Colgate Wisp – brilliant little travel companion

If there is one good thing that has come out of the stricter rules for toiletries, it is that manufacturers have been releasing new travel friendly products faster than ever.

My local drug store now has an entire aisle devoted to small travel size products, and they seem to be adding something new every week.

The latest new addition comes from Colgate, and is called “Wisp”.

This single use toothbrush beats all the previous contraptions I’ve ever tried. The Wisp is a plastic toothbrush with a tiny capsule of toothpaste between the bristles.

When you brush, you open the capsule and you’ll be able to use it like any ordinary toothbrush. You don’t need water to activate it, and you don’t need to rinse after brushing.

The product should be on shelves of your own drug store, as well as at most Walmart stores and

A pack of 12 costs $8.50, or 2 packs of 12 for $14. Most local stores will sell packs of 4 for about $3.50. A 50 cent discount coupon can be found on the product site.

It may be much more expensive than a toothbrush and pocket tube of toothpaste, but it can’t hurt to carry a couple of them in your carry-on.
