We keep our toothbrushes in the medicine cabinet in the bathroom. We have to do this because our dog likes to eat our toothbrushes and tooth paste. It all started when I told him his breath stank, and later that day I found the toothpaste gone, and the toothbrushes eatin. So that is were we keep ours. I never thought about putting them in the refrigerator.

My toothbrush sits in a toothbrush holder on my bathroom sink. I do worry about germs in the air, but my toilet is not directly next to my sink. And anyway, I usually try to put the lid down before I flush it. I'm not really sure if keeping your toothbrush on the refrigerator helps with germs or not. It really is convient to leave it in the bathroom for us.

The problem as I see it is that some toothpaste tends to remain right at the base of the bristles and does not get washed off, so I keep mine in a glass of water so that any leftover toothpaste gets dissolved in the water.

Hey dong1970, I don't have any idea as to keeping the brush in a cold place will actually kill the germs, however we keep our brush and toothpaste in a small tumbler which hangs over the washbasin in our restroom.

Hehehhe!!!! This is the 1st time I hear someone keeping their toothbrush in the fridge. I keep mine in a plastic container which has a rubber suction thing which sticks to the wall together with the toothpaste.

Well, I keep my toothbrush inside the medicine cabinet. I have a toothbrush holder there. They say that it's not advisable to leave it in the comfort room, because germs from the, "you know" could reach the toothbrush. Good evening dong.

I think the best place to keep tooth brushes would be near the sink where you brush your teeth. Not the sink where you wash dishes(lol) but near the sink in the bathroom where you usually brush. You can keep them in a toothbrush holder or in a tumbler inside a cabinet if any which is conveniently within reach when you need to brush your teeth. I keep a toothbrush in the bathroom in my house and one in the bathroom in my office. I also always havew a toothbrush in my bag so I could brush my teeth even when away from home or the office.

This is the first time I hear people keeping toothbrush in the refrigerator. I find it so unique! Anyway, our toothbrush are neatly placed in a closed toothbrush holder and it is placed near the sink of our bathroom That way it could be very accessible for us.

Well tht is a new idea I had not thought of. But don't think people would like to open the refrigerator and see your toothbrush laying there. I keep mine in the medicine cabinet, with the door closed. It is proven that every time you flush the toliet, germs are spread in an area 4 feet. So if it is sitting on the sink it would get germs on it. So being in the cabinet the door is closed to the germs.

I keep my toothbrush in a small tumbler in the wash/bath room. I clean my teeth in the wash room not in the kitchen so i never thought to keep it in a refrigerator.
