct, if the lid is up. There is a You tube video that is scary.

Kids don't flush (at least when someone is nearby) without the lid down!

Actually lately (in the past 3 years) we keep all toothbrushes elsewhere.
