Electric Toothbrush Holder

For a while now, our family has used electric toothbrushes - and we all really like them.  These are just the inexpensive ones you can get at the grocery store, but they do seem to make our dental checkups go better :)
The problem is that they are bulky - and hard to store. 
We've had them on the edge of the sink....and they are easy to knock over (Eww if they fall on the floor!  And actually replacement brush heads are rather spendy...) and it is not quite as quick as I would like to clean the sink when I have to move these guys around.

Solution!  I cut a piece of scrap board and screwed on 4 broom clips!  (As the name indicates, they are typically used to hold a broom or mop on the wall by the handle.)

The broom clips hold the electric toothbrushes perfectly!  And now they are secure on the wall (so they won't fall and get all dirty), and they are off the counter and out of the way.  Hallelujah! 

It's the little things in life, right? :)

  5. Where did you get your broom clips?

    1. Lisa,
      I got them at the local hardware store. I don't believe they were available at Home Depot, so I went to the smaller Ace sort of hardware store, and they had them there. Good luck!

  6. Maybe I am missing something but where is the cord? That is what causes me the most problem.
