Activated Charcoal Toothbrush Cleans Your Mouth Better Than The Competition

morihata-binchotan-charcoal-toothbrushes-xl

So it seems there’s a bunch of people who believe that activated charcoal does some pretty magical things.

Binchotan Charcoal is a highly porous activated charcoal from Japan that naturally removes unpleasant odors from the air, regulates the humidity, absorbs chemicals, dissipates the electromagnetic field, generates beneficial negative ions, and is used in everything from cooking to water purification to household deodorizing.

since it allegedly does so many great things, it’s no surprise to see it integrated into the bristles of a toothbrush, an implement tasked with cleaning some of the dirtiest parts of your body. The Morihata Binchotan Charcoal Toothbrushes are black and apparently will “help remove plaque, stop bad breath, and even prevent harmful bacteria and viruses from growing within the brush itself.” Maybe it’s true, maybe it’s snake oil, but either way the toothbrush is all black, which is kind of cool. It’s $10 for one.

PullClean: Pull to Clean Your Hands

PullClean

How often do you wash your hands in a day? Most people are uncertain, but one thing’s for sure: we use our hands a lot. To write, move stuff, open doors, pick something up from the floor, or eat chips– and not necessarily in that order. Who knows, you might be eating grime from the floor with each and every chip that you’re feeding yourself.

Then along came PullClean. It’s a door handle with built-in sanitizer dispensers so you can sanitize your hand each time you pass by or leave the room. Before you write it off as being a mere dispenser, it comes with the Countclean software which takes note of sanitizing rates and the level of sanitizer left in the dispenser.

Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver Toothbrush

Doctor-Who-Sonic-Screwdriver-Toothbrush

This is the way the Doctor Who brushes his teeth. Well, okay, not so much on the way he does, but what he uses to, anyway. His Sonic Screwdriver is many things–a lock pick, a remote controller, a tracker, even a medical scanner. It’s probably the most-coveted multi-tool ever known to man, although it’s fictional in existence– and now you can own one of your very own!

It can’t exactly do what the Doctor’s can, but the Sonic Screwdriver toothbrush will make sure that your pearly whites stay white with regular brushing.

Fresh Air Plus Does Away With Nasty Smells After You Do a Number Two

Fresh Air Plus

There’s nothing pleasant about poop. Not it’s smell, not it’s appearance, not it’s texture–nothing. There’s little you can do about most of these without having to change your diet, save for the smell, because you can actually minimize it (well, sort of) if you get one of these Fresh Air Plus units. It’s basically a fan that’s specially designed to fit your toilet bowl.

When you sit on it, a sensor triggers the unit’s fan to turn on, which subsequently filters out the nasty smells of poop through a hose and out of the bowl. This way, the smell won’t overwhelm your senses by the time you’re ready to flush.

Smart Toilet Paper Holder Sends You ‘Low TP’ Alerts

Smart Toilet Paper Holder

 

Nothing sucks more than looking up to realize that you’ve only got a few squares of TP left after doing a massive number 2. The RollScout aims to save the day, though, by alerting people in the household when the toilet paper levels are in a dangerously low level. If you missed the alert on your smartphone, then the RollScout’s blinking LED light will remind you of that fact so you can replace the old roll before doing your thing.

The RollScout can run on a single A23 battery for an entire year, so maintaining it shouldn’t be a pain at all. Aside from home use, it’s ideal for businesses who don’t want to turn patrons off for the lack of fresh TP.

The RollScout is up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $49 will get you one of your very own.

Want, Need, Now: Water Draining Soap Holder

Water Draining Soap Holder

 

Looking for a way to increase the useful life of that bar of soap? Not that it’s a big deal or anything, but goopy soap is a huge pet peeve. Aside from, well, wasting good soap, it also makes washing your hands a difficult process. Unfortunately, it doesn’t make sense to dry the bar after every use (can you even imagine doing that?)

But here’s a bit of good news: a soap holder which does just that for you exists. The Water Draining Soap Holder basically drains away the excess water from the soap so it doesn’t slowly melt away in the holder.

One first world problem, solved. It’s available online for $5.25.

This’ll Scare the Crap Out of You: Horror Story Toilet Paper

Horror Story Toilet Paper

Done reading all of the books and comics you’ve stashed in the bathroom? Then here’s one bathroom reader that might just literally scare the crap out of you: the Horror Story toilet paper roll. Sorry if that was a bit too graphic for you, but I just couldn’t resist. This is basically a roll of toilet paper with a scarier-than-though story printed on it.

The horrific tales are penned by Koji Suzuki, who’s known for writing the “Ring” and “Spiral” series. They’re sold in sets of three, with each one featuring a different story.

They’re available online for £9.99 (or about $17.)

Happy Poo Happily Takes the Place of Your Plunger

Happy Poo

It happens every so often to each and every human being around the planet. After taking a particularly large (and satisfying) dump, the toilet decides that it’s way too big for it to handle and before you know it, the entire thing is clogged. If you’re not a huge fan of the plunger–I mean, who is?–then here’s an alternative for you: the Happy Poo.

It’s a disposable seat cover of sorts that attempts to let you “re-flush” the toilet when it’s clogged without having to use a plunger. Just peel it off from the protective backing, make sure it’s attached all around to the seat, flushed, and press down.

It’s Crap-tastic!: ‘Developing Your Decor’ Photo Toilet Tissue

Developing Your Decor Toilet Paper

Here’s the perfect pair to the that Polaroid-inspired toilet paper holder that was so popular among fans of instant photography: the Developing Your Decor Photo Toilet Tissue paper. Each square has a vintage-looking image printed on it–kind of like the pictures you get from a Polaroid or an Instax. You probably wouldn’t use this to wipe your bottom because it might seem like such a waste, but hey, you only live once and who else can say they’ve wiped their bottoms with such a classic roll?

Pair it with the Polaroid Toilet Paper Holder for some instant awesomeness.
