This is the simplest and most obvious DIY toothbrush holder you’ll ever see. Toss these in your bag for travel and keep some around for guests, too!
I was reorganizing my laundry cupboard the other day and I came across my basket of clothespins. This reminded me of this really clever DIY toothbrush holder trick that I came across a few years ago and have been wanting to share ever since. It just kept slipping my mind for some reason though! Well, this turned out to be great timing for me because I happened to be starting to pack for yet another soccer tournament. This is really such a great little tip for traveling, especially for those of us who have an appreciation for keeping things clean as much as possible! 🙂
The Simplest, Most Obvious DIY Toothbrush Holder Trick
So here’s how it works!
Take a clothespin and pin it to the “neck” area of your toothbrush, where the handle is the thinnest.
When you’re done using your toothbrush and you need to set it down, you have a nice little stand that keeps your toothbrush off the counter! This is great in hotel rooms where you don’t have a toothbrush holder with you. You definitely want to avoid putting your toothbrush down right on any counter top that you haven’t cleaned yourself. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you to unclip the clothespin when you’re actually using the toothbrush, right? 🙂
Of course, you can always use this trick at home as well, if you need an impromptu toothbrush holder for a guest, or for whatever reason that might come up! I love this because it’s so easy to pack a few clothespins in your toiletry bag, they don’t take up much space at all, but they can really ease your mind when you’re using a hotel washroom to get ready for the day.
It’s one of those little things that actually kind of makes a big difference!
Have you ever used this trick when you were traveling? What other clever uses for clothespins have you heard of?
Don’t forget to pin this trick so you can remember it when you need it!
