If you have been leaving your toothbrush out on the counter in your bathroom, then your toothbrush is full of a lot of debris you really do not want to put into your mouth.
There are better places to store your toothbrush that can give you a lot more protection.
The Danger With Leaving Your Toothbrush OutWhen your toothbrush is left out, anything that is flying around the air in your bathroom can literally fall right on top of your toothbrush. Think about what that means. Each time you use an aerosol hair product, flush the toilet, or spray potpourri, the particles then fall onto your toothbrush and are put into your mouth.
Better Places to Store Your ToothbrushInstead of storing your toothbrush on the counter, put it in the medicine cabinet. It should be kept open on the top so that it dries between times that you use it. A covered container could let mildew grow on your toothbrush, which is definitely not good to put into your mouth.
If you do not have a medicine cabinet, store your toothbrush on a shelf in your bedroom or on your nightstand. Anywhere other than the counter of your bathroom is apt to be a better storage option.
