Ground control to Major Tongue

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.
