Morning nose brushing with vibrating toothbrush as part of hygienic routine = clean noses and looks funny in mirror = feels great and makes you laugh = twice as many brushes sold = windfall for companies.

Need to etablish health risk and detectability as well as grodyness quotionent of using one brush for both purposes.

Eliminate nose brushing once and for all. Bogey_20be_20gone

       Perhaps a single, Y-shaped brush would suffice.

       The brushes must be single-use, disposable ... otherwise the idea is too yucky for words.

       Or a continuous motorised loop, in mouth, out nose?

       Just to clarify... are we talking inside the nose, outside the nose, or both?

       How did grodie get out there?

       I'm thinking of toothbrushing as a negotiation between our and the body's own cleaning process and so I guess same goes for the nose, so inside.   

       Not brushing your nose for a lifetime is pretty grody, considering what happens when one dosent bathe for a couple of weeks.

       [JesusHChrist] Had an enema lately?

       Not lately, but I am not inviting the world into my anus every 5 seconds either... although...

       Jesus H Christ. Just this morning I was pondering the difference in eficiency that might exist between blowing your nose and using a qtip. The halfbakery even crossed my mind. No way you could specialty market qtips for that purpose, thought I. What if it's unpleasant I reasoned with myself sitting at the stoplight.   

       If it's motorized, you'll probably have half a million people buy just for that. Get the shamwow guy. You're brilliant.

       Why is the inside of your nose any more grody than the inside of your mouth?

       Well, would you French kiss someone's nose, ImGoingto...?

       Maybe if I had learned it was culturally acceptable from an early age. So it's a grody thought, but not necessarily more grody filthwise.

       Too yucky for words [+]
