Every once in awhile, you discover a new product, and cannot understand how you lived without it before. (You also wish you had invented it yourself, because then you would get to be a gazillionaire, and that sounds fun.)
Until now, my toothbrush/toothpaste situation has – like yours, I assume – been a total disaster. Between the four of us we have something like 30 different toothbrushes, all in various stages of disrepair. All of them are neon, with fussy little rubber finger-pads or elaborate chargers or pictures of Paw Patrol dogs on them. Our toothpaste tubes – we have four at the moment, and all of them are mostly empty – are all sort of jammed into and around the toothbrush holder in a big, sticky, the-cap-won’t-go-on-anymore-because-it’s-too-gunky mess. It’s gross.
In short: If you’re anything like me, no matter how pretty your bathroom is, your toothbrush situation messes it up.
Which brings me to the new product that I don’t know how I lived without, and a product that seriously, guys, I’m going to insist that you get: a quip toothbrush. You will love it.

The way they look probably already sold you – no neon! No rubber finger-pad things! No cartoon dogs! – but that’s only a tiny fraction of why you need to own a quip brush. Allow me to explain.
The theory behind quip is that they give you everything you need to take care of your teeth, and nothing that you don’t need.
- The vibration (which pulses every 30 seconds and shuts off at 2 minutes) is equivalent to the “sensitive” function on traditional vibrating brushes, making it safe for everyone. No excessive power, no unnecessary super-sonic blast modes: just the precise motion you need for a healthy mouth.
- The cover can be used when you travel with your brush, and can also be flipped around and stuck on the wall (!) – so you can toss the bulky toothbrush holder cluttering up your countertop.
- With a subscription, a new brush head is automatically delivered every three months, so you never have to think about whether your brush needs to be replaced. (You can also subscribe to have their toothpaste delivered every three months, and given that it’s effective, tastes great, and once again manages to look all cute and stylish even though it’s toothpaste, I strongly recommend that you do this.)
- Your brush is covered for the lifetime of your subscription, and you can test it out for 30 days before committing.
Oh AND. quip starts at just $25 for the brush, and the subscription is just $5 every three months to replace the brush head (and battery). With free international shipping.
I love it, and just ordered two more for my kids and signed up for a subscription myself (totally on my own and completely separate from this campaign), because it’s such a game-changer.
Between the price and the quality and the reduced environmental impact and the way they look sitting there in your bathroom all glamorous and fancy, I literally can think of no reason not to try quip.
