Where Do You Stand? Sharing a Toothbrush With Your Significant Other

A toothbrush is a very personal item, and the thought of sharing mine with someone else seems pretty disgusting. But when you think about it, you're swapping the same germs and saliva when making out with someone, so really, is there a difference? What do you think? Would you share a toothbrush with your significant other?

I have shared toothbrushes with lovers several times when the need arose. Here's the trick: Sterilize the bristles by soaking them in rubbing alcohol for a minute or so, then rinse well. Then send them to Walgreen's in the morning!

To everyone who said it was gross because of the food particles that get on the toothbrush, do you not realize that the food from YOUR mouth gets on the toothbrush too? It's not like that only happens if someone else uses it.

NEVER!!!! I have let him use a washcloth with a toothpaste and baking soda mix. I have used Mouthwash and then walked to the corner store to get one but I never have and never will share my toothbrush. You are sharing bacteria and viruses. All the colds that he has had since he started usingthat brush are stored in there. I don't see what the "emergency" would be to have me use his brush and that was before we lived together

You know, I love my husband (and his kisses) to death, but I would not share my toothbrush with him. That's just gross. He knows this. If it was an absolute emergency, maybe, but otherwise I wouldn't.

EWWW no way! sharing/exchanging toothbrushes and underwear are a no-no and off limits in my book!No matter who it is, it's unhygenic!

I would let him use mine if he soaked it in Listerine after. It's not the germs, it's any nasty food bits that might get wedged in the bristles. I know he'd never let me use his though!

yeah... I don't think I could do that... I am good on sharing a lot of things but that and suckers or popsicles... where you just slobber all over your food... no.

I think there's a difference between making out and sharing toothbrushes. Sharing toothbrushes is NOT okay with me.

Helllll NOOO - I am sorry but everyone's mouth is a sesspool no matter how clean you are. I just think it is gross to share something that is all up in the jaw cleaning. I carry my own brush and so should my bf. Too many germs and things and just unhygienic.

Nooo way. I'm a tooth fanatic - my mom is a dental hygienist, so it's been ingrained in me practically since birth. I always carry a toothbrush in my purse, and usually toothpaste as well. No such thing as being too prepared!
