Battery-Powered Toothbrush for Under $20


The Colgate-Palmolive Company has introduced a battery-powered toothbrush that is ideal to take on vacation since you donít need to worry about cords or power packs. The Colgate Actibrush ($19.99) comes with two AA batteries which Colgate says provide enough power for approximately three months of brushing. The battery pack is waterproof and the AA batteries can be replaced as needed.

The Actibrush head oscillates over 8,000 times per minute, allowing the brush to remove more plaque than an ordinary manual toothbrush. The small, round compact head also has soft cup-shaped bristles designed to help clean individual teeth.

Available at mass merchandisers, food chains, and drug chains nationwide.
