I’m going to be honest: Early on in quarantine, my tooth-brushing habits definitely took a beating. My usual twice-a-day brushing quickly turned into once-a-day. When you don’t have to formally get ready in the morning, it’s just so easy to skip the all-important cleaning routine — that is, unless you have a toothbrush that rewards you for using it.
Hum by Colgate’s Smart Electric Toothbrush, which is currently 30 percent off for Amazon Prime Day, is the latest cleaning gadget that’s going to make brushing, dare we say, fun? It did so for me, and it got me back to brushing twice a day—not only because I’m able to earn points, which I can eventually use to purchase things like a replacement brush head, but because the smart toothbrush gives me that fresh-from-the-dentist clean every time I use it, sans sitting in the dentist’s chair for 30-plus minutes.
