View Full Version : Nifty tooth brushes

AT '04 Trail Days, Backpacker Magazine gave out these nifty tooth brushes with the toothpaste already in the handle. You turned the handle and the toothpaste came out in the brush. I loved it so much I tried adding my own toothpaste when it ran out...but that was a little messy.

Anyone know where you can get these?

I had one of these a long time ago. Pretty neat, but the toothpaste tended to acquire a concrete-like consistency between hikes. I eventually decided that the trouble of cleaning the thing outweighed the advantages of having the toothpaste in the handle.

I just got one. I'll be on the lookout for hardening, perhaps using a gel type toothpaste will prevent this?

I was taking it on a short trip, so I only put a little in. Make sure you put enough in to fill the space up to the brush:o .
