NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Finally, there’s an easy way to bounce back from all those nasty germs on your toothbrush.

With something called the “DEWS” toothbrush, New York-based designers Ryan Yoon and Harc Lee have solved a simple problem for germaphobes who are obsessed with oral hygiene.

Their plastic toothbrush has an elongated, teardrop-like shape and is weighed down at the base of its rounded handle so it maintains a steady center of gravity at all times.

This way, when someone sets it down it always stands upright, keeping the bristles off any dirty, germ-covered bathroom sinks.

In fact, even if it’s dropped, it springs up and lands on its base.

The duo likens the DEWS toothbrush to a “tumble doll,” those blow-up clown punching dolls that always bounce back.

And with the threat of toothbrush germs gone, perhaps people can avoid cleaning the bathroom for longer.
