Toothbrush Company Vs. Toothbrush Holder Company

Thu Apr 29, 2004 6:20 am

Why are toothbrush manufacturers trying to put toothbrush holder manufacturers out of business?

I tried to buy a new toothbrush this afternoon. I have one of the metal toothbrush holders that attaches to the wall with the 4 toothbrush spots and the cupholder in the middle.

Now, there is just a certain size toothbrush stem that can fit into the holder. Alas, none of the toothbrush stems are small enough to fit! They are all too fat! How the hell am I supposed to store my toothbrush without it coming in contact with bathroom surfaces? And why are these toothbrush companies going after the toothbrush holder companies? It's a chicken and egg type scenario.

I just want one of the traditional flat-stemmed toothbrushes, not some silver, blue and gold one that looks like the latest pair of ghetto basketball shoes, has a stem in the shape of JLo's backside, costs 10 fucking dollars and has bristles in the shape of the Taj Mahal.

Dear WellHung -
472 postings but only 6 in the aviation-related forums? I think you need to get a life (or at least find a more suitable fourm for your interests).

Glad to know you got over the truck debacle and moved onto more serious issues.

You shouldn't have your toothbrush in a holder anyway--it should be in a case or drawer away from the toilet area.

Fecal bacteria can travel over twenty feet with the lid open...ten feet with the lid closed when you flush. Want that on your toothbrush? Didn't think so.

I am proud to say that my toothbrush is too big for most toothbrush holders, I may be an old man but I like to use my toothbrush as often as possible and bathroom surfaces are one of my favorite places to use my toothbrush

Well, I have a motorized toothbrush that is waayyy too big for the holder, but that is too be expected since there are electronics in there. That is kept in a medicine cabinet and is what I use most often. I was aware of the fecal bacteria threat and I close my lid when I flush. That 10 foot number sounds a little exaggerated, however, unless it's one of those real ass-blaster diarrhea shits that explodes out the ass like gunpowder. The toothbrush stored in the holder is for the quick "brush and go" when I'm in a hurry. Those toothbrush cases are way too summer camp for me. I guess I'll either have to find a retailer who still has old stock of the holder-friendly toothbrushes or go exclusively to the motorized.

Yeah, right. Toothbrushes are supposed to be stored in holders, not drinking vessels.

Why don't ya just do like what our fore-fathers used to do - Chew on a piece of tree bark ;-]

Sorry, man... Nothing personal. That one just kinda seeped out  Laugh out loud
But yeah - I hear ya. I've observed the holes are either too small or too big. It's like the toothbrush holder manufactures can't keep up with the marketing gurus at the toothbrush manufacturing companies. Guess folks will just have to take measurements of their toothbrushes before re-modeling their bathrooms.
As a side, it's been discussed in health journals that keeping your toothbrush out of sight is more sanitary and healthy... For a few reasons.

Nevermind political correctness - Envision using your turn signals!

To be honest, I think the problem is that consumers in general are too stupid to realize that the toothbrush won't fit in their holder when they buy it, so they are forced to buy another one that will fit once they realize the problem. It's pure profit for the toothbrush manufacturers.

Anymore, most folks have a SonicCare or similiar if they are concerned about keeping their teeth in top shape.
I dont' know of anybody that still buys them at the supermarket or drugstore.

If you get one of the sonic ones..they come in their own nice little travel case....

Buy it from your dentist. They get great deals on them.
