    The OHSO Travel toothbrush.

    Now available in the Forum Store!! >> OHSO Toothbrush. << Woohoo!!

    [​IMG]

    Filling is pretty easy. When you unscrew the brush from the body you'll see a thin membrane with a hole in it.

    [​IMG]

    There is an adapter for these kinds of tubes of paste, but it will require cleaning when you're done. (also came with 3 extra heads, which feel like medium or hard bristles)

    [​IMG]

    All you have to do is connect the tube and turn the gray knob on bottom of the housing counter clockwise to fill the body...Though even when I squeezed the tube it didn't fill very well.

    [​IMG]

    I prefer the ones that can screw right on. Works every time:) Of course it doesn't hurt to help it out of the tube a little:D

    [​IMG]

    When you turn the bottom end clockwise it squirts it right where it needs to be. I have found that gravity helps it go on the brush a little better by pointing it down when applying the paste.

    [​IMG]

    The cap even has some holes for ventilation...so it dries without coming in contact with your bag:)

    [​IMG]

    Overall, I like it and it keeps me from having to apply paste from the tube to the brush, thereby cutting down on time and the amount of stuff I have to fiddle with just to brush my teeth:D

    Special thanks to whomever it was who showed me this on the Forum once upon a time:)

    Not sure. A couple of the Amazon options included the brush without the extra heads. I got the one with the extra three. I think there were options for the brushes alone, but don't remember different brush types.

    Never seen this before, but just researched a little bit. Replacement bristles are available from their site (goohso.com).

    I paid 19.95 USD. I think I got shipping free as it was part of a larger order, too.
    But if its worth it to you, its worth it, right?
    In fact, I would think, that having a US Member purchase and ship to you would cost almost the same thing. Maybe it would save you a few bucks, but it may be worth saving the hassle of reshipping and buying insurance to cover it in case it got lost.

    I had one of those several years ago. I'm not sure what happened to it. I might have to get another one.

    I really liked the concept, but I found it a little too short to brush effectively. Also it seems pretty hard to clean the reservoir effectively.

    Well i brought one last night on the forum store Thanks to SAKplumbers review and rave. I think it will be perfect for me at work. easy carry work in air conditioned workplace, so breath is always a bit of a worry plus have close personal contact with patients and collegues. so this will be the GO.
