Did you know Monday/Toothbrushes


Ok since things are returning to normal that means this Monday you get did you know Monday with another fact out of Leo’s 1000 facts book, this weeks fact is this:

More people use blue toothbrushes than red ones

What colour is your toothbrush?

red toothbrush

Mine is usually pink so not blue but Tim always likes a blue one as does Leo.

We all now that toothbrushes are available with different bristle textures, sizes, and forms but did you know that most dentists recommend using a soft toothbrush since hard bristled toothbrushes can damage tooth enamel and irritate the gums.

Also did you know the first bristle toothbrush resembling the modern one was found in China dating back to the Tang Dynasty which is between 619-907 it consisted of hog bristles, just so you know.

  1. Y’know, I’ve never really given any thought to the color of my toothbrush, i had to go check. It’s green. The soft bristles I knew because my dentist tells me all the time that the hard can mess up the gums too. The hogs hair thing though, while it sounds kind of gross is pretty genius for someone to look at a hog and think, “I can shave that beast and use the hairs to clean my probably rotting teeth.”
