Sharing your toothbrush with your worm-munching kid brother is gross, but keeping your tooth brush in the same container as his can be just as bad. Tooth brush containers can become heavily contaminated with bacteria and viruses. What's more, keeping your toothbrush on a sink or counter can leave it vulnerable to air borne illnesses.
Sharing a tooth brush container is a bad group dental plan so, if you want to avoid sharing diseases, you should think about getting your own container, especially a closed, private one that you can clean out periodically.
