    I voted “sure”. I’ve used DH’s toothbrush when I forgot mine. (His idea, I was going to go buy one, he was like “just use mine!”.) Though I strongly prefer to have my own toothbrush.

    I’d rather “fingerbrush” — put some toothpaste on my finger (after I wash my hands, of course) and brush my teeth with my finger.  Or even just swish some water around with toothpaste in my mouth and use it as makeshift mouthwash.  I wouldn’t be able to share a toothbrush.  Heck, I can’t even stand when people leave their toothbrushes out in a bathroom.  I’m always grossed out because water droplets from the toilet could land on the toothbrush when you flush.  Not sure if that’s even possible but in my mind it is lol.

    I voted that I dont have any teeth, but the truth is that I would share a toothbrush with my fiance if it was absolutely dire – but the thought of it totally grosses me out.

    We all kiss their mouths… it’s pretty equivalent to brushing our teeth with their toothbrushes. I’d put a bit of peroxide on the brush and rinse it regardless though, not because he grosses me out but because used toothbrushes do.

    We’ve shared in a pinch, I mean, what germs am I going to get from his toothbrush that I don’t already have from kissing him?

    We have shared before. To us it is no big deal, we already exchange spit. 😛

    I would do like BayStateBride and use my finger. There is just something about toothbrush sharing… bleck. I know it makes no sense since I kiss him but it just seems gross to me.

    I personally would rinse the brush for a bit in really hot water and use it the one time, and then I’d probably go pick up a new one. It’s not ideal but it doesn’t completely gross me out either.

    I think it’s gross, but I’d rather have my husband’s cooties than funky breath!

    Nope, I wouldnt be able to share tooth brushes.  If he wanted to take mine and use it, he could, I just wouldnt use it again.
