Brush-and-rinse creates adventure from the routine
Call it ingenuity, call it inventiveness – but this product from New York based inventor Scott Amron certainly deserves mention.
Apparently what propelled him into action was the fact that current methods of getting water into our mouths for rinsing after brushing are sloppy, create waste and place unnecessary stress on our bodies. The result? The award-winning (Reddot Design Award 2007) brush-and-rinse toothbrush that eliminates the need to use rinse-cups or your hands to rinse your mouth. The idea is elegant – when you place the toothbrush under a faucet, it simply redirects the water from the faucet in a perfectly parabolic angle similar to a water fountain. Well, I am amazed that a simple modification can transform an ordinary product into such an interesting innovation.
The nifty little toothbrush is available from the Amron site at $3 a piece.
