Ahh, the bathroom warm, humid, and the likely home of the toothbrush.

The toothbrush has a magnetic attraction to bathroom germs, Dr.Tom Glass a professor of forensic sciences, pathology and dental medicine at Oklahoma State University in Tulsa, says "A toothbrush has everything a bug needs: it has food, it has water. And most people put it in a place where it's warm and damp, like the bathroom, so the bugs just go wild."

In three weeks you are likely to have as many as 1 Million bacteria growing on your tootbrush. In 3 months you are likely to have over 10 MILLION colonizing bacteria. Do you really think your going to get a fresh clean mouth with all that help?

There are 100's of varieties of bacteria, fungus, and yeasts found on toothbrushes kept in the bathroom. Some are recognized and some are unknown mutations.
