What do you use to hold your family's toothbrushes? Most cute little bathroom holders only hold four or maybe six. Do you have several of them?

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my awesome siggy!!!

The kids each have little animal holders that suction cup onto the mirror and its mouth opens to hold each toothbrush. Aylie has a lion, Layla has a pig and Rhett has a dog.

DH and I have one of those toothbrush holders that comes with the bathroom set.

Janessa made a ceramic vase type project which is where we put the toothbrushes.

I keep the lil kids toothbrushes in a bar of soap box in the bathroom cabinet and the big kids/adults toothbrushes in toothbrush holders in the cabinet. I don't keep them out anymore since I watched some news program where they showed how toilets spray even with the lid closed and contaminate stuff. yuck.

Due to the arrangement in the house, the Austin & Shayne tend to use the 1/2 bath all the time unless they are going to take a bath or shower, so their toothbrushes are in the cabinet in that bathroom, with the 4 of us that use the upstairs bathroom more consistently in a holder on the counter upstairs... well no, 3 of us keep ours in the holder - my oldest has germ phobias for some things, so his toothbrush in kept in a spot in the cabinet

Mine and dh's is in the medicine cabinet over the sink and I keep the kids' toothbrushes in a white cabinet that hangs a little higher up on the wall. They have suction cups on the bottom so they stand up on the shelf nicely. And we keep them behind close doors because of what UM said.

Wow, I had no idea about the toliet spraying, yuck! Ironically, we don't keep our toothbrushes in the bathroom. We have in the laundry room a changing table, huge sink and toothbrushes. My hubby drilled holes in the top of the counter (its wood) and each kid and us has a cup that drops into their own "holder". They keep their toothbrush and vitamens in their cup. We keep the 4 different kinds of toothpaste in a holder next to them. Works for us. And if we need another cup for another baby, hubby just brings out his drill and makes another hole. Very simple. We only have one bathroom, so we've had to be creative with space.

Our toothbrushes are too big for the conventional holders so the dcs are in the "family bath" cupboard and mine/dh rests on the toothbrush holder in our bathroom.

Ours are in a toothbrush holder in our bathroom... the kids currently have theirs housed in a cup in their bathroom. I keep forgetting to get a bathroom set with a toothbrush holder for them.
