Do you think those "brush offs" would work to help remove PB? They're those disposable finger things you can use to brush your teeth. My older nonPA dd, Marcela, sometimes has PB at school. Younger PA dd, Sophia, is contact sensitve. I thought having Marcela use the brush offs might be helpful to "decontaminate" [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] her. Even if I sent in a tooth brush then the tooth brush would be "contaminated". So the disposable thing seems convenient. Of course, I'd have Marcela brush her teeth when she got home and wash up, but this seems like it might be one more line of defense. Any thoughts on if it would help?

*PS- I found them at our local Price Chopper on clearance for $.30 so I bought the whole rack! I love clearance!!! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

I'm sure it would help. I use these at work and judging how gross they look after use, they do remove quite a bit of stuff off the teeth. Not perfect, but every little bit could help.

If your non PA DD will use them, and it makes everyone feel better (re: decontaminating), then go for it. I'm sure it can't do any harm.
