Old Toothbrush, New Ideas

Old Toothbrush, New Ideas

OK, I’ve spent three months brushing my teeth with a WooBamboo toothbrush,

Now What?!

Well, first, you replace your toothbrush with a NEW WooBamboo toothbrush!

Now it’s time to do some cool stuff with your used bamboo toothbrush starting with the bristles. Your bristles are made of recyclable material – Recycle Them!!

Step 1: Go find your tweezers or (better yet) a pair of pliers. We’ll wait til you come back…..
Ok, good, you’re back.

Step 2: So you don’t lose the bristles, get something plastic that you are going to recycle already and put the bristles in there! It’ll keep them confined.

Step 3: Pull the bristles from your toothbrush by grabbing just a few at a time with your tweezers or more with pliers. Once the process starts, it gets easier!


Welcome to Your Multi-Use Bamboo Handle!

Green Thumb?

Our favorite thing to suggest to plant enthusiasts is to use the handle as a growth guide for new plants! Set it vertically in the soil next to a plant and watch the plant grow tall as the bamboo staff helps keep the plant from drooping over! Since the bamboo is all-natural, it won’t cause harm to the roots!



  • Drill a hole in one end, add keys and never lose a set of keys again!
  • Drill a few holes across and hang some cool things for a small wind chime
  • Make a toilet paper, yarn, thread spool or tape dispenser by fastening the handle to a bamboo (preferred) or wooden disk acting as the base
  • Candle making enthusiast? Use the handle to tie the wick on while your candle dries
  • 4 handles will make an attractive picture frame

Got kids, or are you a “kid at heart”?:

  • Hey! Building a Science Experiment and you need something 7-1/4” long, sturdy, safe and reliable?
  • Speaking of science experiments…. Bury your handle in the garden or yard and check on it every month. Watch the biodegrading process!!
  • Orchestrate a small symphony with your new baton
  • Attach a bell, rattle or frills to the end for a toy you can shake
  • Use it as part of a Lincoln Logs set
  • Set it in a cup of kool aid, freeze it and out comes a popsicle on bamboo
  • Glasses or a mustache on a bamboo handle makes for a fun mask
  • Does your daughter have dozens of play rings? Keep them all organized by putting them on the bamboo handle
  • Art project! Markers and imagination can decorate a beautiful handle
