I run across a lot of stuff at Fog Horn but when I came across Colgate’s Wisp, I said to myself, man I wish I had a few of these in my pack.
Folks that spend a large part of their lives moving about the countryside know, all too well, that basics like shaves and haircuts, and oral hygiene become secondary considerations. I remember times where my mouth literally felt like grunge; it’s a crappy feeling but there’s not much that can be done – Enter Colgate’s Wisp.
This tooth-brush requires no water for brushing or rinsing. It comes pre-seeded with a breath freshener, and at the opposite end of the brush, there’s a pick that actually does a decent job at removing mild calculus.
The active ingredient is Capric/caprylic triglycerid, which is a medium chain triglyceride with an indefinite shelf life.
Wisp appears to have no anti-bacterial properties but if you fill a pint-sized bottle with water and then add a cap of Clorox bleach to it, you’ll have the best mouthwash that you’ll ever come across. The solution is a broad spectrum prophylaxis that will keep your mouth free from bacteria and your gums looking great.
Wisp is not intended to substitute a normal brushing regimen but if you just can’t get it done, this little brush will help you feel like you’re alive again.
