The toothpaste dispenser has been around for some time and has steadily become more popular in homes around the country. The devices work by releasing toothpaste directly onto a toothbrush automatically and is controlled usually by pressing a button or even using an automatic sensor. Not only a cool gadget for the bathroom, the device does not require opening or squeezing of tubes and helps reduce usage as more of the toothpaste is used, correct amounts are applied to brushes and spillage is reduced.
If you decide upon buying an automatic toothpaste dispenser there are certain features you should consider when making your decision. Firstly you should take care to pick a design which will complement the decor of your bathroom, most models are made of plastic although stainless steel designs are also available. Additionally some designs are meant to be kept on bathroom counter tops whereas others may be attached to walls, tiles or mirrors via suction pads or sticky strips.
The bestselling model of toothpaste dispenser at the moment is known as ‘Touch N Brush’ and can be purchased for as little as $10 from some retailers. This particular model is often found advertised on television and is easy to set up as well as refill and requires just the touch of a button to dispense the perfect amount of toothpaste. The ‘Touch N Brush’ claims to use ‘vacuum force technology’ so that no batteries are required for the device to work.
Having a fun gadget such as an automatic toothpaste dispenser in the bathroom can be a useful tool when persuading reluctant younger children to brush their teeth. Also younger children may struggle with squeezing a tube onto a brush but can find it easier when using a dispenser (and make much less of a mess).
As with any product there are also some disadvantages. Some customer reviews have argued that in some models the pumps can leak toothpaste causing wastage and mess, whereas some may allow the toothpaste to dry out which can prevent them from working and also cause wastage. It is a good idea to check out some reviews either in magazines or online in order to make sure that the model you are looking to buy is reliable.
