Electric toothbrushes -- where do you put them?

Our family switched to electric toothbrushes several months ago. But I can't find a good place to store them!

They don't fit in traditional toothbrush holders, and because they stand up they drip and make a mess on the vanity.

I have kept an eye out for some way to store these things but haven't come across anything yet.

Any ideas?

I know that my braun one is hangable on the wall.

Yeah they are messy! I just keep mine in the corner of my bathroom counter and I give it a quick clean everyday before putting it back on the base.

I keep my Philips Sonicare in the cabinet above the sink. As for cleaning them, I just hold the entire head assembly upside down under the water while the unit is running. I then allow the unit to run a little bit afterwards to shake off excess water. Works well enough to keep the entire assembly clean.

I first got an electric toothbrush about 6 years ago, I could NEVER go back to a hand one. The electric one is so much better.

Hubby and I do this, but the kids....forget it!!

My kids run in and out of their bathroom all the time, and the toothbrushes get knocked over regularly. I just want to put them in something not *too* ugly so it looks neater.

I just bought an oversized steel mesh pencil cup to see if it will do the job. Not too attractive, but I can't find anything else.
