I go to brush my teeth just now and...my toothbrush is in the car...we packed all my stuff yesterday just in case. I guess we forgot to get my toiletries out.

SO............I had to use DH's Toothbrush bc I'm too lazy to go out to the car to get my stuff.

Have any of ya'll had to do this??

OR...tell us the yuckiest thing you've had to use that were other peoples... feel free to *edit* where you think we might toss our cookies.

Honestly, that wouldn't gross me out at all. If he's your DH you likely already kiss him...right? How different is that really? You're already sharing germs and most likely you're already immune to anything that he has.

I'd share if I had too...my DH would be the one more squigged out about it than me though. I just bought a toothbrush for a buck to put in my hospital bag.

I've done it by mistake before, and it totally grosses me out. Yeah, I kiss him, but the toothbrush is a whole other level.

But, on my own level of grossness, it doesn't bother me *tooooo* much.

This! Total mistake and it has a huge ick factor for me! Or...when he gets up for work before us all and is long gone...then I get up to brush my teeth and realize MY toothbrush is wet already well that grosses me out SO bad!

doesn't gross me out at all. We kind of have a community toothbrush drawer and just grab the closest one.: We are rarely sick so i guess it isn't that big of a deal.
When dh wears his socks or underwear 2 days in a row. That grosses me out.

I have friends that this bothers, too, but it doesn't make a difference to me. I routinely use his toothbrush if I forget to take mine into the shower with me.

I don't like to do it and see the ick factor, but I have done it. And I know that if dh can't find his, he will use mine. It's something I could live without, but I'm not that grossed out about it.

I used DH's by accident once and it grossed me out, which actually surprised me, because I have no problem eating after him or kissing him, etc.

I've had a bit of a cockroach problem, and the worst toothbrush related incident I've had is when I woke up in the middle of the night to use the restroom, only to see a roach "nibbling" away at my toothbrush! Needless to say I threw the thing out right away :! I would rather share a toothbrush with a guy than with a cockroach any day

That would gross me out, but more b/c DH stores his toothbrush head down in the holder (where all the grimey stuff accumlates) instead of head up so it can dry out better.

I recently changed my username, but I still say "Hello" to all those who know me in real life! Hi P, S, T and K!

Using DH's toothbrush doesn't really gross me out, but that's only because he doesn't use it. Now THAT is disgusting!

i can't use my dh's bath towel. he has a really bad habit of blowing his nose in his towel after he gets out of the shower and then hanging the towel back up to dry. i've caught him using mine a few times and totally chewed him out on the plus side--he hangs his towel by jamming it in a ball around the towel rack--so it's pretty easy to tell if he has used mine or his own

ewwwwwww, now sharing a bath towel grosses me out! I won't even share with my kids. If I even suspect that someone has *touched* my towel, I have to get a new one! Hand towel, no biggee - but something that touches my *ahem* bottom, no way. In college, one of my dorm roomies used to wipe her mouth on my towel after brushing her teeth (leaving toothpaste, that's how I knew). That's when I realized I had issues, and I became a towel-nazi.

Of course, I don't shower every day, anyway ...
