    I love the Bathroom/Cosmetics part, thank you very much, and I have a lot changed already. However there is one item which I have to use (my Dentist is very serious about it because of my gums) these are those tiny brushes who have a plastic top to hold on to when brushing between the teeth??
    Any suggestion what one could use alternatively? They have a very short life and need to be disposed off too quickly.
