Pinterest Tip: Clothespins as Toothbrush Holders

So, I am sure you all see those long list pictures going around Pinterest that have a bunch of tips that supposedly work. Now, as with the internet, you can never be too sure of anything until you try it because a lot of things on the internet flop or they leave out crucial information that you need to make it work for yourself. Well, I tried one of those today, from this picture here.

Among the many things it claims, one of them is that you can use a clothespin as a toothbrush holder.  As I went to the basement and actually grabbed a clothespin, I began to get skeptical. I wasn’t sure how it would work or even if it would work at all. The legs of the clothespin in the picture seemed more spread apart than I felt they were going to be in reality.

But you always have to give something a shot right?

Soooo, to my pleasant surprise, it totally worked. It took a little adjusting on the first one, but once I did it one time, it was easy peasy to do it again. I’ll even show you proof. (Please pardon our toothbrushes! Writing this post has made me realize they really need to be replaced so I’m going to get on that ASAP. Also why does it seem like sharing a picture of your toothbrush is really personal or something? Haha. They’re in our bathroom and I’m sure many people have seen them).

I also decided to try it on Dom’s toothbrush. I wasn’t sure if it would work because Dom’s toothbrush is both chunkier and shorter than ours, but to my surprise, that worked also.


I’m not going to say it’s going to work on all toothbrushes, because I haven’t tried it on all toothbrushes, but I would guess that it would work on the majority of them. I would also guess that it wouldn’t work on electric toothbrushes, but who knows? Either way, if you would like to keep your toothbrush off the counter while traveling, test out the clothespin method first at home and then if it works, take it with you. It will take up hardly any space in your luggage so it is a simple and cost-effective way to keep your toothbrush from touching questionable surfaces.
