Bamboo Toothbrush with Replaceable Head
Your Toothbrush | Our Planet
Introducing the one & only etee Bamboo Toothbrush with a Replaceable Head! Hold up - WHAT!?! It's true. The paparazzi can't get enough of these beauties and they're a SERIOUS hot commodity around here.
Each toothbrush consists of 2 (fully assembled) parts - first you've got your rounded toothbrush handle, whose base is dipped in water-based paint (the paint helps to protect from any water damage that you get at the base of other bamboo toothbrushes). Added to that is the detachable toothbrush head with 100% plant-based bristles. The total length of the toothbrush is 7.5". Hooray!
The rounded toothbrush handle is made of FSC certified bamboo and the bristles are made from castor bean oil, which is the most eco-friendly alternative on the market today - double hooray!
What else is in my toothbrush?
A metal staple is used to clamp the the plant-based bristles into the brush, keeping them from falling out you're brushing your chiclets! It's a normal part of a toothbrush, and even plastic ones have staples in them too! When you're ready to replace your toothbrush head (dentists suggest every 3 months), simply replace with a new head and keep the handle. To dispose of the used head, you can also remove the bristles from the head using a pair of pliers, which will also remove the staple, and compost the bamboo. The bristles are not yet biodegradable, but fear not, we're working on a solution!
The brush is soft without sacrificing a good cleaning for my teeth. My dentist recommends a softer toothbrush for my gums and this one works very well for me.
I wonder if the used brush heads can be composted.
I like this bamboo brush. The multi colored brush heads allow 3 people to share one brush handle. It cues you every 30 seconds to move to another part of your mouth. It holds a charge for a long time, too. No need to keep the charger in the bathroom. I hope it lasts a long time.
The only improvement I recommend is to include a brush head cover - non plastic, of course.
I hesitated to submit a review because I have loved all my Etee stuff so much, and I really love this option! I do really wish there was an option for a firmer bristle, though. Since they ate pretty soft, I feel like I have to be a lot more purposeful or areas won't get as much brushing as they need. But I still really love that this is available! ❤
