Nihilist Toothpaste: No Flavor, No Color, Nothing–Just Paste

Nihilist Toothpaste

Toothpaste is available in all sorts of flavors, colors, and varieties these days. Heck, they’re not just limited to paste, either, because liquid and gel toothpastes exist now. However, if you’re not a fan of blue, green, or tri-colored toothpastes that sometimes comes with flecks of “cooling crystals” or whitening strips, then you might want to check out Accoutrements’ Nihilist toothpaste.

It’s toothpaste the way toothpaste should be. It’s got no flavor, no color, no thing–just plain old white paste in minimalist packaging.

Stick ‘Em Magnetic Towels: Feel Free to Stick ‘Em Up

Magnetic Towel

Towels. You need them but you might not necessarily have space for them in your kitchen. Getting some of those stick-on plastic hooks is one option, but imagine what a pain it’s going to be if you remove them and peel off a layer of pain with it. You could  hang them around your refrigerator handles, but then you have to be prepared to pick them up from the floor a lot because that’s where they’ll usually be after a few people walk past the fridge and inadvertently brush past it, causing it to slide to the floor.

And then there’s the Stick ‘Em Magnetic Towels, which seems like the most logical solution of the bunch.

Morninghead Gets Rid of Bed Head in Seconds

Morninghead

You know how your hair sticks up in bunches and random angles when you get out of bed? It’s called bed head and it’s pretty unsightly, especially if you’re heading out in a few and don’t have the time to wash your hair again. Most people just turn on the tap and put their heads under it as a quick fix. Others sprinkle water all over their crowns in an attempt to pat down stray strands.

But there’s an easier way: just get the Morninghead.

Smart Bracelet Lets Doctors Know If They’re Washing Their Hands Correctly

IntelligentM Bracelet

Hygiene is important, but it becomes an even bigger deal when you’re in the healthcare industry. Even then, you have to remember that doctors are human, too, and they sometimes fail to wash their hands as thoroughly as they should, especially when they’re in a rush. That’s where the IntelligentM bracelet comes in.

It’s a smart bracelet that vibrates when its wearer has washed his or her hands sufficiently.

Dry Hands Lets You Wash Then Dry Your Hands At Once For Added Convenience

Dry Hand

Washing your hands in a public place is usually a two-step process. The first is the actual handwashing proess itself, while the second involves either a paper towel or an electronic hand dryer to dry your hands up. Combining both and turning this everyday task into a one-step action is the Dry Hand, which is a faucet and dryer in one.

Tongue2Teeth Mouth Accessory Lets You Clean Your Teeth With Your Tongue

Tongue-Toothbrush

Ever run your tongue over your teeth after not brushing them for a day? It’s pretty gross. But what if instead of grossing yourself out, you could clean them, discreetly, while doing just that? The Tongue2Teeth hygiene product is a tooth cleaning product that slips over part of your tongue, and allows you to get at least somewhat clean while on the go. The product has a coating that kills bacteria, as well as freshens your breath and whitens your teeth. The bristles presumably do a little mechanical abrasion to remove some of the harder deposits as well, though we really think you shouldn’t use this as a replacement for a full toothbrush.

There’s no word on pricing or availability, but you can sign up on their website to be notified of when they’ll be on shelves.

Shittens Are Mittens For Wiping Bums

shittens-mittens-toilet-paper

The human race can be a pretty sad lot if in the year 2013 a product like the Shittens needs to be invented. It’s a set of disposable mittens made from hygienic wipe tissue, and lined with anti-bacterial agents. They can be used to wipe your own behind and make sure you get no doodoo on your fingers, or better yet, to wipe the bum of a baby. Which makes more sense than to assume it’s for yourself. Because, really… everyone can wipe their own bums without getting poo on their hands, right? Everyone.

But to be honest, we’re not sure this is a real product. It’s an IndieGogo campaign, and reading through it, it looks like a joke. Heck, it even seems to have gotten its start on the Howard Stern show with Mark Cuban in attendance. Still, we can’t be sure. It’s just crazy enough to work.

ManHands Manly-Scented Soaps: Because All You Need to Be a Man is to Smell Like One

Man Soap

Remember that song that went something like, “Walk like a man, talk like a man…” by the Four Seasons? They should’ve added something about smelling like man, because apparently, all you have to do to be a man is smell like one. That is, if the promo people behind ManHands line of manly-scented soaps for men are to be believed.

They do have a point. With all the floral and perfume-scented bars of soap in the market, a guy has to do a lot of searching to find one that won’t leave him smelling like a girl. The search is now over, though, because ManHands has got every guy on the planet covered. I’m just not sure if guys will actually want to use the soaps in their novelty-like line, which includes scents like beer, bacon, muscle rub, and urinal mint.

ManScaping 101: The Selective Hair Trimmer

This is a quandary that the more appearance-conscious men among us often face: to keep all body hair on and look like a small gorilla, or shave it all off and look like a pre-pubescent child? This is as polar a topic as the front/rear pocket wallet decision. Or the facial hair decision. Everyone’s got an opinion and few people agree. The Mudage Jolie Body Hair Remover hopes to split the difference and strike a compromise: simply pass it over the hairier parts of your body and it will only remove some hairs, not all. This way, you can have you cake and eat it too. You can keep enough hair to maintain a semblance of masculinity, but remove the excess that makes you look like you stepped out of the Planet of the Apes set.

Unfortunately, this is a Japanese product and is being imported through the always-overpriced JapanTrendShop. So it’ll cost ya $33.
