  1. I’d be terrified that dripping water from the toothbrush would somehow interfere with the outlet!

    But the toothbrush is stored /below/ the outlet, dripping water shouldn’t be a problem!

    i’m not worried about dripping water. . . i’d be afraid of my clumsy, tired, wet hand reaching for my toothbrush after i just showered or washed my face before bed.

  4. Is there one with multiple outlets to make up for the sockets that are obscured by this ‘shelf’?
    I guess USA must be one of those countries where outlets are encouraged in bathrooms? that seems rediculous to me.

  5. Becky Stern on said:

    Outlets in the bathroom (and the kitchen, I’m pretty sure) are required to be “trippable,” with their own short-detecting auto shutoff.
