I made tons of these in high school I foun that if you dip the bristles in the boiling water it helps to pull out the bristles easier.

I had one of these I got from a free yard sale once, it was a Chuckie Finster(Rugrats) toothbrush. I can never find cool looking toothbrushes for this. My apartment collects strange toothbrushes no one claims, but they are all thick, round, and rubber coated.
