What happened to plain old toothbrushes?

A toothbrush should be something you give little thought to. You know, you brush your teeth at least twice a day, change to a new toothbrush ever 2 or 3 months. . . what more is there than that??? A few times a year I buy one or two new ones so that I always have at least a couple of new ones on hand.

Imagine my shock when I was in BJs recently looking at toothbrushes. What have they done to the lowly toothbrush? What was labeled as toothbrushes looked more like something out of a bad dream. A grotesque, twisted, multi-colored handle with U-shaped layers of bristles. Or even worse, I saw some that were actually thick plastic bristles.

Thinking maybe BJs buys in bulk for what doesn't sell in mainstream stores, I then went to Wegmans. . . for those of you outside the Wegmans market area, Wegmans is the ONLY place to shop for groceries - maybe I'll do a post on them sometime! Same products there.

Now I am starting to get irritated. All I want is a plain FLAT TOP bristle toothbrush with a handle that doesn't look like it was bent out of shape in the parking lot.

I checked my supply of new toothbrushes. I have three that are "proper toothbrushes" so I have time to scour the marketplace.

Meantime, if any of you know which stores sell my kind of toothbrushes, please let me know!

  1. Give 'em heck, Sherry! I feel your pain. Why oh why can't I replenish my supplies of normal everyday ordinary things?
