Go change your toothbrush holder

First of all, it's forty degrees here. In May. In Georgia. Not happy about this.  Of course I just planted flowers in the window boxes and around the patio in preparation for our company and now, I'm sure, it will all die.  Ah, Blackberry Winter.

Second, I consider myself a pretty neat person. Now with a four year old and a twelve month old things are often not tidy but the house is clean. I vacuum a couple of times a week and I'm pretty vigilant about cleaning the bathrooms.  So imagine my surprise when I was cleaning the bathroom and I casually, quite by accident, got a glimpse into the toothbrush holder. Oh. My. God.

I don't know, did I miss the boat or something? Is there like some rule about cleaning a toothbrush holder? Do you run it through the dishwasher? How did I not know this? Seriously, the holder is about a year old and I can not even describe the mold and bacteria fest that was at the bottom of the dark container. Ugh, I shudder to recall. I immediately tossed the container and the toothbrushes.

So now I'm off to find a new container. One that's open, where you can see the bottom and easily keep it clean.
