Where to store your toothbrush to save space and avoid germs: an ingenious life hack

A toothbrush not only clutters up space but also collects unwanted dirt on the bristles

Most of us leave our toothbrushes on the bathroom shelf without even thinking about how convenient and safe this method is. But if you think about it, this open storage is not the best approach.

First of all, such storage clutters up space and creates a sense of disorder. Secondly, the brush we use to clean our mouths every day gets various contaminants on it. And dust is not the biggest problem in this case. That's why OBOZ.UA asked for life hacks on how best to store toothbrushes to solve both of these problems in one fell swoop.

Designers and hygiene experts recommend attaching a special shelf for it to the inside of the door of any bathroom cabinet. It can be a cabinet above or below the sink. The main thing is to keep the brush upright and protected from external conditions. Toothpaste, an irrigator, dental floss, and other oral care products can be conveniently placed nearby.

This will not only eliminate the visual clutter in your bathroom but also keep all your hygiene tools in one place. An additional advantage is that you don't take up precious cabinet space. Instead, you use the vertical space near the door, which is often useless.

You don't have to punch holes in the cabinet doors to accommodate this organizer. It can be glued or placed on hooks that are mechanically attached to the door.

If you're still not convinced that you should try this life hack, here's the final argument that can make all the difference. In modern housing, bathrooms are usually combined. This means that the toothbrush is located near the toilet. Every time you flush the toilet, microdroplets teeming with bacteria are released into the air. Some of them end up on the bristles of the brush. According to researchers, this leads to the accumulation of up to 100 million microbes. It is simply impossible to remove this amount by simply rinsing. Thus, is easier to deal with this thanks to the closed storage of toothbrushes.
