Toothbrush holders are essential items that help keep your bathroom organized and your oral hygiene on point. Whether you’re looking for a simple countertop model or a wall-mounted toothbrush holder that keeps bathroom surfaces clear, toothbrush holders come in a range of sizes, materials, and styles that will suit your needs and bathroom décor. The simplest models will keep your toothbrush upright when stored, allowing it to dry out between uses to keep bacteria at bay, and prevent toothbrushes in a shared bathroom from transferring germs. Some toothbrush holders incorporate built-in UV light for sanitizing, although the American Dental Association points out that there is scant data on toothbrush sanitation and no evidence that the bacteria found on toothbrushes leads to adverse health effects.

Best Overall: HBlife Toothbrush Holder

HBlife Toothbrush Holder

It might not look like much, but this highly-rated toothbrush holder is made of a simple food-grade stainless steel option that’s easy to keep clean and won’t rust or fade over time, but still looks pretty enough atop the bathroom vanity.

According to many reviewers, it’s also the “perfect size,” since it is slim enough to fit up and out of the way in some larger medicine cabinets, but it separately accommodates four toothbrushes and an entire full-sized tube of toothpaste. And the icing on the cake: Four non-slip rubber pads ensure the toothbrush holder stays firmly planted on whatever surface you put it on. 

Best for Families: Joseph Joseph EasyStore Toothbrush Holder

Joseph Joseph EasyStore Toothbrush Holder

This slim, attractive toothbrush caddy has six built-in storage compartments to accommodate enough brushes and toothpaste tubes for the average-sized family—or even a suite of roommates. Each slot is large enough to fit any type of toothbrush—from standard manual brushes to chunkier electronic ones. 

The larger two side compartments make for the perfect place to store toothpaste and other dental accessories, including floss. Perhaps the most admirable quality about this toothbrush holder, though, is how easy it is to clean. Though it’s ventilated for quick-drying to extend the time between deeper cleans, the entire thing dismantles easily, so you can really get in there and sanitize.

Best for Kids: Eslite Toothbrush and Toothpaste Holder

Eslite Toothbrush and Toothpaste Holder

The surest way to get kids in a consistent routine is to have everything front-and-center and exactly where they need it, when they need it. This toothbrush and toothpaste holder does that, and does so in a colorful and fun way that kids will like using. If there’s any downside, it’s that this bathroom caddy is a little larger than some of the others. Still, if you have the space, it’s a worthy choice, because it comes with everything you need, and keeps it all organized

The tray holds five toothbrushes (enough for an entire family!), plus has two larger compartments for toothpaste, floss, or other bathroom accessories. It also comes with three colorful drinking cups for kids to rinse their mouth out after brushing. 

Best for Small Spaces: Airmoon Mini Ceramics Toothbrush Holder

Airmoon Mini Ceramics Toothbrush Holder

When space is at a premium, you simply don’t have room for extra accessories in the bathroom—and, unfortunately, that often includes a toothbrush holder. But it’s no secret that surfaces in the bathroom aren’t exactly the cleanest surfaces in your house. Instead of perching your brush on the vanity where it’s susceptible to overspray from the toilet (yuck!) or cramming it in the medicine cabinet, grab one of these whimsical toothbrush holders. Each little pedestal only accommodates one brush, but it comes in a set of two, which makes it a great option for a couple with limited space. Plus, most of the real estate is vertical, so although your toothbrush is better protected from germs, you won’t sacrifice much room on the counter. 

If you’re worried your toothbrush won’t stay put, don’t be. Buyers say the holder is stylish, sturdy, quality made and functions very well.

Best Minimalist: Frost Marble Toothbrush Holder

Frost Toothbrush Holder

When it comes to something like a toothbrush holder, some people simply don’t need much. In fact, you may think: The simpler, the better. If this sounds like you, this is the best toothbrush holder for your bathroom—it's simple, design-forward, and easy to clean.

This pick is made of a sophisticated 100 percent natural marble—a soft and attractive stone that looks good on just about any countertop. Even the most extreme minimalists should know: There are no separate compartments—all toothbrushes sit on one single cup—so it’s not a great choice for roommates or anyone who frequently has guests who share the same bathroom.

Best Sanitizing: SARMOCARE Toothbrush Sanitizer

SARMOCARE Toothbrush Sanitizer

If you’re concerned about germs and bathroom bacteria building up on your toothbrush, a toothbrush holder complete with a built-in sanitizer is a worthy investment. The holder also has a built-in spot for toothpaste, so you can keep everything in one easy-to-access location in your bathroom.

This wall-mounted toothbrush holder firmly holds up to five toothbrushes in place. It has a built-in UV, or ultraviolet, light that helps to manage germs and increases your toothbrush's overall cleanliness. For even more protection, a built-in fan accelerates air flow to help minimize the spread of bacteria. When the light goes out, simply recharge the unit via a USB cable, and then get back to a cleaner routine.

