Let's face it - Brushing teeth day after day can be bit of a pain. What's even worse is trying to grab 'handfuls' of water to rinse out the toothpaste. Not only is it difficult, but also, a colossal waste of precious water. You could of course use a rinsing cup, but that has to be cleaned constantly! Now, a design firm has finally seen the light or should we say the rinse?
New York based Amron Experimental recently unveiled a toothbrush that looks very much like a conventional one except for one thing - pour water on the handle and it magically sprouts straight into your mouth, making rinsing a cinch and, a lot of fun!
Called Rinser, the brush is designed such that its handle has a hollowed out section that collects tap water and directs it to a tiny spout. All the user has to do, is aim the tap onto the scoop and the toothbrush will transform into a water fountain.
Besides the fact that it will not be available until November, the only drawback to this nifty invention is its hefty $22 USD price tag - And that, is only if you pre-order it from the design firm's website. Once it goes retail, the price tag is expected to go up to an even steeper $34.99! Since it does come with an replaceable head, one can argue that the toothbrush is technically only $11 (or $17.50) apiece - An argument worth making if you are trying to convince your mum or dad to get you one!
