I know he is very busy at work, I know they look similar, BUT, mine has a pink circle on it, so he should LOOK and then LEAVE WELL ALONE. Should I go, or kick him out?!

Depends on what he used it for!

My son put hand wash on mine and cleaned the sink with it

THEN I used it

ZZZenAgain Thu 16-Jun-11 08:02:27

leave it to soak in boiling water or replace it

hide it in future

This also makes me feel sick. My DH has done this. Then I remember I licked his balls last Sunday so I supposed the toothbrush thing isn't THAT bad smile

See, I've used my H's before. But I'm not sure how I woudl react if he used mine

<double standards>

well in general DH and I have separate toothbrushes but if we're away, say, and only one of us has remembered one, we'll both use it. Don't see the problem

O my deah gal, there's no need to divorce over such a petty matter. Simply buy yourself a new toothbrush (or toothbrush head if you're electrified).

Use his for getting to those hard to reach places under the rim of the lavatory bowl - remember to rinse under cold running water before returning it to its usual place on the rack/shelf/china thing with holes.

WTF - don't you kiss??

Ha ha cybbo double standards are so handy.

I have now joined the "just spat coffee over my laptop" crowd - I generally don't believe it happens but now I do!! grin

Kick him to the kerb.

No but seriously, is it that much of a big deal? Don't you [ahem] swap body fluids on a fairly regular basis?

ZZZenAgain Thu 16-Jun-11 08:14:03

double standards here too. I hate it if dh uses my brush

but I have (accidently) used his and I thought nothing of it

ZZZenAgain Thu 16-Jun-11 08:14:21

as in hairbrush

so far as I know he has not used my toothbrush

TrinityIsAShreddingFatRhino Thu 16-Jun-11 08:15:21

I'm hoping you realise that you are being silly but that you are suffering from an irrational hatred of shared toothbrushes

I dont like sharing mine either but I wouldn't kill dp over it

like daintynuts
I swallowed his ahem on saturday so does it really matter grin wink

We always end up sharing at some point.

StrawberryMewMew Thu 16-Jun-11 08:26:15

I used my DP's as a vibrator.... I suggest you do the same with his. grin

AmandaCooper Thu 16-Jun-11 08:27:11

At least yours cleans his teeth. Mine has to be nagged into submission.

jeckadeck Thu 16-Jun-11 08:32:03

god you need to get out more, tbh. I've used my own toothbruth to clean between my baby's toes and then used it again. I know that makes me a skank but I didn't get sick ;)

Put the toothbrosh in some sterilising fluid (Milton/supermarket own brand etc), rinse well and use as normal. Should do the trick.

Cymar Thu 16-Jun-11 08:33:48

tooth brush blush

Ok, I'm being unreasonable, it is just that I only bought myself a new polishing head at the weekend and it was pristine. He has terrible teeth (they look ok, but the dentist is just keeping the rot at bay!), and although we clearly kiss et al, it just doesn't seem the same; I don't mind his fluids, I just don't want his rot.
