Teaching kids to brush their teeth can sometimes be a challenging task. But a mum has discovered a super simple hack to help limit the mess that it can make.
"Tell me I am NOT the only one who didn't know that the coloured bristles on children's toothbrushes are 'toothpaste indicators' that tell you where to put it and how much toothpaste to use!?"
Turns out she wasn't the only one who was surprised by the tip...
"I didnt know that either never really thought about what they were for lol, thanks for this." wrote one person
"I don’t think there’s a single parent out there that knew this!" added another.
The original poster said she was amazed at the response to her post and was pleased it helped other parents.
"I can't believe the response it's got to be quite honest. I am a small local company and just thought I'd be sharing it with a few hundred mums who follow my page. It's crazy!"
"Lots of he usual 'this must be rubbish' comments but mostly just thousands of 'wow I didn't know this', 'I've been using too much too!'"
