Single-use toothbrush

has toothpaste in the handle.

Remove plastic packaging.
Squeeze handle - toothpaste finds its way onto bristles.
Apply water, brush teeth, spit.
Handy for those times when you didn't take a handbag big enough for your toothpaste and toothbrush. Or when the food at the restaurant was smellier than you expected. Can be sold in dispensers like tampons and condoms (but please don't get confused between them).

       if my idea makes money i wont forget you:)

       Is it a combination disposable toothbrush, condom, and tampon in one?

       Something close already exists. I bought one of these in a restaurant in Amsterdam... http://www.oxigenol.com/usaspazz.html ...and they work a treat!

       Another type of these were 'Dental dots'. My fiancee and I found them in a store once...little circles of adhesive backed terry cloth with dry toothpaste on them. Stick one to your fingertip and use...

       Exactly what the world and the environment need: even more trash.

       I'd like to see the toothpaste also act as an explosive so that after you finish brushing, you throw the brush away and it explodes!   

       Add a compact audio player and..."This toothbrush will self-destruct in five seconds....KABOOM!"

       Wait no more, I have been researching and developing BrushUps for the last three years. A few months ago I started marketing and they are already in conv. stores, dentists, hotels, hospitals, and all over the place throughout the U.S. Any Ideas where they would be useful? Check out the website www.brushups.com

       baked. I remember getting one of these things a few years ago. i think at K-mart, Wal-Mart or Target. It was intended to be used for traveling. I was a very cheap toothbrush, with a hole in the middle of the bristles for the toothpaste to come out from (with a plug thing you remove when you use it so that all of the paste doesn't come out wile it's in the store). The bottom of the handle was a squeesable plastic thingy with toothpaste in it. Very cheap toothpaste that has no mint flavor (good because I HATE mint; especially becuase it never leaves my mouth and makes soda taste horrible). It was kinda like one of those travel toothbrushes where you can pop the brush free from the handle and put the brush inside the handle for storage, but it is not meant to come apart. I did manage to open it up and refill it, although it refilled with that 2 part mentadent in the weird dispenser, so it ended up reacting with itself in the toothbrush and turned to a bubling mess. The toothbrush comes with enough toothpaste for several brushings, depending on how much you use. At least enough for a weekend trip; possible can be expanded to a full week if very little paste is used. then toss (or refill if very cheap). It's quite convenient to not have to mess with a toothbrush and toothpaste on vacation.

       Saw the despenser in the amsterdam airport two days ago. It's baked.

       baked at the dentist. They have dried toothpaste in the bristles that "reconstitutes" when wet.
