would you be gagging?
i so carelessly grabbed and used my fiance’s toothbrush instead of my own last night. when he opened the door to the bathroom, he commented on my mistake, and then proceeded to use mine. he didn’t seemed to mind, but i was horrified. i love him to death, but i’m going to have to get us both new toothbrushes.
do you share? am i crazy? 🙂

Ive used his before when we went away and I forgot mine. I didn’t notice until it was late at night so I couldnt go buy one. It is gross, but oh well.

We don’t share. My husband accidentally used my toothbrush one night. I called him on it, and then proceeded to soak it in mouthwash for a couple of minutes prior to using it to brush my own teeth.
I get that my husband and I share many things, but a toothbrush will never be one of them.

I catch Darling Husband using my toothbrush fairly often. Drives me a little crazy but doesn’t disgust me. Its more of a “whyyyy” because he’s too lazy to reach out of the shower and grab his off the sink.

I guess that it’s never really bothered me. We kiss, we share drinks, if it’s germs that’s the problem, I’ve already got them.

…We share a toothbrush. He’s got one of those cool sonic electric ones, and he kept saying that it was the best and got his teeth really clean. He said over and over that I should try it, but I told him I didn’t want to be Lily and Marshall from HIMYM. He finally convinced me, though, so now I just use his.

If you french kiss, or do other things, how is the toothbrush worse?

Doesn’t bother me, sometimes we have traveled with just one because one of us forgot ours. Not a big deal for us. We already swap plenty o germs.

My Fiance won’t even lick a popcicle that I have licked. He is weird. He will kiss me and share a pop or my night time water glass but not a popcicle. He also HATES it when I drink out of the Milk carton. So now I only do it when he is not around hahahaha.
I am pretty sure if I used his toothbrush he would throw it in the garbage immediately.

Yeah I don’t really see the disgusting factor. We dont’ share a toothbrush all the time, but in a pinch, its no problem. We have already shared all the rest of our bodily fluids, I don’t really see how sharing a toothbrush is gross

My hubs brushes his teeth hard so that the bristles fall down (that probably doesn’t make any sense to those who haven’t seen it.) But once accidentally I grabbed his- put it in my mouth and gagged. Just typing that brought back the memory of it and I gagged a little again!

It grosses my husband out, but sometimes I use his. I mean, it’s usually when it makes sense to – like we’re on a trip and I’ve already packed up my toiletries and want to brush my teeth one last time or something. But other times I do it just because I feel like it. 🙂

Hmm we dont share but I dont see the big deal personally, I dont like the idea particullarly but I figure a good soak in some mouth wash or hot salty water and your good to go

When I’m half asleep, our toothbrushes like strikingly similar, so yes, I’ve used his toothbrush on accident, and he’s used mine. It’s something we try not to do, but it happens, no biggie.

Oh yeah. We share all the time. We live in his parent’s basement (in the process of buying a house) and if one of us forgets our toothbrush downstairs, we just share! 🙂 P.s. I’d like to mention that I’m a Dental Assistant, and still swap tooth brushes with my Mr. 🙂
