Trivia Tidbit

I was eating some oatmeal the other day with the following trivia question on it. I love trivia tidbits and thought I'd like to share this one....

Toothbrushes, before the late 1930's, were made out of what type of hair?

The answer may surprise you (as it did me).
Believe it or not, they were made from beavers and horses. EWWWWW.
So now when your kids complain about brushing their teeth, tell them that it could be worse, they could be putting beaver hair in their mouths!
