So you might as well keep it healthy,” says Sachi D., a senior at Smith College who wants what the Cut’s Kathleen Hou called “a game-changing electric toothbrush.” According to Sachi, “I think it’s an underrated thing that people don’t pay attention to, and it’s actually really important … Or maybe I’m just a hypochondriac, and I’m afraid of dying.”
