I was in Boots the chemist this lunch time and I'd just got to the checkout with my sandwich and bag of crisps when, out of the corner of my eye, I spotted some kind of toothbrush promotion.
"Oooh," thought I. "I need a new toothbrush."
3 x Better Cleaning Action, said the blurb on the front of the toothbrush, VIBRATES. 3 Heads in 1
I looked at the price. £3 something. Bargain.
I grabbed it, paid for it and left.
Tonight I read the back of the packet to find out exactly how this vibrating business would help me clean my teeth.
Would it make them cleaner?
Get into all the nooks and crevices?
According to the advertisin gobbledegook the gently vibrating bristles would help...
"support your usual cleaning movements"
How does vibration support my usual cleaning movements? When I clean my teeth I move my hand up and down and side to side. Is the vibrating toothbrush going to prop up my arm for me? Move my hand around a bit? Cheer as I brush?
I think I've been had.
