Handsfree, automatic toothbrush is not new. We have seen at least two at this point. While the previous two we saw, Unico and Amabrush, have brushes, this new entrant from Denmark called Unobrush uses a patent-pending medical-grade sponge-like material instead. The material, known as UnoFoam, completely reimagines the concept of brush. Or should I say, completely replaces the brush. Here’s the gist on how this game-changing material works: Continue reading Handsfree Toothbrush With Sponge-like ‘Brush’ Is A Real Game Changer
I use an OralB electric toothbrush that came with a brush cover and I am glad it did because, I am wary of creepy crawlies that may be all over it when it is not in use. Also, I was informed (by some experiments) that fecal matter, invisible to the naked eyes, may get into toothbrushes that share the same space as the toilet. It happens when one flushes the toilet without keeping the lid close. Apparently, vapors containing fecal matter get airborne, spreading as far as 9 feet. Holy shit. They are not serious that we have been shoving shit into our mouths, are they? Continue reading Rouse Case: A Toothbrush And Case That’s Anti-Bacterial And Sustainable
Notwithstanding the controversial report on how “there’s little proof that (dental) flossing works,” I still floss. I mean, seriously, we are not going to kid ourselves that interdental spaces are going to clean themselves out, are we?

Don’t you just love these studies that tell you what’s good and what’s not? I mean, besides the obvious, there’s a bunch of studies for on topics like is mouthwash actually good, or whether coffee is detrimental to your health or not. Last week, we came across one such report relating to dental flossing, which naturally, made me raise my eyebrows. According to the report, “there’s little proof that (dental) flossing works,” and the U.S. actually admitted that its (dental flossing) effectiveness “had never been researched, as required.” Continue reading Wait, What? Now, There’s Little Proof That Flossing Works?
Toothbrush is an everyday object we use at least twice a day and we pretty much don’t give a damn about it until it is time change. But according to some studies, we really should give a damn about these bristle-packed oral hygiene tool. Why? Because it shares the same space as the god damn toilet, that’s why. According to a study, there’s a 60 percent chance of your toothbrush is covered in fecal matter (yes, that’s poop!) – thanks to the act of flushing each time a person is done with dropping the kids at the pool. The flushing ejects droplets and vapors naked to human eyes onto the floor and in the air, with the latter eventually reaching the tool that we put into our mouth. That’s one good reason to keep the lid of the toilet close when flushing and also, keep your toothbrush’s bristle encased in toothbrush case such as Brushield.

Changing toothbrush on regular basis is a first world problem and apparently, someone have had enough of this wastage which, according to Goodwell & Company, would see a person dumping 12 pounds of plastic toothbrushes in his or her lifetime and the population Earth on the whole can generate as much as 80 billion pounds of plastic waste. We don’t quite agree though, cos’ it is after all, a first world problem which means not all 7.1 billion folks on planet Earth shares the same frivolous treatment when it comes to toothbrush, if they even brushes at all. Still, we thought the proposed open-source toothbrush by Goodwell & Company could be a serious game changer in the oral care segment. The outfit views disposal oral care product like the toothbrush as “planned obsolescence” and has a grand plan to halt it, and the open-source toothbrush is their weapon of choice which happens to look pretty awesome too.
