Making that everyday essential a little more fun!

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 6 - 2010

What might I be talking about?

Brushing your teeth!  We all do it, well… at least I hope we do… some of us even remember to do it more than once a day – special gold star for us!

But it’s kinda boring isn’t it?  Dental hygiene… hell, I’m bored writing about it and I’m only 3 (very short) paragraphs in.

So without further ado, let me show you some lovely things to make your routine a little bit more interesting!

1. Tiens Herbal Toothpaste (£6.80)

If you like quirky things from the Asian market, you might like Tiens Tianshi toothpaste!  It’s packed full of less conventional ingredients including nullipore, honeysuckle and wild chrysanthemum plant extracts whilst still maintaining a recognisable minty flavour.  It’s pretty foamy too so makes your teeth feel squeaky clean!

2. Bumblebee Toothbrush Holder (£2.90)

Too cute, I have three of these… I think you can get ladybirds too!  Stick ‘em to the tiles and they grip your (manual) toothbrushes tightly ’till you reach for them.  They stop that age old problem of water pooling in the bottom of toothbrush cups and going all manky.  Plus they look cute!

3. Koziol Kai Dental Floss Dispenser (£16.00)

Not cheap and Mr. L would kill me if I came home with one now I’ve told him how much they are… but who doesn’t want a pirahna with razor sharp teeth in their bathroom right? RIGHT?

4. Endekay Plaque Disclosing Tablets (£1.95)

I’m not the only one that remembers these things from the school dentist am I?  My Mum used to buy me a pack a week before I was due to go sit in her little portacabin in the playground.  I used to use them religiously up until the morning of the fateful appointment to make sure that I had the least amount of plaque possible.  Oh, the shame!

It was either that or walk round school with tell tale red splotches all over my teeth that showed I was a lazy arse tooth brusher!

And yes, I do still buy a pack occassionally *blush*

5. Wisdom Individual Compact Toothbrush (£1.99)

I’m fussy about toothbrushes!  I don’t own an electric one for no other reason than I’ve never looked into getting one.  I also refuse to spend over £3 on a manual which I know I’m gonna replace next month… these Wisdom Individual Toothbrushes come in some lovely designs with nice compact heads for ma petite ‘gob’ and they’re cheap!

What more do you want?

.

Do you reside in the dark ages with a manual toothbrush like me or are you a proud owner of one of those all-singing, all-dancing mega pulse action vibrating doo-dahs (we’re still talking toothbrushes right?).

    I used to have an electric toothbursh at some point, but when it broke down, I was just as happy to buy a manual and I’ve been sticking to it for a couple of years now. I like the Colgate brushes, the shape of the head is just perfect for me.

    Bumble bees rock! xxx

    Oh wow I’d forgotten about disclosing tablets! They always gave me a pink tongue and they tasted rotten! I’d be interested to try them out again though, to see how good my skillz are now ;)

    My son has one of those toothbrush holders but his is a dinosaur :D

    Man, I want me one of them toothbrush holders! (a rocketship though, I think…) I have an electric toothbrush somewhere but haven’t used it for a couple of years. The heads were mega expensive and the only way to tell them apart was a tiny coloured band at the bottom (squint) so if you’re sharing the actual base and swapping heads it gets a bit fiddly trying to remember what colour you are this month (I guess I could permanently be pink and The Man could be blue but that’s a bit boring, donchathink?) and where do you stick the other brush head in the meantime, h’mmm? Plus when it ran down the battery, we both blamed each other for not recharging it sooner.
    We’re happier with our own manual toothbrushes now.

    Have you tried non-fluoride toothpaste before? It’s better for your teeth, fluoride is a toxin.

    I know this post is well over a week old but I remember reading it and starring it just so I could come back when I had time, to comment that getting an electric toothbrush has changed the way I brush my teeth foreverrrrrr. It just cleans my teeth so much better and with more ease. I hate going on holiday because I have to use a manual and they suck! I don’t even remember how to use one properly….
