"Used" Toothbrush

Fool Mommy into thinking you brush your teeth

Tired of wasting toothpaste, time, and energy brushing your teeth? Now you can convince your mommy you've been brushing without actually doing so! The "Used" toothbrush pack contains several of the "same" toothbrush, each showing a different level of use. Also contains a misleading usage indicator (i.e. the blue strip in the middle of some brushes that wears down over time). If not living at home, one-packs of over-used toothbrushes are also for sale.

Available in many popular shapes and sizes for use as a replacement brush.

BONUS: In an emergency (i.e. occasional brushing in front of mommy to ward off suspicion), it can also be used as a toothbrush.

       Parents don't examine toothbrushes for signs of wear. We have other tools at our disposal.

       Odd - I had an idea today that I was considering posting on this topic. I'm off to do so and will be back to link.

       I used to do all kinds of things to make it look like I brushed - wet the sink, wet the brush, squeeze toothpaste into a tissue and throw it out in a different wastebasket. I wish I could have bought this as a kid.
