Friday Favorites: The Orabrush

I had this stroke of brilliance idea the other day that it would be fun to occasionally feature a product I love on my blog on Fridays. I'm a strong supporter of innovation, so I try a LOT of stuff. There are some real doozies out there, to be sure, but I've also discovered some pretty nifty gadgets and gizmos that have improved my life greatly. So, why not share them with you all?

Several years ago, a colleague of mine became the spokesman for this new product, the Orabrush. The YouTube video went viral, and that's when I finally decided to check it out.

It's super-clever, so you can go ahead and enjoy it now if you haven't had the pleasure yet.

At the conclusion of the video, I was a believer. I immediately ordered two Orabrushes -- one for me, one for Dill --  and I have NEVER regretted that decision.

It's a simple little device with a handle like a toothbrush, and a square-ish pad comprised of bristles and a scraper. The idea is, you scrub your tongue for a bit with the brush part, and then drag the scraper down your tongue to remove what you just exfoliated from your tongue. Rinse it off and store it with your toothbrush.

The first time you use this thing, you will look at the brush and have a miniature heart attack. You will not be able to believe how much CRAP has been on your tongue all these years (yes, even you religious tongue-brushers). You will temporarily feel very ashamed at what you've just removed from your tongue, wondering how many scores of humans you've offended with your smelly breath.

And then, you'll feel empowered. You'll enjoy a "tasteless" mouth for the first time in who-knows-how-long. You'll go on to use the Orabrush day and night, never to fear the stench of your own mouth EVER again. You will kiss your significant other with carefree abandon (just make sure they get one, too).

The good news is, Orabrush has expanded since my original purchase, and you can now get them at most major drug stores. BUT, if you're an Amazon fiend like myself, you can get a 2-pack here.

And don't be fooled by other tongue-scrapers and brushes -- they just don't compare. You need the combination of brushing AND scraping for maximum breath-freshening capabilities.

I firmly believe every human should own one of these. Dentists should hand them out along with toothbrushes. Anecdote: my teeth kind of suck and, despite regular flossing and brushing, I get cavities pretty easily. Since using the Orabrush, though, I've seen a drastic improvement in my dental health. I actually have dental appointments where I don't need any fillings now! I believe it's in large part due to the Orabrush removing all that nasty bacteria from my tongue.

So, what are you waiting for? Get the clean mouth you've always dreamed of right now!

  1. Sold! Haha I'm a sucker for a good review from a trustworthy source. ;) Thanks for sharing!

    1. You won't regret it! The Orabrush changed my whole life, haha.

  2. Never even heard of it before! Totally awesome.

  3. Oh man! I bought one of these over the holidays at a Walgreens. When I found it I was super stoked and my husband was like, "that's probably a waste of money, but if you really want it..." Ha. I've only used it a handful of times because I forget it's there with my toothbrush, but I'm totally doing it tonight before bed. It is awesome.


I like feedback almost as much as I like food.
