Choosing the Best Toothpaste Holder
All toothpaste holders aim to make life cleaner, tidier and easier. But they achieve this in different ways.
Use our summary of key features below to decide what matters to you. This will help you find a product that ticks all the boxes and does what you need it to.
- Placement – Countertop or wall mounted? On the countertop it will be taking up space. On the wall you will need to think about fixing.
- Fixing – Screw fix, sticky pads or suction cups? What sort of surface will the holder be fixed to? Smooth surfaces are needed for sticky pads or suction cups. Porous surfaces (like wallpaper) or uneven walls will require screw fixing.
- Hygiene – for extra hygiene you may want to consider a model with a sterilizer. In this case a power supply or batteries will be needed.
- Toothpaste – do you want a model that dispenses, toothpaste?
- Appearance – What colors will suit your bathroom décor?
In our line-up of best toothpaste dispensers, we have summarized key features to help you shortlist the right products for you. Then to finalize your decision just read the relevant reviews beneath.
