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?

Best Cocktail Shaker

best cocktail shakerThe best cocktail shaker should be able to make your martini ice cold without giving your hands and fingers a case of frostbite.  The typical martini shaker is stainless steel. Stainless steel is a great temperature conductor and is perfectly suited for making your drink super cold very quickly. The problem, however, is that you can only shake so long before you fingers and hands are so ice cold that you can no longer hold on to the shaker. There is something to be said about stainless steel cocktail shakers. They give you the classic look, sound, and feel of a 1940’s bar where the sound of Martinis, Manhattans, Rob Roys and Cosmopolitans being shaken all around you make you feel important and sophisticated – and well, happy too. Is there any other way to make a classic cocktail? I’m here to tell you there is.

Best iPhone 8 Case

Best iPhone 8 CaseIt took me a matter of minutes to find the best iPhone 8 case to fit my own preferences. When I looked at the many ratings on Amazon, I realized that the number of stars didn’t matter as much as what people are actually saying about the case. iPhone users have a variety of needs and so the best iPhone 8 case for one person not might be the same as for another. This is true for all of the last generation of iPhone cases I’ve purchased.
