expired Coles: Colgate Toothbrush, Mouthwash, Toothpaste $1 EACH!

840

Saw this at St Albans Coles last night, can confirm it is at other Coles.

Whilst the mouthwash and paste are smaller than usual, they are still very cheap per ml. And handy for travel packs!

        i like clean teeth

        •  

          One of this front tooth has more net worth than my entire lifetime savings + possessions I own.

          How great we live in a free world.

        •  

          So…your entire net worth is less than one clean tooth? WTF?

      go to flemington, close to 2 pm, make sure you enter the market before 2 pm, most of them selling between $5 (juice quality) - $20 / tray of mangoes, it depend on the size of the mangoes as well from 16 mangoes to 8 mangoes / tray

        sounds nice but i live in the city so it's too far for me….

      well the brushes are normal sizes, yet simple. definitely don't need anything fancy imo.
      the mouthwash is 250ml, so it will still last you weeks, for $1, thats a bargain.

    Dammit. Just bought a 6-pack of Colgate toothbrushes last weekend for $11 from Coles.

      well just buy another 6 now and average out your losses…

    What size toothpaste?

  • +1 vote

    The toothpaste is 80g or 90g, depending on type. This special is very good for a supermarket, but the Reject Shop's normal daily offer beats it.

    130g Colgate toothpaste (direct import from Vietnam) for $1 and $1 Colgate toothbrushes (direct from China). Both products are identical to their more expensive official import versions.

    •  

      I guess they should be identical, but how do you know for sure?

      • +1 vote

        Comparing the ingredients list, looking at the key ingredients (all the same). Same taste and texture. No Colgate toothpaste is made in Australia any more (it's mostly sourced from Thailand) so it's not even a choice between imported or local.

        •  

          Really? I use different Colgate around the world and often notice variations in taste/texture/foaming, though this could be due to the variations in quality/hardness/impurities of the local water supplies. Personal preference is for the AU stuff..

        •  

          Ingredients may be the same, but concentrations might be different.

        • +4 votes

          Toothpaste is very cheap to make. It's mostly a carbonate, water, a foaming agent and something like sorbitol to bind it all together. Silica is added to make it slightly abrasive. Saccharin and flavouring to make it palatable. The fluoride content may vary slightly due to legislation. Flavouring agents may vary between countries due to local preferences. The Colgate toothpaste I used in India was a bit stronger than here, for example. But overall toothpaste does the same thing the world over and the differences are not efficacy based.

          We're being taken for a ride in Australia by paying the usual ~$3 per 110g tube at our supermarkets.

          Regardless of where Colgate is made - the profits ultimately end up in the pockets of Colgate-Palmolive, an American multinational. For something so simple, can't we make it ourselves and keep the cash in Oz? Perhaps we should rename this site 'unOZBargain'? ;)

      dare you buy somthing will go into your mouth from China? People out there do try to buy those stuffs from Hong Kong whenever they can. Ask you local Chinese community and you get the picture.

      The only genuine Australian Made & Owned widely distributed toothpaste I can find these days is the CEDEL brand.

      http://cedel.com.au/spearmint_toothpaste.html

      Look for it on the very bottom shelf, pushed aside by the big multinationals (that pay the supermarkets for prime shelf position).

    The mouthwash is 250ml.

    The toothpaste sounds like a good size to take in carry-on baggage when traveling, the mouth wash is too large though. This is for the US at least.

        true, I'm thinking more international, particularly as my girlfriend is traveling to Seth Efrica next month :-). Best going-away present ever - toothpaste.

          does she have bad breath ?

        •  

          Generally no, but considering the flight time to and from SA, everyone else would probably appreciate her taking toothpaste…

        •  

          most int. airlines usually provide complimentary toothbrush, paste and mouthwash…

        •  

          Ha, not United Airlines! Better to be safe than sorry, plus it's cheap and you can use it at the hotel etc as well.

    Loads and loads at both Lalor (Vic) stores as well as Plenty Valley.

    It was sold out at Coles Broadway (NSW) but also in the same shopping centre is a Bilo which had heaps and heaps of it. It turns out Bilo has exactly the same specials as Coles every week. What baffles me is why there is a coles and bilo in the same shopping centre then if there's no real difference shopping at either!?!?!
