Previously, though, I just used plastic bristle type, of the hardness I prefer, and that's all. Well, I do get ones made in America, but that's all the criteria besides hardness.
Once, when we were only married a year or so, Dfil went to the warehouse that we all loved going to, and got tons of toothbrushes and toothpaste that had been on a truck which had gotten in an accident, but nothing had happened to the contents.
He gave us enough toothbrushes and toothpaste to fill a 1/2 sized white bucket. I didn't buy tooth care stuff, other than dental floss, for many years! :-)
