Keeps kids' toothbrushes and toothpaste in reach with a sponge holder

OXO sponge holderFrom Nicole of Parentville:

I use a flexible sponge holder for kids' toothbrush/toothpaste, since typically kids' brushes/paste are too little to fit in a taller toothbrush cup. Plus, the bottom of this holder has holes, so water is less likely to collect and can drain on the bottom.

Nicole! You have just solved a problem that has plagued us for YEARS! Thank you!

We don't have a vanity in our bathroom, so space on/near the sink is very limited. My husband affixed one of these to the side of the sink (it hangs over the trash can) -- perfect!

This is a great idea - we use a standard mesh pencil cup for the same purpose, which drains pretty well too.
