    Not a chance I would use it! I’ve done it by accident a few times. Waking up way to early and not paying attention. I would use my finger over his toothbrush though. It’s gross. I gagged everytime I realized I used his toothbrush! My husband is really great about his oral care too. Super clean teeth all day! Still yuck lol

    @prettyinpink11:  I know! It’s so weird too… he’s a germophobe with EVERYTHING ELSE in his life… but he can’t remember whose toothbrush is whose?! hahaha

    I regularly use my So’s toothbrush when we are travelling, and I forget mine.  Hey, you french kiss, you share germs.

    My SO once suggested I share his Best Friend’s toothbrush, because my SO didn’t bring his,  but that was a NO.

    we have toothbrushes by the sink and one in the shower. We use whatever one we grab. There is no his or mine when it comes to toothbrushes. I do replace them quite often.

    There’s so much bacteria in the human mouth… no way. I would if I absolutely had to, but I would be pouring boiling water all over that sucker before and after.

    no. that’s yucky.

    i know we kiss and share eating utensils and such, but it’s not the same. i’m such a germophobe. no way am i going to put something in my mouth that has weeks/months worth of germs on it.

    my husband would have no problem using mine if i let him (which i never do). the only time i did was before we were married and he was visiting me at my parents’ house and he forgot his toothbrush. he used mine (after i had brushed) that morning and bought me a new one later that day.

    Not now, not ever. I’d rather not brush my teeth than use anyone else’s toothbrush…INCLUDING DH. Mainly because I have serious gag issues when it comes to plaque and stuff

    I have when I’ve forgotten mine. I’d rather use his than go without brushing. I figure, we swap spit and other bodily fluids, what’s the big deal?  Not something I’d do on a regular basis, but if I had to I would.

    *shrug* I’ve had worse in my mouth (tee hee).

    I think it’s more gross to go around w/o brushing.

    Only if that was the absolutely only option. Like I was about to do something that depended on my teeth being clean and I didnt have time to go to the store to get a new one.


    I did accidentally use my moms once. That was awkward.

    We’ve used the other’s tooth brush occasionally and we don’t think it’s a big deal – we’ve been inside each others mouth anyway.
