Got a Touch-N-Brush

I would have probably held out except for the fact that the flip cap on the toothpaste broke off and it was really annoying to deal with.

So as soon as this thing appeared in the As Seen On TV store I picked it up.

For those who don't know. Touch-n-brush is a one-handed toothpaste dispenser.
You just push
and presto, toothpaste on the brush.

And it works by creating vacuum suction so it's supposed to suck out all of the toothpaste in the tube. We'll see when we get there.

Hey, Jorge, just an off topic comment to let you know I beat Doctor Zombass! Thanks for letting me know about the game - it's made my week much more fun even if I haven't got much work done.

Angie said...

How is it? I was considering one for the kids bathroom, but I have these visions of piles of toothpaste on the counter under it after they pushed it 500x.

Erika Jean said...

Neat - if it's your own... gross if a family is using it. the heads of everyone's toothbrush touch the same spot during flu season? No thank you!

James Hernandez said...

Jorge,

Now that's the life of luxury! Don't have to mess with opening that darn toothpaste!

Joan Crawford said...

Thank God you told me what the hell that is, as I've never even heard of one before. If ever I had ran into one, I would've tapped it a few times and then regressed into grunting and slapping it. "Serve me, Machine!"

pgtbeauregardislost said...

I need one of those for my husband, he is constantly leaving the cap off of the tube, and it gets so ugly!

Abby said...

HA! As I was reading this the commercial for it was on! How fitting!

VENGA MONJAS said...

In catalan we call it RASPALL DE DENTS. To the tooth brush.

Scoutpost said...

I'm going to follow your progress on this- I've thought about buying one for the kids bathroom. I'm tired of all the toothpaste mess all over the counter and in the toothpaste cap. Of course someone else had a good point- they might get over zealous and press it 500 times. Anyway...let me know how it goes!

Suzie-Q said...

Thank God for your product testing. Otherwise how would I know what (not) to buy?!

Lisa said...

I want to know how clean it stays. Everytime I see the commercial I wonder how sanitary it is with everyones toothbrush touching the same spot over and over. Ugh.

milk and cookeez said...

My kids told me that they NEED this-I thought, more crap. Keep us posted on it's progress.
PS Please dont go into infomercials after LOST. :)

carmar76 said...

That is scary and neat at the same time!

Sara said...

Can my 4 year old come to your house to brush his teeth? Because he is dying for one of those! ;)

Goof said...

:D You find the coolest, and weirdest stuff sometimes.

(((((((HUGS))))))))

mabochda said...

I wish I had seen this when my aunt was alive. This would have been handy after her stroke. Let us know how it works- if it's good to the last drop :D

YELLOWDOG GRANNY said...

let me know when they have one for toilet paper..just stick your butt...oh never mind

Man said...

I would love one of these for crackers and cheese.

Poorpooland said...

WHEN DOES LOST START!!!???

Ii is said that this year is going to star later, almost in May because something related with Winter Sport, I don't know, I'm spanish, I don't know a shit about Winter Sport in EEUU, so I can't say if it's really true.

Answer me, please, my cat's life depends on that.

redelf said...

My kids would find someway to make it not work properly. They are really good at that.

Henry Wasserman said...

Looks good until it falls off the mirror.

marlamuppets said...

i so wanted to order that!
it came with a shiny gold one too - which cracked me up even more. the old people like to have gold accent touches on their bathrooms for some odd reason.

Ashlie-Mommycosm.com said...

That is WAY cool! My kids make a mess with toothpaste...might have to find one.

Christina Bauer said...

Hmm very interesting. I hope it gets all the toothpaste out in the end!

Also, you have gotten me addicted to Plants vs. Zombies...thanks :-)

Shannon said...

ooh I always wondered if those worked!! Keep us posted!

Holly said...

That looks cool. I hope it works out better than the upside down tomato growing thing.

Paul Spooner said...

What are you doing with your other hand...

Ikkin said...

does it actually stay stuck to the mirror?

Pam said...

That is both really neat and truly bizarre.

Arcticroses said...

Could you please let us know if it does work? I've been considering buying one because my daughter makes such a distorted squeezed mess of the toothpaste tube.

Irma said...

I've seen those, but it just seemed to me the dispenser would get all goopy and gross. Let us know!

Rafal M said...

Waste of money ;)

Val said...

You are cracking me up! I love reading your post!

Miss Scarlett said...

You slay me!

Julianna said...

my 6 year old just told me he had a great plan to keep from getting toothpaste all over the tube. he described this exact thing. i guess he saw the commercials. first, we both go to costa rica within a week of each other and now the toothpaste thing too... creepy! :0)

Breanne said...

My son totally wants one of those. I think they're a great idea. I'm glad that it really works :)

Michelle said...

I was wondering who in the world would buy one of those...

Lisa said...

Can't wait for your review and VERY happy to hear that they are showing up at the As Seen On TV Stores. If it works, I desperately need 1 for the kids, because I am SICK of scrubbing the toothpaste off the counters.

E.B. said...

I totally have to get this for my kids, who make a hot mess of toothpaste. It looks like it could help! Thanks Jorge!

ashley said...

Jorge, no! ewww. All of the germs on your toothbrush will touch the plastic dispenser which will then touch Bethany's toothbrush.

Although I'm sure she has been exposed to your germs before, getting the ones directly off of your toothbrush is disturbing. On behalf of girlfriends, please no. :)

nollyposh said...

Gi said...

My kid has been pestering me to buy one of these since the ads started running on Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. I'll await your final review before purchase (and will totally blame you if I buy it and my kid makes a mess, btw.)

Kristianna said...

Boooooo to the spammer in the few comments above!

Jorge, I wait with anticipation to hear hour the dispenser is working for you. I need this for my family, as my kids seem to manage to smear toothpaste ALL over every morning and night, and not even on purpose. :) And to those who 'ew' over sharing germs... well, we kiss each other anyway, right? So sharing germs is less of a worry than toothpaste covering 20 square feet of bathroom twice daily! Ha!

Have you finished the tube yet?
