I thought I would do a follow up review of my bamboo toothbrush, in case any of you thought it had fallen to splinters in my mouth or something.
So this is my toothbrush after 3 months of use. The old one is the top one, with my new one below for comparison. As you can see, the bristles are a little bent, but overall it held up well. The bristles had softened quite a lot by the end of the 3 months, but the handle was still fine, if stained a little white by toothpaste. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be white with toothpaste if I washed it, but I'm also pretty sure that life's too short to wash your toothbrush.
I was looking forward to putting my old bamboo toothbrush in the compost bin, but then I realised I could use it to clean round taps and things (am I a domestic goddess or what!?), so it's into the cleaning cupboard with it for now.
My bamboo toothbrush was £2.50 and came from Ebay.
All in all a great success, I am converted.
