Radius Toothbrush Review/Giveaway

I'm a bit obsessive about many things in my life, like making sure the tablecloth lines up just so, and the bed is made in the morning. I'm also a bit of a nut about my teeth, maybe because I dread the dentist and want to keep my visits there to a minimum. So I am borderline-compulsive about brushing and flossing everyday.

It's not often is my brushing ritual shaken up with something new, and in this case, a completely new kind of toothbrush, from a company called Radius.
These unique toothbrushes are made in the very same town that I live in, within a walking distance of my house. I only found out the company a few years ago when the roof was blown off the factory during a freak storm that no authority will admit was a mini-tornado.

But I digress. Before trying this toothbrush, I never considered that the brush head is awfully small, which can make it more difficult to clean the surfaces in your mouth. Radius toothbrushes are unique in that the brush head has 65% more bristle tufts than a typical toothbrush. When I brush with it, it's so much easier to clean your teeth and gums, and it's very soft on my mouth.

And it comes in so many cool colors! I love the design of the handle too.

I tried the Source toothbrush, which has replaceable heads and a recycled handle.
I have the toothbrush with the recycled wood fiber handle, but you can also get one made from recycled dollar bills or flax. The handle itself is ergonomic, which makes it very easy to hold, and you can switch the replaceable head to make it a left or right handed brush.

Rather than throwing the entire brush in the landfill when you're done with it, the Source toothbrush has replaceable heads, which result in 7% of the toothbrush being wasted as compared to 100% of ordinary toothbrushes.
This is honestly the best toothbrush I've ever used. It just feels that great in my mouth!

Radius also makes silk dental floss, which is actual silk with a beeswax coating.
I'll have to pick up some of that on one of my next walks. I'm obsessive about flossing, remember? I go through a lot of it, and how great to find out that there's an eco-friendlier option.

Radius would like to offer one winner...

  1. I have to admit, some of these have funky designs LOL.

    I would luv to try the Intelligent Toothbrush in the bright yellow color :)

    Thanks for introducing me to these products!!

  2. I think I would like to try the Source toothbrush with the flax handle. I've been wanting to get a more "eco-friendly" toothbrush, but it has been kind of low on the priority list. I also like that they are a local company...only about an hour from where I live which is awesome!

  3. I would love the Source toothbrush. Love the look and the idea of it being more eco-friendly.

  61. I like the big Radius toothbrushes and have used them for years. I always feel like I get my teeth really clean with them and they feel great on my gums. I've never tried the dental floss since my fave is Glide. Flossing with silk sounds right up my alley, though! I also had the replaceable head toothbrush, but hated it because it cracked right where you insert the replaceable brush, so I couldn't use it. It ended up in the landfill after all.

    ReplyDelete
  62. It's funny, I was just talking about toothbrush options with a friend last night!

    I like the Source toothbrush made with recycled wood the best, with soft bristles.
