Sinks could be an infection source and should avoid placing toothbrushes directly on counter surfaces. Totes can be used for personal items so they do not touch the bathroom countertop.
Does this tote stand for "a plastic box" (Wiktionary)?
I also thought of "tote bag", but that would not be very handy, would it, to put bags on the countertop? So I thought that a small plastic container would be ideal. But on the other hand, the Wiktionary article says that the container meaning refers to logistics.
