okay, i live with an infomercial junkie. he bought this 'germ terminator' for our bathroom. basically it steam cleans your toothbrushes which supposedly minimizes your chances of being sick from bacteria on your brush yaddy yaddy. anyway, the basket holder is cheap and this hard plastic and it hasn't held up well over the past couple years. apparently, my sweet husband jammed his toothbrush in the 'terminator' causing it to break through the basket and lay on the hot metal that heats the water so quickly. it heats plastic quickly too. luckily i figured it out before the bristles caught on fire.
