Best Toothbrush Holder

I've never thought much about a toothbrush holder. When I lived in the states the toothbrush usually lived inside a medicine cabinet. I was not impressed with the medicine cabinets for sale in Costa Rica and didn't think we needed to have a custom one built. Instead, we chose to hang a huge mirror on the wall above the bathroom sinks.

The first few years in our new house, the toothbrush lived inside a plastic travel case inside of a larger plastic box. After a while I got tired of cleaning out the plastic containers. There wasn't enough air circulation allowing mold to grow. 

I looked on the internet for a solution. Most of the holders had parts that looked impossible to keep clean. I wanted something simple, nothing high-tech that required a battery or electricity. It needed to be easy to keep clean, protected from bugs and critter poop and good air flow. I didn't find anything on the internet so I came up with a solution.

My toothbrush now lives inside a large jar with a mesh sink drain strainer on top. I have been using this for many years and it is perfect for the tropical climate. If you need an easy to clean solution and have the counter space give this a try.


Sally, such an easy and great solution to a toothbrush holder. I have from time to time washed them in a dishwasher. Supposedly, I am to replace them frequently so whenever they appear worn and tired, I use a new one. In lieu of a dishwasher, simple soap and water works as well. How is your garden growing these days? Be well and enjoy Mother Nature this weekend. oxox

Thank you MA! The garden is doing great. The rainy season is under way and some issues with bacterial infections are happening. My next blog post will be an update on the garden with lots of photos.
