Take your protein pill and put your helmet on. And don’t forget your toothbrush. As we learned from Matt Damon in The Martian, this could be a key piece of equipment for any spaceman. Major Peake even took his favourite photo from space while brushing his gnashers. What can we learn from this?
A good toothbrush is a useful tool in space. But even if you’re not heading there any time soon, using a Sonicare DiamondClean electric brush will give your teeth and gums a clean that’s out of this world, with the manufacturers claiming it can remove up to seven times more plaque than a manual brush. It also whitens, tells you when to move on to the next quadrant of your mouth, has a battery that can last up to three weeks, and its charging pod is a futuristic looking glass. And now it comes in cool purple. It costs a ton, but it’s more spacey than Kevin.
