Electric or Manual – Aloha Friday Follow Fun

Happy Aloha Friday!

From Kailani at An Island Life:
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So on Fridays let’s take it on posting, too. Ask a simple question…nothing that requires a lengthy response. It’s a great way to make new blogging friends!


Princess inherited ‘soft’ from me (lucky girl) which means she has to be extra diligent in brushing her teeth.  Only she hasn’t been.  Or at least she hadn’t been until gave her a battery-operated Bakugan toothbrush as a stocking stuffer a couple of Christmases ago, and has been giving her a new cool one every year since.  I had gotten her one of those early on, but she was afraid of it for some reason.  Or it was a boring one, because it wasn’t cool like Bakugan.  It took the fat man in a red suit to get her interested and not be afraid of the buzzing and vibrating those things do.

Ever since she started using a ‘fun’ toothbrush, she’s been much more diligent in brushing all her teeth thoroughly vs. the halfhearted attempt she used to do with a regular old toothbrush.  Which means her subsequent dental checkups have been much more trauma-free, since she hasn’t been getting the bad news of new cavities.  I myself use a rechargeable toothbrush,  and after I started using one of those, I haven’t had a cavity in years.  My question for this week is:

Do you use a manual or electric toothbrush?

Have a great weekend!  Be sure to brush and floss!

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.

  1. We have both. Husband just bought an electric one, but I’m still trying to figure out how it all works, so for now we’re manual. Why does everything have to be so dam complicated. LOL

  2. been using electric toothbrush since 10 years ago. I got hubby to start using electric toothbrushes too. and we have been using electric water floss. they are great dental products!

  3. My father has soft teeth & has had a lot of trouble over the past 5 or 6 years (since turning 50). I am thankful that I didn’t inherit them from him.

  4. Manual toothbrush for me although we had one of the first electric toothbrushes back in the 1960’s when I was a kid, it’s a wonder we didn’t get electrocuted in those days Lol!

  5. Wow. Now this makes me want to get one!

    I have a manual. Our whole family do.

    I’ll have to talk with dh.

    Love that Princess is taking great care of her jewels now. I teach my kids the importance of taking care of them too. So I’m steadfast in brushing twice a day!


  6. I never knew what the big deal was about electric toothbrushes until I got one to try out. I’ve never looked back and I even have a battery powered one to take on the road. A manual brush just doesn’t work as well.

  7. I’m a manual girl. And I brush my teeth in the shower. Just the way I roll. Did you see the video of little o getting his teeth brushed? I’ve never seen anyone so excited to have their teeth brushed. Crazy, I tell you.

  8. Congrats on 1000 followers!

    I also have ‘soft teeth.’ It really sucks. I have an electric but generally use the manual!

  9. Battery operated. We started use them about 5 years ago and will never go back.

    Wow! 1000 followers! I was excited to get to 100.

  10. I also have both, but I really prefer manual because for some reason, I don’t feel the electric does a good job over me actually getting in there and knowing where I brushed. If that makes any sense at all. LOL

    Happy Friday!

  11. I wanted to say thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting… I am following and I look forward to reading more of your stuff.
    All the best,

  12. I have very soft teeth so I use a manual soft brush. It is purple (and always has to be) because it is my favorite color and that makes it fun!
    I do things better if they are fun too!

  13. and the survey says – electric with a timer so I also make sure I brush long enough. Now flossing that’s something I need to improve on.

  14. Check your mail girlfriend! You won the Spotlight Dance again!!! WOO HOO! I can’t believe this! Random.org must like that pretty smiling face of yours or maybe it’s the way you ROCK & ROLL! WOO HOO!

  15. I use an electric toothbrush that I won online. Santa brings my kids a toothbrush every year too. I always tell them that Santa is a fan of good dental hygiene.
