Do you know how much troublesome is try to make a toothbrush stay upright on a plane so that bristles don't touch the surface? I try to do that every morning and I still can't do that! So I usually keep my toothbrush in a cup, but it hardly fit into the bathroom cabinet, and it has to be cleaned very often. If you're accustomed to buy always the same toothbrush you can make this useful holder.

Step 1: the part list

You don't need too much tools, but maybe you've to steal in secret your girlfriend toothbrush, wait to trash your last one, or to open another brand new one, so to have two of them. Then of course you need a little package of Sugru. I've used white because is one of the last left ones from the eight coloured mini packs.
I tried this with two tooth brushes and razor. The tooth brushes hold fine when sugru isn't cured, but once it is cured, it doesn't hold and it is too hard to form around the toothbrush. They just fall off.
A concern you may have missed is that sugru may not be safe to have the mouth-end piece of your toothbrush touching. Anything that involves plastics and risks oral use should be food grade. Plastics are petroleum products which are often carcinogenic, so although your idea is neat, it may be toxic. Just my thoughts:)
pretty sure i read on the suguru page that it is food grade after it cures. <br> <br>so long as you dont have crud all over your fingers when you're molding it, it should be fine
thanks, it's better precise to not let the mouth-end piece in contact with the holder.
I have the same tooth brush as you :O
Great. On smooth surfaces the '<a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Easy-cable-clip-sucker-version/" rel="nofollow">Easy cable clip - sucker version</a>' might help you out as well (see Step 6 for the toothbrush and kitchen tools examples).
love this, makes me want to mould more stuff on cupboard doors. Love that you mount 2 brushes with one mini pack. oh, and great photo's too.
Thanks! You're right! Now that you make me think about that, it really could be useful to hold many type of tools in the kitchen too :-)
