Would you brush your teeth in public? Well now you can.

21 Sep

Applying make-up at a dining table? No way.  Pluck your eyebrows in public view of anyone? Would prefer not. File your nails in the office? Okay, sometimes, but only if a nail breaks. Brush your teeth while waiting for the bus? WHAT?

That’s right. Apparently it’s just fine to wash your pearly whites on a bus, in the back of a taxi, or where ever the mood takes you. And that’s why Colgate have launched single-use toothbrushes. The blue bead released a minty flavour as the plastic bristles scrub your teeth (no rinsing required) and they’ve apparently come a long way from the little plastic one-use tooth brushes you used be able to buy in public bathrooms of swanky hotels.

Colgate Wish Peppermint Brushes are available from amazon.com and drugstore.com $2.50 for four.

    You know this kind of makes me angry. What total and utter wrecklessness in regards to the environment. Plastic isn’t reclyable. Couldn’t people just use a regular tooth brush that at least has the life span of a few months. Does everything have to be disposal and easy.

    Yuck at the very idea, but I guess if you were really caught on the hop. I have a case a spare tooth brush I keep in my bag.
