Packing light is becoming a necessity with all the extra fees airlines are imposing on travelers. You’re probably going to leave a lot of stuff at home, but even if you don’t bring much else on your vacation, you aren’t going to leave home without your toothbrush. I keep a special travel toothbrush in my toiletry bag. I know a lot of people just take their regular one, but I like to keep the most I can in my bag, so I don’t have to remember to pack too much when I’m traveling anywhere.
I’ve had many travel toothbrushes over the years and I’ve discovered that a case is a must. I want to be able to brush my teeth, throw it in my toiletry bag and be able to check out. I don’t want to pull it out and have hair and other weird stuff attached to it. Gross, right? Having a case also keeps your other stuff from getting all wet and soggy.
The OHSO travel toothbrush gives you an all-in-one hygiene accessory for your teeth. It has a hollow handle that you can fill with your favorite toothpaste and then cap and bring with your everywhere. No need to pack a tube of toothpaste, too. In order to use your OHSO, you twist the barrel and it squeezes paste onto your brush. Convenient and easy! It eliminates mess and doesn’t leak, so you don’t end up with water or toothpaste on all your other necessities.
With the OHSO, you will not have to share your toothpaste with anyone or realize you forgot it at home. Everyone has their own store of toothpaste with them, which is pretty useful. OHSO sent me two brushes. One with a clear handle and a fancier one with a chrome handle. I chose the clear, so you could see the inside of the handle and how the toothpaste goes in and see the mechanism inside that pushed the toothpaste into the brush.
This isn’t the first brush I’ve owned that also has toothpaste in the handle, but it certainly is the most attractive one and the only leak-proof one. It also is the only one that has let me use my own toothpaste. My only complaint is that the toothpaste comes out at the bottom of the brush, so you have to hold the toothbrush upside down as you twist the handle to squish the paste out and onto the actual bristles. It didn’t make it less convenient to use and, as you can see, I had no problems with brushing my teeth with it.
When you purchase an OHSO travel toothbrush, you can choose the basic set or the gift set that includes an extra brush head, a travel tube of toothpaste and a universal adapter for using your favorite paste. It’s a great addition to your travel bag and a fun gift for the traveler on your list or other travel companions.
