The Disposable Toothbrush Done Right
How about a disposable toothbrush that dispenses two or three “servings” of toothpaste? I know there are those thin, miniature toothbrushes with a single serving toothpaste pellet buried in the plastic bristles, but that design makes for an uncomfortable and difficult experience.
What I’m imagining is a full-sized toothbrush (perhaps a bit shorter, but not more than 2 inches shorter) with real bristles and a full diameter. Below the head of the toothbrush, near where your thumb naturally rests, is a toothpaste-filled bubble coming out of the shaft of the toothbrush that, when pressed by the thumb, pushes or “pumps” the toothpaste through the base of the brush and up through the center of the bristles.
Quality materials, proper size, and no moving parts—this satisfies all three, and I do not know of another disposable toothbrush that does.
Plus, it’s 100 percent biodegradable.
