Ever wondered whether it is hygienic to share a tube of toothpaste?
Consider the toothbrush bristles rubbing on the rim of the toothpaste.
Bacteria that rubs off the bristles of one toothbrush just sits and waits for that next toothbrush to sweep it off the toothpaste rim.

Incongruent Germaphobia-

skip dental hygiene so as not to be tainted.
skip the tainted shower so as to stay clean.

  2. Actually..looking at that picture..if you do it just right..squeezing out the toothpaste so that the tip of the tube never actually touches the brush, it is hygienic...but I did love the thoughts...and the term "incongruent germaphobia"!!!
