How long do you use a head? And how many times do you brush a day?

I brush once a day (supposed to be twice, I was taught) and I doubt that I use more than a couple of heads a year.

One has to learn to use minimal pressure with an electric toothbrush. Let the tool do the work! I've been using them for decades and I'm still tempted to push. This will cause the bristles to splay outwards. When that happens the brush really should be replaced.

Another thing I like about the Oral B is the 3d action. This is good for gum massage as well as cleaning teeth.

I started using electric toothbrushes after the dentist complained that my brushing technique was bad, and that I should be brushing in a circular motion. I went for Oral B PRO 2 2000 since I was afraid of using too much pressure. The toothbrush has worked perfectly, and alerts with lighting if I use too much pressure. It has kept me and my dentist happy.

I don't know if this is the right thread for my question --
I need some info on Quartz counter top cleaners, can someone recommend a few options ? I would like to know if glass cleaners, shampoo, soap, handwash products can be used to wipe off stains on a Quartz Counter top.

I use the Oral B Pro 600. Though the thing is pricey, at Rs. 2999 (on Amazon currently) it is worth the price as most dentists today recommend electric toothbrushes for better cleansing. It is quite well built with good materials. This model is close to your budget.

Did anyone pamper their cars by buying products this festive season on amazon and flipkart?

There seem to be good discounts on car products which we may exploit

Glad you guys brought up this topic. Cleaned up my old electric toothbrush, changed the batteries and a little WD40 on the switch got it working like new. It helped that I had a set of replacement heads bought from China before the Aliexpress days.

YouTube re-educated me on the benefits and the right way to brush, and I'm an enthusiast again

Anybody order from Pepperfry in Bangalore? I'm having a nightmare with a simple bookshelf order delayed by over 10 days, and no intimation, in-spite of close follow ups every day etc. Half the time their in-app email doesn't work, phones are engaged, processes are cumbersome. Finally on delivery day, the delivery boy decides to turn up in the evening for a morning drop off. Then, the next day it has to be assembled - and the carpenter shows up at odd hours saying he is busy and expecting the customer to wait all day. Next day, same story. Can't reach out to promoters either (while the provision is there). Pepperfry is going down. Urban Ladder is much, much better I felt.

Please tell us what you bought. Today is the last day and I have not bought a single thing this Diwali.

LOL! I am loaded to the gills with those.

And as far as the other aspects of my life goes, I've already heard a mouthful this morning when I was asked for a gift for Karwa Chauth and drew a complete blank as to what I'd be getting.

Did any one shop from amazon using their Axis bank debit card in last couple of days? Looks like they have some issue redirecting to the payment gateway and the debit cards are not working. Can anyone confirm that?

I am having issues adding cards for EMI :( Citibank card as well as SBI card not available for EMI is what they say.

Looking to buy the Kindle. Is it worth the money or using the Kindle app is good enough?
