We all have our own little habits that we try to keep to ourselves and do only in the privacy of our own homes, but there are some things people do, whether it be at home or out in public, that are downright unsanitary and just plain uncouth.

Sharing Toothbrushes

One of the worst things to share with a family or loved one is a toothbrush. The adult mouth contains anywhere between 500 to 1,000 types of bacteria at any given time. And that does not include the millions of germs living there as well. Or the food particles unseen to the human eye that now call that very same toothbrush you want to borrow home. If you forget yours at home during an overnight stay, you may be tempted to share one but be forewarned. A quick run to the store may be inconvenient at first but it beats transferring particles from someone’s steak dinner they had last week into your mouth.
