    Do you brush your teeth in the shower and keep your toothbrush in there?

    My roommate does it.  And it baffles me!  All that soap scum and runoff onto your toothbrush.  It gives me the heebie jeebies!

    Agree with you... do they also keep their toothpaste in the shower too, or do they use shampoo instead??  All seems a little strange to me...

      That doesn't sound too bad.  At least it's not a shower!

    I brush my teeth in the shower when I am feeling lazy, but always make sure to put it back where it goes. I agree about the soap scummies.

      Putting it back would be fine!  It weirds me out to see it in there.

    No, I'm with you - it is unsanitary to have it in the shower. I suppose your roommate never cleans it either like with peroxide? Yeah, that is a major ick!

      I'd say "major ick - ick, ick, ick" too.   lol  Soap scum (etc.) aside, are these people spitting on their own feet - or what?  And - do they brush their teeth under the shower spray, or turn it off and use the main faucet - or (again) what?

      I don't really know the logistics.  They must spit on their feet?  And I highly doubt she sanitizes her toothbrush.  It sits in there for days sometimes.

    My old roommate used to do this! It always grossed me out so bad.

    Ewwwww gross.  I know sometimes my husband takes it in there and uses it but I make sure he cleaned the shower since toothpaste makes me sick.  But leave it in there with all the soap and pink mold in there gross.

      Yup.  All that soap and mold is on her toothbrush.  So gross.

    Heck yes, although we have a holder mounted up high where no shower stuff can reach it. Me and my hubby brush in the shower due to early schedules.

      A holder would be acceptable!  I could deal with that.
