I’ll keep this short and sweet, but I stumbled into a toothbrush that fits perfectly in the delicate and dainty holes of the built-in vintage toothbrush holder in our very pink bathroom and I think you should know about it.
I recently stocked up on David’s Toothpaste and when my three tubes arrived in the mail I was surprised to see a slim cardboard box also in the package. Inside was a perfectly slender and smooth bamboo toothbrush—a thank you, I imagine, for splurging on toothpaste that comes in a recyclable tube.
The box was marked Zero Waste Cartel and a very quick search got me to a place where I could order a whole bunch more. The brushes come in one size that works as well for the kids in our family as the adults, and with a choice of beige or rainbow bristles depending on your preference. The bamboo handles are easily marked with a bit of paint should further differentiating brushes for family members be something you need to do. See also, adding a small colorful rubber band, which would have the added advantage of helping to keep your brush up and away from the holder if these are the kinds of things you think about.
I don’t have intel about whether these toothbrushes will perfectly fit the ceramic toothbrush holders that may or may not be in any of your homes, but I did measure the handle in case it’s helpful for those of you invested enough to still be reading: 3/16ths thick and 9/16ths wide at the widest!
