Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing ones. (You can learn more about our rating system and how we pick each item here.)

And while we’ve written about lots of dental-care products before — including the best electric toothbrushes, the best baby toothbrushes, the best tongue scrapers, and even the best dog dental-care products — here, we’ve rounded up the best toothbrush holders, as praised by the most enthusiastic reviewers on Amazon.

Best-rated toothbrush holder

The standout, and most frequent, positive comments about this toothbrush holder were that it’s “easy to clean” and that it is “well made.” Happy customers like this one also appreciate that the holder does not trap water or excess toothpaste in its base: “This holder is nice and open, which allows any extra moisture to dry quickly. If need be, I can simply pick up the toothbrush holder and wipe the sink.” The same reviewer adds, “This seems very well made and I appreciate the extra thought that was put into this design.” Another reviewer says, “We like that it is small and compact, and that it stands on small legs so all water drains out, keeping both the holder and the toothbrush holders dry and clean.” And this reviewer liked that there is a separate holder for toothpaste: “This stainless toothbrush holder also holds a tube of toothpaste. It seems very solid and well made. It keeps our toothbrushes cleaner too.”

Best-rated (less expensive) toothbrush holder

Reviewers loved this toothbrush holder because it’s “easy to install,” “saves space,” and, as one explains, it “keeps the brush heads covered and safe from germs.” One very pleased reviewer calls it a “wonderful little product,” explaining, “I wanted to get my toothbrushes off my bathroom counter and out of sight. So I stuck this inside of my medicine cabinet with both our toothbrushes inside. It’s been hanging and used for about 4 weeks now.” This reviewer, who uses the Pop-a-Toothbrush for the heads of her electric toothbrush, says, “I wanted something to hang the Sonicare brush heads and I came across this nifty little case. It’s so easy to attach to the tile wall with included double sided tape.” “Absolutely love this little thing,” says another reviewer, who described it as “much better than any other toothbrush holder that I’ve had because it stays out of the way and keeps the brush heads covered and away from germs. For the price I couldn’t be happier.”

And now some micro-picks for every type of toothbrush holder you might be looking for.

Best toothbrush holder with a cover

Reviewers of the OXO Good Grips holder love its large capacity, air vents that help brushes to dry, and cover that keeps bathroom germs away from the bristles. This reviewer even had some tips for keeping it clean: “It holds regular size toothbrushes and tubes of toothpaste. I wash mine with dish soap and let it air dry. Love it! Keeps the brushes clean and has air vents to let it dry.” Another reviewer says, “This container holds all 5 of our toothbrushes (we use the middle as well, instead of holding toothpaste there) and they are all dry by bedtime, when it’s time to brush again. I know our toothbrushes are protected, and it’s very easy to clean, inside and out.” And one enthusiastic customer who really hates germs says, “I’ve only had it a few days, but very happy with this purchase. I don’t want germs flying all over our toothbrushes. Really grosses me out. I bought all new tooth brushes to put in there so we’re starting with a clean slate, so to speak.”

Best toothbrush holder for kids

Parent reviewers say they love these people-shaped toothbrush holders because they motivate children to put their toothbrushes away while being strong enough to handle rough use. That includes this reviewer, who writes, “These are perfect for us, and because the kids think they are fun, they always hang their toothbrush back up rather than leaving it on the counter.” And another reviewer says, “My whole family thinks these are really cute. They’re perfect for what we need them for — keeping the bathroom counter clean, and propping up our bamboo toothbrushes to dry out properly. The suction is really strong and seem like they will hold up well.” And this happy customer says, “I had no issue sticking these to my bathroom mirror and tub tiles. None of the ones I put up weeks ago have fallen, even with my kids haphazardly yanking their toothbrushes from the little dudes’ arms. They are very colorful and super useful.”

Best toothbrush holder for the shower

Over 50 positive reviewers used the word “love” to describe this holder. And many, many others remarked on how easy it is to install and convenient it is to use. One reviewer who bought it for her brother says, “I got this product for my brother to organize his razor and toothpaste & toothbrush. He loves it because it was easy to apply, has really good grip strength and keeps his stuff nice and neat. I love it because it’s SUPER easy to clean so things don’t get gross!” Another reviewer writes, “This item is PERFECT. I needed something to hold my razor and toothpaste/brush, I didn’t like just putting them on the upper window shelf in the shower … I needed zero adhesive for it to stay! And after 6 days and 5 showers, it hasn’t moved.” This satisfied fan comments, “It was quick and easy to mount the item to the tile wall in my shower. Months later, I still haven’t had any issues. I clean it with dish soap every so often, but it’s just as white as the day I got it. I keep a full tube of toothpaste, a couple of toothbrushes, a metal razor and a spare blade in it at all times, and I have yet to have a problem.”

Best stylish toothbrush holder

Folks who reviewed this holder loved its stylish aesthetic as well as its space-saving benefits. One man who admitted to messy toothbrushing says, “My wife has been struggling with me leaving my toothbrush by the bathroom sink and the resulting mess that it creates. This toothbrush holder has increased the cleanliness of our bathroom counter top, and it’s also really stylish too. Overall a great purchase, and has helped our relationship.” Another reviewer, who bought two, liked that the toothpaste and toothbrushes have different compartments: “I saw the pic on Amazon and liked the fact that the cup holder was for toothpaste and it had a separate slot for toothbrushes. I don’t have to worry about nasty toothpaste stains in cup. This was exactly as shown. I bough two and really like them a lot!” And this reviewer concludes, “I like the color, it’s easy to clean, and so far it’s holding up well. It doesn’t take up too much room and our toothbrushes aren’t touching.”

Best toothbrush holder for small bathrooms

On top of the positive comments about the size and minimal look of these holders, reviewers says that the doughnut shape helps with moisture drainage. One reviewer explains, “I was looking for a more elegant and sanitary solution. So many holders grip just around the head of the brush or have bases that collect drips, creating a bacteria haven in the process. The Airmoon ceramic holder makes so much more sense. I’ve been using them for a few months now and they worked. Easy to clean, aesthetically pleasing and take up very little room in the bathroom. I highly recommend.” This happy reviewer calls it “BRILLIANT, minimalist and functional” and adds, “This product makes so much sense. Much less gross than most toothbrush holders. I thought these would be small cups to hold the brushes, but they are actually rings with holes all the way through — even better because water cannot accumulate inside the holder.” Another reviewer writes, “I have been using this for several months and LOVE it. Its very small but works great. Always wonderful to have less clutter on the countertop.”
