MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
If you have kids or a sloppy spouse that seems to get toothpaste on everything but the brush, the Touch N Brush may the answer to your troubles. The premise: dispense the perfect amount of toothpaste...without the mess.
Now we know it's not that difficult to squeeze some toothpaste onto a brush, but it can be a bit messy from time to time. The Touch N Brush dispenser is designed to alleviate the mess and the need to screw on a cap. It also claims to eliminate waste by squeezing out every usable bit of paste. We decided to focus on its ability to dispense the right amount of toothpaste without the mess for this test.
Installation of the unit comes first. The guts of the unit utilize two suction cups to adhere to any non-porous surface. We use a mirror. Then, sliding the toothpaste into the base of the unit comes next, which requires only a simple downward motion. My first time around proves that too much pressure makes a bit of a mess. Luckily, the plastic dispenser detaches for cleaning. Finally, the white cover slides over the unit and I'm ready to dispense.
The Touch N Brush successfully delivers a strip of paste with a simple push, leaving only a small bleed over on the dispenser. After removing the cover, a different tube of toothpaste installs very quickly.
The messiest part of the entire process comes immediately upon adding and removing the tubes of paste. Otherwise, the unit delivers a fair amount of toothpaste to my brush on each pump. It may not be easier than a manual squeeze but the Touch N Brush pumps a YES for this week's "Does it Work?" test.
We purchased the Touch N Brush for under $20 at a local retailer. Our package came with a free sonic toothbrush.
