Mouth Watchers Travel Toothbrush Review: A Toothbrush That Kills Germs

The Mouth Watchers Travel Toothbrush, which folds for easy packing, has soft bristles featuring silver technology designed to kill bacteria.

Mouth Watchers Travel Toothbrush Review:

Price and Where to Buy: The Mouth Watchers Travel Toothbrush is available at the Mouth Watchers site for $5.99 (for a single toothbrush) or at Amazon for $9.99 (for a set of two).

How the Mouth Watchers Travel Toothbrush Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. There are few more essential items on your packing list than a toothbrush, and the fact that this one folds to protect the bristles makes it particularly handy for travelers. The antimicrobial technology, which keeps bacteria from building up between uses, is a nice plus—especially since many travelers go weeks or months between trips.
  • Value: 9/10. It’s a little more expensive than a run-of-the-mill toothbrush you might pick up at Walmart, but the folding function and antimicrobial features make it worth the slight extra cost.
  • Portability: 10/10. The toothbrush weighs less than two ounces and folds up small enough to fit into just about any little cranny of your toiletry bag.
  • Durability: 9/10. The soft bristles may feel fragile, but they’re made of a polyester material that’s designed to be sturdy.
  • Cool Factor: 8/10. A toothbrush is too prosaic an item to be truly cool, but Mouth Watchers’ extra-long, extra-thin bristles—designed to reach spaces other toothbrushes can’t—are pretty nifty.

Final Verdict: The Mouth Watchers Travel Toothbrush is an affordable and practical addition to any travel packing list.
