I am a self-proclaimed germophobe. It’s a running joke between Bridgette’s husband and myself that I would bathe my children in hand sanitizer if I could. One of the things I am super obsessed with keeping clean is the kids’ toothbrushes. They are constantly getting replaced because I toss them after an illness, I find them on the floor, or my son uses his to clean his Hot Wheels. While I do store them in a toothbrush holder, I never really thought about the air they were exposed to until I was asked to review the Toothbrush Hygiene Helper.
The Toothbrush Hygiene Helper was invented by a mom who was concerned about all the bacteria and germs floating around a bathroom that can land on exposed toothbrushes. From the creator Fannie LeFlore: “Toothbrush Hygiene Helper is a perfect way to get some peace of mind knowing that you’re limiting exposure to germs and even flu viruses such as H1N1. I created TBH when I noticed just how exposed toothbrushes are in the bathroom when they’re stored in cups and other open containers. I had already heard about germs and bacteria from toilet-flushing and dirty hands, but there’s also dust, hair spray and cleaning products and other environmental elements in a bathroom that can land on toothbrushes that we put in our mouth. “
Can I get an “Ew?” The Toothbrush Hygiene Helper is very user friendly and comes in a variety of colors. It’s not an eyesore on the bathroom counter while doing its job of keeping the toothbrushes sanitary. You can also choose to mount it to the wall. The Toothbrush Hygiene Helper is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning when needed, and has strategically-placed vents to keep toothbrushes dry and fresh.
I would definetely recommend the TBH to a family member or friend. It’s inexpensive and practical, and would be a great and practical gift for anyone on your list, especially for those with children! I am thankful that my kids’ toothbrushes are now better protected from all the “yuck” floating around the bathroom! Thanks, TBH!