Best Wall-Mounted: Tooletries The Harvey Silicone Toothbrush and Razor Holder

Tooletries The Harvey Silicone Toothbrush and Razor Holder

Wall-mounted storage is typically recommended for anyone with space concerns, since they get all of your dental accessories up and out of the way, leaving that valuable countertop space for other items like soap. They're also the best toothbrush holder for anyone who prefers to streamline their routine by brushing their teeth in the shower. 

This wall-mounted holder fits both bills. Because it’s silicone, it’s waterproof and perfectly suitable for the shower—and it even has a dedicated spot for your razor. That said, it adheres to a wide variety of shiny surfaces without suction cups or adhesives, so you can put it on the tile above your sink, too. Even though it may get wet—especially if you opt to use it in the shower—the silicone is antibacterial and will remain relatively clean. It’s also built with custom drainage holders that allow water to pass through easily. This eliminates any gross buildup and resulting smells.

Best for Travel: GUM Antibacterial Toothbrush Covers

GUM Antibacterial Toothbrush Covers

A travel toothbrush holder is a must-have for obvious reasons—nobody wants their toothbrush rubbing up against their shampoo and sunscreen. But you don’t need anything fancy to get the job done. The most important thing to look for in a travel toothbrush is whether or not the container has any airflow. Ventilation keeps bacteria (and smells that result from this sort of buildup) at bay. 

This set couldn’t be more affordable or well-suited for the job. The cover easily snaps into place (and stays put), and it cover has ample ventilation and an antibacterial coating to keep your toothbrush cleaner in your toiletry bag.

Best With a Cover: OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Toothbrush Organizer

OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Toothbrush Organize

Covers aren’t just great for travel. A countertop toothbrush holder with a cover is a great solution for busy bathrooms—like, say, a bathroom on the main floor that also functions as a powder room for guests. When not in use, the lid closes to keep your family’s toothbrushes out of the way and cleaner. Don’t worry about stagnant air, though—this toothbrush holder has both top and bottom ventilators to keep air circulating throughout.

This one, which reviewers rave is attractive, functional, and easy to clean, accommodates four toothbrushes (even larger ones) and a full-size tube of toothpaste in separate compartments that come out of the container for easy cleaning.

What to Look for When Buying a Toothbrush Holder

Easy to Clean

A toothbrush holder is designed to keep your toothbrush upright, allowing it to dry quickly between uses to cut down on bacteria. Look for materials that are easy to clean and won’t rust, such as porcelain, bamboo, or stainless steel. Be sure to add cleaning your toothbrush holder to your weekly cleaning rotation to keep bacteria and mold at bay, and store it as far away from the toilet as possible, which can spread fecal aerosol particles that you don’t want anywhere near your mouth. 

Storage Capacity

Toothbrushes should be stored upright and allowed to dry in the open air. Make sure that the toothbrush holder you are considering has enough space between compartments so that toothbrushes in a shared holder do not touch. This will prevent the transfer of germs and bacteria and ensure that toothbrushes adequately dry out between uses. 


Wall or Countertop Model

Whether or not you choose a wall mounted or counter top model has to do with preference, ergonomics, and the layout and size of your bathroom. If you’ve got kids, be sure to place a toothbrush holder in a non-breakable material where they can easily reach it and use it. A wall-mounted model keeps the countertop clear, and allows air to circulate, which will help keep the brush dry and mold-free. 

FAQ
  • How do you clean a toothbrush holder?

    While it’s important to keep your toothbrushes clean and dry, it’s equally as important to regularly clean your toothbrush holder, which will inevitably pick up toothpaste residue, dust, germs, and even aerosol particles from your toilet. Be sure to include your toothbrush holder in your weekly cleaning rotation. Once it’s clean, you can wipe down the surface with white vinegar diluted in water that will help prevent mold without using the harsh bleach-based solutions required to remove stubborn mold growth. 

  • How do you use a toothbrush holder?

    A toothbrush holder is a simple piece of equipment with an intuitive feel, but there are a few things to keep in mind to get the most out of yours. First, make sure that you stand your toothbrushes upright so that they are exposed to the open air and can dry quickly and evenly. Next, be sure to store multiple toothbrushes in a shared bathroom in dedicated compartments so that they don’t touch one another and allow for the transfer of bacteria. Finally, don’t use your toothbrush holder to store other bathroom items that could spread germs.

  • How do you prevent a toothbrush holder from growing mold?

    The best way to control mold growth in your home is to prevent it. Mold thrives in wet, damp environments without proper ventilation, so be sure to open your bathroom windows or use your bathroom exhaust fan to remove excess moisture. Choose toothbrush holders designed to allow the brushes adequate ventilation to prevent mold build-up. Keep your toothbrush clean before you store it by rinsing well with running water after use to remove paste residue that can drip onto or into the holder. Wipe up excess spills with a microfiber cloth.
