Could this be the best place to store your toothbrush?

Could this be the best place to store your toothbrush? It certainly puts a smile on our face. Why can't all practical solutions be this cute?!

Most of us just use an old glass or cup to store our toothbrushes, it's the obvious solution, right? Hmmm... we didn't really want to bring this up, but have you looked inside the bottom of yours recently? (We wouldn't advise it!) This project lets you lose the grubby glass, free up some space and replace it with a row of smiley faces for everyone's toothbrushes.


Because Sugru sticks to most materials, including metals, ceramic and glass, you can attach these almost anywhere — on the inside of the bathroom cabinet or maybe right onto the mirror itself... that bits up to you! And because Sugru is removable, you can always take these off again if you ever need to.

Once you've decided where you want to mount yours, you just need to build a simple Sugru hook on it's side following the steps below.

Need to stock up on Sugru? Head over to the Sugru shop.

Step 1 — Roll a single-use pack of Sugru into a ball. (Pinch a little piece off and keep it aside - you'll need this for the eyes later)

Step 2 — Press the Sugru onto the surface and pinch it into a sausage shape, then carefully bend it sideways to form a hook.

Step 3 — Divide the little piece of Sugru you saved earlier into two dots, and stick them an inch above your hook. These will help keep your toothbrush in place.

24 hours later the Sugru will have cured into lovely grippy rubber hooks. Smiles all around!
