Sainsburys Basics Toothbrushes - 10p for two....

Found 31st Jan 2010Made hot 31st Jan 2010
I'm almost embarrassed to list thisbut the other day in the Camberley branch of Sainburys, I noticed that you can now get toothbrushes in the Sainburys Basics range. A packet of two costs a measly ten pence! I got them home and tested them out and they work fine. They only come in white but what's wrong with white?

To be honest, as an engineer, I've always thought that these bendy-wendy, multi-tuffed, multi-coloured things that Oral B tries to flog you at three quid a pop do nothing over and about what you can do with a basic toothbrush. So why pay more?

If you are tempted buy these, buy ten packets as in my experience, some of the better Sainsburys Basics deals disappear off the shelves never to return.

they are always available at Sainsburys near me, I use them to clean my trainers, they are also good as disposable travel brushes, or even just well brushing.

the idea of using these has toothbrushes makes me feel sick i can imagine all bristles falling out while brushing.

good for cleaning around toilet and between tiles

Yeah - great for cleaning. Hot

At the end of the day a toothbrush is a toothbrush. Its only the village idiots that get sucked into all the jargon of buying way over the odds toothbrushes - they're either dentists or relatives of dentists and get sucked into the "buy an extremely expensive toothbrush brigade" - [email protected]@cks! Its what you eat and how you look after them :whistling: HOT from me!

I gave them the old "up and down, up and down until they're clean and sparkly" test (as per British Standards). They passed.

Makes you feel sick? That's a bit of an exaggeration isn't it?

Perfect for those guests that don't know when to go home and end up staying the night. Use once and throw away or let them take them home

Though i use a battery brush now (lazy!) I agree a brush is a brush, I have paid 2.50 or more for a brush, and they all do exactly the same, then when they look scraggy they get downgraded to cleaning around taps, and I also keep a couple in my garage for cleaning engine parts from old motorbikes etc

tesco do these too, 10p a pack. I keep a pack in my glove box in case we ever end up staying out for the night, or get stuck etc!

My hubby went to our local dental hospital and after his treatment they gave him a toothbrush and I was surprised to see that it was a normal, no bells or whistles toothbrush, very much like the basic range of toothbrushes sold in most places, so there you go, if it's good enough to be given out by dentists then there must be something in it.

I notice this deal has the £20 off £250 spend voucher attached. That would be £20 off for buying 5000 toothbrushes.

Agree +1

Got these last summer for a weekend away, perfectly fine.

That cant be legal surely.

Have been this price for a while and same price at Tesco also (2x Tesco value toothbrushes). Bought some a while back for cleaning trainers and fish tank!

These are fab, I always put these in the Christmas shoe box appeals my girls make up each year.
I would also use them on my kids if I had to, but I buy the 10 pack of colourful ones for £1 as im tight too lol

not really unless you like the idea of loose bristles in your mouth.

Ideal for cleaning mt alloy's

However cheap toothbrushes are, we British will always have a reputation around the world of having bad teeth. Looking after your teeth is one of the easiest things to do and must be taught at childhood. Theres too many TV ads of products to give you great hair and skin but how many tooth paste commercials do you see a day?

Dont blame the government and NHS Dentists. Blame yourself if you have bad teeth.

Dont let them take it home, a free toothbrush is enough to encourage some people to visit again!! :-D:p

Same price at asda, dont forget to buy the 17p smart price toothpaste to go with it!

The deal is a good one, as any toothbrush is better than none, but as for cheap ones being better than expensive ones, that depends on how good your teeth are.

I used a similar cheap one for a few months, went to the dentist and got a severe telling off for the amount of tartar and plaque around the edges of my teeth. Mine aren't the easiest to clean and these cheap ones simply aren't up to the job. Have used more expensive ones since (always buy when there's a bogof offer and stock up) I've not had the same lecture again.

These were 9p a couple of months ago!! But they are as good as any other manual toothbrush in my opinion. I swear by electric toothbrushes for everyday use myself.

Great - thanks!:-D

I have been using these toothbrushes for about a year now, and I have not had a single bristle come out in my mouth. A toothbrush is a toothbrush. Toothbrushes these days are a pseudoscience full of marketing and quackery. I have not voted, because these are not a deal, they have been this price for ages. Great toothbrush, fraction of the price of the expensive nonsense out there.

Thank you good people of HotUKDeals.com!

Who would have thought a post about a pack of el-cheapo toothbrushes would have collected 32 comments and made it all the way to the Hot List!

PS - To UglyBeautyQueen, can I just say that there are worse things that you can put in your mouth that leave hairs stuck in your teeth!

Have been this price for yonks, same in Asda and Tesco

Well I still think its a hot deal as I wouldn't have known about it if it hadn't been posted as I'm sure a lot of other people are thinking the same so well done for posting it!

I'm an adult with braces and therefore go through tonnes of toothbrushes, basic AND curved/angled/zig-zagged. They get bruised and battered on all the wire and junk in my mouth, but so far, no bristles have fallen out except for one toothbrush bought from poundland (worked out even cheaper than this Sainsbury's post) and an AQUAFRESH toothbrush that cost me 2 quid!

When the incident occurred I did somehow avoid being sick from the loose bristles in my mouth - as Joe90_guy said, there are a lot of worse things I can think of that would make me feel sick!

So I'd say a toothbrush is a toothbrush - even the branded expensive ones!
