Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

There is no risk of getting HIV from either of the situations you've described. No risk. For hygiene's sake though, please don't do this with toothbrushes what will be used again.. any chance of fecal matter getting into your family's mouth is not good.

Hope this helps!
