Buy a Phillips sonic toothbrush, and use the ultraviolet head cleaner regularly. That eerie blue light has me convinced nothing nasty has survived!

Maybe we should bring back the old time, non flushing, function specific out-house.
In Europe, often the toilet is in a separate room avoiding the problem.

On the other hand, there are some who theorize that our obsession with disinfectants and sanitation have contributed to the evolution of superbugs and the tremendous increase in allergies.

Well, I just forwarded that interesting bit of information to my husband and kids. Maybe FINALLY the toilet seat will get put down on a regular basis.

Seeing the video, I'm glad we have the combination toothbrush/toothpaste/Dixie cup holder, with a lid. I'm still trying to find a supplier.

If you keep your tooth brush in the toilet area you may as well clean the bowl with it and then brush. I know it sounds bad but it's true. Yuck !
I get some warm water in a cup and Go out side.

If I had to brush my teeth in the tiny 17's bathroom, I'd have bruised elbows! I keep mine in the top half of a travel toothbrush holder stored in the overhead cabinet across from the bathroom.
