Crest(R) SPINBRUSH(R) Oral Hygiene Survey Reveals "Nothin' but the Tooth"
Date:4/29/2008

Clean Underwear Less Important on Overnight Trip Than Having Own Toothbrush

PRINCETON, N.J., April 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- At what point (if ever) in a relationship do men and women feel comfortable sharing their toothbrush with each other?

That's not surprising, since SPINBRUSH(R) Pro-Series(TM) power brushes remove up to 70% more plaque in hard to reach places than manual brushes.

Clean Freak

Nearly 85 percent of respondents are so obsessed with clean teeth that they have been known to keep extra toothbrushes on hand just about everywhere: from their purse or briefcase (24 percent), to their office (20 percent), as well as their car (18 percent).

"Lost" Without Their Toothbrush

If they were stuck on a deserted island, almost half of Americans (48 percent) said having their toot
