She says its prevented mess and toothpaste being spread around the bathroom
Who knew pre-pasted toothbrushes were even a thing?
We certainly didn't until today, when their existence was brought to our attention by a mum who's come under a lot of fire for buying them in bulk.
Her post extolling the virtues of using them comes at a time when there's increased awareness and scrutiny about our throwaway culture, and the harm it is doing to the environment.
Sharing a jubilant status to the group, Simply Moms, which was later shared on Twitter, the mum wrote:
"These are a must have in our household. Within this box is 144 PRE-PASTED TOOTHBRUSHES!!!!! So that means no more wasted toothpaste or a big mess to clean.
"Grab one pop out the wrapper, wet it, brush teeth and throw everything away."
The lady who later shared the post to Twitter added a couple of blistering captions.
"I commented that some people are so f*****g uneducated because her entire argument was 'it’s recyclable' please DO YOUR RESEARCH. Right now 300 MILLION TONS of plastic is produced annually and only 10% is recycled!!!!
"Con F*****G grats lady, you've proved you literally don’t give a F**K about the environment & you’re lazy as HELLZ."
She wasn't the only one to feel these toothbrushes are, on balance, a bad idea.
Another lady waded in with: "Orrrr focus on teaching your kiddos to try their best with the toothpaste and wipe up the mess if they do make one?
"What a waste to have in a household where the main concern is wasted toothpaste and messes."

That literally makes my brain hurt. The sheer laziness and wastefulness!
