Oral B Toothbrush Heads

oral b toothbrush headsYou can pay good money for Oral B toothbrush heads or you can go with a non-Oral B, compatible brand and save good money. Which is the way to go? That is the question I will answer in this review.

Oral B Toothbrush Heads Versus Compatible Brand

Do the Math

I absolutely love our Oral B Professional Care toothbrush. What I didn’t like was paying so much for the genuine-brand, Oral B toothbrush heads. We’ve been paying about $40.00 for an 8-Pack of the genuine, Oral B Toothbrush heads brand at Costco. Some quick division (40 / 8) reveals that we are paying $5.00 for just one, little toothbrush head. Even name-brand toothbrushes are less than $2.00 each at your grocery or department store. Actually, you can buy regular toothbrushes on Amazon for 0.73 cents each. So, I think we can agree the profit mark-up must be pretty high on all toothbrushes, whether they are for the Oral B electric or just not. Granted, the Oral B toothbrush head has a little more complexity to it due to the mechanics required by the electric, toothbrush motor. Still $5.00 is too much for a toothbrush that really should be replaced every month. I got to thinking, there has to be a cheaper brush and I was right. At Amazon, you can buy an entire 20-Pack of Oral B Compatible Toothbrushes for around $15.00. Doing the math once again ($15.00 /20), That comes out to just $0.75 cents per toothbrush head! That represents a savings of over 650% ($5.00 /$0 .75) . Yes, the generic Oral-B heads from Amazon are less than 1/6th the price of the genuine toothbrush heads. That kind of savings is worth looking into. The next question is, are they as good as the real thing?

BPA Free Water Bottles

BPA Free Water BottlesBPA free water bottles have come into high demand due to a certain industrial chemical in plastics called, bisphenol. This chemical has been highly used in the last 60 years or so since the manufacturing of plastics and use of resins took-off worldwide.  The number one risk of course is cancer. Whether or not that risk is real is secondary to the idea that most of us will do everything practically possible to reduce our chances of getting cancer. On top of that, our mobile, on-the-go society seemed to gain a new appreciation for carrying around water in plastic bottles.  As a classroom teacher, I like to have a 32oz bottle of water with me at all times, so I was willing to pay a little more and get a higher quality water bottle by Contigo .  Now, the latest ‘health-experts’ say that even BPA Free water bottles are not completely safe. Apparently, there are other toxic chemicals that can leach to our food that is just as dangerous as bisphenol. I won’t get overly obsessed with this because it is impractical to avoid all plastics. I only keep water in my bottle and it stays out of the hot sun and microwave. What I am more concerned with is comparing my latest BPA free water bottle purchase, the Pogo 32oz.

Panasonic Nose Hair Trimmer

Panasonic Nose Hair Trimmer Reviewed

panasonic nose hair trimmerThis is one of those products that you must have once you find out how cheap and useful it is. The Panasonic Nose Hair trimmer can be purchased for just slightly under $10.00.  When I purchased the Old Spice Shaver, the one thing I immediately realized I was missing from my Wahl Groom Kit was the nose-hair and ear-grooming attachment. This handy little device made it easy to keep the nose and ears groomed. Thankfully, I didn’t have to pay an arm and a leg to replace what I was missing.

Old Spice Shaver

Old Spice Shaver

Old Spice ShaverThe Old Spice Shaver for men is an electric, cordless shaver made by Braun. In the last few years, I’ve feverishly searched for a cordless, electric razor that is versatile enough to trim both a short beard and also maintain a close shave. I’ve tried two other Wahl Razors and both of them conked out after a few months of use. Also, I didn’t care for the flimsy attachments that were a nuisance to take on and off.  What sold me on trying the Old Spice Shaver was the fact that it is advertised as both an electric razor for a close shave and also a beard trimmer. Surprisingly, it is not so easy to find a mens electric razor that does both and does them well. The problem with the numerous electric razors that I’ve looked at is that they require numerous attachments for trimming the beard which keeps a fairly good sized mess on your bathroom counter. When I looked at the Old Spice Shaver reviews on Amazon, I quickly saw that it comes with only two attachments.

Oral B Professional Care 2000 is a dual-handle, rechargeable, electrical toothbrush designed to remove more plaque, and polish teeth significantly better than the hand-brush method. On the box, the claim is printed that the Oral B 2000 will remove up to 5x or 400% more plaque along your gum-line than the conventional toothbrushing method. Having personally used the Oral-B Electric Toothbrushes for a few days now, that claim is very believable.

Performance

The latest Oral-B is nothing like your father’s electric toothbrush that merely vibrated quickly against your teeth. I was very skeptical about investing in an electrical toothbrush based on my past experiences with them generations ago. I was pleasantly surprised. The Oral B Professional Care 2000 brush oscillates, rotates, and pulsates at a surprisingly high and powerful RPM. Because the rotating brush is so powerful, it allows you to get to the back and inside of your teeth and gums effortlessly. The power of this toothbrush feels very similar to the polishing equipment used during teeth-cleaning visit to your dentist. I am apt to believe the claim this unit removes up to 5x more plaque. I can feel the difference around my teeth and gums. After one, single-use, I felt as though I had just been to the dentist for a complete teeth-cleaning.
