Woman's innocent bathroom makeover snap sparks heated hygiene debate

A woman has sparked a heated debate online after posting an innocent picture of her bathroom.

The anonymous woman took to Facebook to share a snap of her bathroom after giving it a bit of a makeover.

“Finally found the perfect art piece for the empty space above our toilet! Waiting for your opinions!” she told members of the Cleaning & Organising Inspiration Australia group.

The snap showed her toilet area which had been decorated with a shelf with several ornaments, as well as a picture frame of a dog.

But many people were left baffled by one particular detail.

To the righthand side of the toilet was a cup full of toothbrushes - and many people were concerned by how unhygienic that was.

One person said: "Ewwwww, the open toothbrush is literally right next to your toilet."

Another wrote: "Toothbrushes above the toilet. Poo flakes, wee and fart flakes and the toilet water flushings. Yuk!"

"Oh no. Please don’t tell me the toothbrush is for your mouth, it’s the only thing I see here," said a third, while a fourth added: "Thought it was cute till I saw the toothbrushes."

But others came to the woman’s defence, pointing out how the toothbrushes had been positioned away from the toilet.

"My toilet is next to my sink. Been here 18/19 yrs. Toothbrush and toothpaste in a jar on the sink. Still not dead," said one person.

Another wrote: "There is a Myth Busters episode that proved it doesn’t matter where you stick your toothbrush in the entire house (yes, entire house), it is covered in an equal amount of faecal matter because that’s how much poo poo is floating around your house."

Someone else also commented on the woman's creativity and praised her decor choices, saying: "Love the photo it’s perfect," about the framed poodle image.
