A Germworthy Note - Toothbrush Covers
Is your family inclined to keep toothbrushes out in the open rather than tucked away in a drawer or cupboard? If so, they are likely to be more exposed to germs carried on the air or to microscopic particles caused by nearby toilet flushing.

Anti-bacterial covers -little garages for toothbrush heads- are cheap insurance and especially useful for travel. Check out toothbrush sanitizers, too, a very easy-to-use product with antiseptic properties.
