  • We all know there are plenty of coronavirus pandemic essentials we need to stock up on, like FDA-authorized KN95 masks, Purell hand sanitizer, and Clorox wipes.
  • But there’s also another must-have purchase you should make, and not everyone realizes how important it is.
  • You absolutely need a good electric toothbrush so you can avoid having to go to the dentist during the pandemic, and Amazon is running an awesome one-day sale that you need to check out.

What are the first things you think of when you think about coronavirus pandemic essentials? FDA-authorized KN95 face masks like Powecom KN95 masks that NIOSH says work just as well as 3M N95 masks are probably at the top of the list, and Purell hand sanitizer likely isn’t far behind. And needless to say, you’ve got to have things like Clorox wipes, Lysol spray, toilet paper, paper towel rolls, and so on.

What you might not realize is that there’s one more item that is definitely a pandemic essential despite the fact that not everyone thinks of it: An electric toothbrush. After all, the last thing you want is to have to go to the dentist where it’s obviously impossible for you to wear a face mask while you’re being worked on.
