What's In Your Toothbrush?

Tom's-of-Maine-toothbrushHow often do you change out your toothbrush? Only after getting over the flu (yes, you are supposed to do that)? They say every 3 months or when you see some bristles starting to bend off to the side. Mouth health is very important!! I mean, who wants to kiss a yuck mouth?

Going to the toothbrush aisle can be almost as intimidating as going to the cosmetic section in the drugstore with so many choices in your line of sight. I was pretty excited when the decision was made for me by TOM’S OF MAINE’s PR when they sent me the new Naturally Clean toothbrush to try out. Like I would imagine, the handle is made of a recyclable plant-based handle that is made from renewable castor oil plants instead of petroleum. And something I never thought about, toothbrushes are not recyclable! But these are through their TerraCycle collection program, which you can learn about here. I like that!

And this one seems to stack up with the other major brands like having a angled neck and multi-level bristles. Something they add is the handle is dye-free and contains no BPAs (a chemical that makes plastics last for 25+ years and found it everything you see every day) or artificial colors.

Choose from Soft or Medium for $3.99 @ amazon.com.
