Don't Believe the Toothbrush and Toilet Hype

Sep 15, 2008
The saying has been around for plenty of years, "If you're tooth brush is in the same room as the toilet, every time the toilet flushes, droplets of bacteria are released onto the brush". Most people who have heard this saying start to get quite panicked and ideally they have a right to be, they believe that it is like brushing your teeth with a toilet cleaner.

But is this saying really true? We are now seeing a lot of the olden day houses, being converted into separate bathrooms and toilets. But if you are doing it for this reason then I would highly suggest against it. Bathroom remodelling is a major industry these days; it is way up there with fitted kitchens. But a bathroom is not the same as a kitchen, and you do not want to be spending thousands of pounds, which could be spent much more wisely. There are a few simple adjustments and implementations that you can perform on your bathroom to get it looking great and the way you want.

First and foremost have a close look at your bath tub? Does it really need changing or are you just being fussy? If it does ultimately need changing, then you can realistically pick up a new tub for around one hundred pounds.

Secondly and most importantly, if you have a two in one bathroom and it works, then don't replace it. Why waste money just because of a saying? If you are really worried about your toothbrush getting bacteria then you should place it in a cupboard or place a cap over it.

Next and most importantly is your colour scheme, getting the painting and flooring right is an essential part of bathroom decorations. Firstly, regarding the flooring I would highly recommend some type of linoleum system, as there's always a lot of water in the bathroom. With lino it is very easy to clean up. Next you should decide on what type of colour scheme you would like your bathroom to have. Would you like it to match the rest of your house? Or would you like something totally different? Whatever you choose I can guarantee that it will not cost you a fortune.

Finally, you should only remodel your bathroom if you feel that it needs to be done. Never listen to what people say and the ideas that they may have (its your bathroom and your decision). There is a reason why people created an all in one bathroom and toilet, and that was to be more efficient. Don't go spending a fortune on something that is not needed.
