Normally when we write about a toothbrush it’s a high-tech rechargeable wonder with built-in timers and vibrating plaque-busting features. The Brush & Rinse however has nothing like that but in my opinion is far more useful than even the most expensive brushes on the market. The back of the toothbrush’s head has been specially engineered so that it can effectively redirect water from a faucet to your mouth for easy rinsing. As the designers put it:
At this point, no one should be using disposable cups for rinsing after brushing. No one should have to wash a glass or cup everytime they rinse. No one should have to lap water from their hand. No one should be forced to slurp excess water from toothbrush bristles. Current methods of getting water into our mouths for rinsing after brushing are sloppy, create waste, and place unnecessary stress on our bodies. And, people love water fountains.
The Brush & Rinse toothbrush has a retail price of $3 but doesn’t actually appear to be available for sale on the Amron Experimental website. However you can buy 1 of 27 original working prototypes for only $1,750 each.
