The 10 Best Toothbrush Holders
This wiki has been updated 13 times since it was first published in January of 2020. When talking about proper hygiene and your oral health, the first thing to come to mind is keeping your pearly whites clean. No one wants to use a dirty toothbrush every day, and holders can be magnets for germs and bacteria floating in the air. That means you must take the time to evaluate each option, and choose the best one to ensure a fresh mouth after each and every use.

We removed the Wikor Dispenser because of durability concerns over the long term. In its place, we added the MetroDecor mDesign because of its relative simplicity and low cost. Unlike wireframe and wall-mounted models, the MetroDecor is especially easy to clean and comes in a variety of finishes. We still recommend the Sarmocare Sanitizer as the top choice for those most concerned with cleanliness, while the Oxo Good Grips also does a good job of keeping your oral hygiene tools out of the general bathroom atmosphere.

It took much more thought in making these toothbrush holder selections than you might imagine. The holder is an easy target for bacteria in the air, thanks to the flushing of your toilet. When you flush, tiny particles of water spray into the air, which is why it is always a good idea to put the lid down first. However, you do not always remember to do that, so we chose holders that meet the American Dental Association's recommendations for brush storage, as well as options that completely cover your dental hygiene items.
The OXO Good Grips is a fully-enclosed container for optimum protection from airborne particles. On the other end of the spectrum, the SimpleLife Storage is an open air holder that keeps brushes upright and not touching each other for sanitary and drying purposes. Even the most budget-friendly option, the ISusser Case, keeps your brush completely contained, ventilated, and easy to take with you anywhere. When you make your final decision, look beyond the price tag because your oral health must be handled with care.
