Disposable mouth care

Posted in Product Review by nicolejanaye on March 7, 2010

I’m going all nerdled out, but these are possibly one of my favorite things to have. I have a 4 pack ALWAYS with me in my purse, backpack or car.

Wisps–> http://www.colgatewisp.com/wisp/HomePage

These are disposable toothbrushes. You don’t need water or toothpaste. Everything you need to clean your teeth and leave you with good smelling breath is located on the 3 1/2 inch brush. One side has the brush with “a built-in refreshing bead that releases minty freshness as you brush.” The other end is a soft pick for problem areas in between your teeth.

I especially love these because of my job. I work at Starucks and ocassionaly drink coffee. Coffee leaves you with bad breath and stains your teeth so I like to fix that as soon as possible. Normally you can’t clean your teeth until you get home, a couple hours after, and most likely you probably would have forgotten.

Also, I love going in the outdoors and wisps are perfect for backpacking and camping. I just got back from a backpacking trip and I used these to clean my teeth. They are small and easily disposable. You don’t need to find a water source or zip lock a brush and toothpaste.

It doesn’t take place of a toothbrush and toothpaste entirely but I think it does a great job of replicating it. It’s $2.39 for a 4 pack. You can get them pretty much anywhere.

I recommend them if you:

  • drink coffee
  • are in the outdoors
  • are always on the go
  • forget to brush your teeth

The company says that you can swallow the small amount of liquid residue it leaves in your mouth. It’s very small and not a harsh, foaming liquid that normally comes from toothpaste. I tend to spit out the residue but I’ve done both.

Wisps are designed for single time use.

What do you think? Have you tried them before? Deal or Dud?
