“My toothbrushes are cheap, but they last for at least a year” – Daniel Regha.


Popular media critic, Daniel Regha shocked many Nigerians online after he revealed that his toothbrush lasted about a year, despite being cheap.

Daniel who gained fame for his controversial tweet on the microblogging platform X, revealed that toothbrushes last depending on the person’s brushing technique.

Adding that he barely buys a new brush unless it’s damaged or an emergency because he usually sanitizes them every month.


Sharing two tweets with a picture of four of his brushes, he wrote;

“My toothbrushes lasts about a year despite being cheap, I hardly get a new one unless it’s damaged or an emergency; And that’s cos I switch & maintain ’em. Every month I sanitize my brushes by soaking ’em in hot salt water solution twice, for 2 mins. I recommend….”

“How long ur toothbrush lasts, depends on ur brushing technique. There are people who can use a toothbrush for months, but some persons can’t use theirs for up to a month, cos they brush like they’re scrubbing jeans. Same goes with bathing sponge & towels, it’s as simple as ABC.”

Below are some of the reactions,
