Whether you are climbing up Mt. Everest or a weekend hike in the backwoods your pearly whites still need brushing! Every ounce counts in the backcountry, this is a inexpensive way to save a few ounces on your next hike.
In this Instructable I'm going to show you how you can save your teeth from cavities while saving a few extra ounces in your backpack!
All you need for this Instrucatable is;
1. A cheap lightweight toothbrush
2. Multitool (Optional)
Step 1: Saving Weight and Your Teeth
Since the size of toothbrushes vary, measure off about 3 1/2 " inches or the length of your middle finger from the top down.
Next take a multitool and snip off the handle of the toothbrush.
The multitool is not necessary, but I find that it makes a cleaner cut then just bending it.
Step 2: All Done!
Your project is complete! Throw it in you backpack next time you hike the Black Mesa or canoe down the Buffalo River!
I hope you've enjoyed this Instructable! Feel Free to post a comment or question!
