Read Carefully When Unpacking

 I was reading through Magellan's travel gear catalog, because I love seeing the clever supplies and imagining new trips, when I came across the item below - Toothpaste Tablets.

The "chewable toothpaste tablets aren't liquid or paste, so they can be carried on airplanes.  Compact and convenient, simply chew a tablet, brush and rinse."

Sounds great.  Except if you buy the other item on the page, which is the InstaCloth.

These tablets "unfold into full sized disposable washcloths when immersed in water."

Don't chew the wrong tablet.

How interesting, may be they should combine and modify them into "toothpaste cloth". Then you can chew and then brush with the help of your finger.

Haha! That's hilarious. When we were in Taiwan, my aunt gave us a bunch of disposable underwear. Apparently, everyone uses them when traveling there.

Ha! We went to a fancy restaurant recently and they presented InstaCloths (or similar) in tablet form on one of those flat, porcelain spoons (like you see in a Chinese restaurant). Then the waiter poured hot water into the spoon from a tiny teapot, and voila! InstaCloth!
