I am very happy with my purchase of these bamboo toothbrushes. Not only do I feel better about using no plastic they perform much better than my regular toothbrush. I always buy soft bristle brushes and these are very similar in softness to my old ones yet seem to clean much better. They dry very quickly! Usually my toothbrush is still a bit wet by the time I use it again and always was concerned about bacteria but these dry very fast and were bone dry by the next use. Feels a bit funny at first the wood in your mouth but you quickly get used to it. Every toothbrush was packaged individually and had a unique symbol so there is not confusion when many people use them. Best of all everything that the toothbrushes were packed in was eco friendly, no landfill waste! They are priced very reasonably and considering the amount you get there is no reason to buy plastic ones anymore.
