Do you keep your toothbrush in the bathroom?

Your toothbrush is home to more than 100 million bacteria including E. coli and staphylococci (Staph) bacteria. According to researchers, fecal germs are on your toothbrushes too.

Where you store your toothbrush in your bathroom is important. In most bathrooms, the toilet is very close to the sink, where most people keep theirs. Every time you flush, bacteria are released into the air – and you don’t want that bacteria to get on your toothbrush.

Even with the toilet lid closed, particles from a flush can travel up to 25cm.

Are you keeping your toothbrush clean?
