    an adjective that we use for personal things

    I once saw an adjective that we use for personal things like toothbrush, comb, etc. But I can't remember it now. Can you help me?

    not a teacher

    If you mean a noun, the term is toiletries.

    Toiletries would be my guess too. It refers to the kinds of things you would put in a washbag when going on holiday - shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, toothpaste, toothbrush, mouthwash, hairspray, deodorant, anti-perspirant, body spray, perfume, after shave, etc.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    And don't forget tweezers, razors, shaving cream/gel, nail clipper, eau de toilette/perfume, nail polish, nail polish remover, cotton pads, make-up and, of course, a big trunk to put it all in (and a car to load the trunk in)
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    Re: an adjective that we use for personal things

    I have just realised that the OP asked for an adjective not a noun but I can't think of one so I'm sticking with toiletries for now.

    Thanks a lot. I killed myself to remember, but I couldn't.
    Actually it was my mistake. Yes that's toiletries and it is a noun. Sorry for making you confused.
