If you have a ceramic toothbrush holder with holes at the top for your toothbrushes, it can trap "gunk" at the bottom. Most of these holders have a little plug that you can take out to clean it. To keep germs down, poke an antibacterial wipe down into the holder to rest at the bottom. Drips will land on the wipe, and you can just take out the plug to remove it when you are cleaning your bathroom. No more disgusting gunk will accumulate.

I have a vertical plastic toothbrush holder that cannot be opened. How do I clean the toothpaste residue on the bottom of it? I was thinking of filling it partially with water, through the toothbrush holes and putting a "substance" in it, ie: broken Polident tablets, distilled white vinegar, etc. Please help. Thanks.

Pour a mixture of bleach water and hot water in it and let it sit for a while. Then wash in some soapy water. It will not only clean, but also disinfect.

Maybe you had better stick with some vinegar. If it was ceramic, you could use some bleach and water.

Why don't you just get rid of it? Sometimes things are more trouble than they are worth.
