Welcome to IndependentTraveler.com’s 12 Days of Travel Giveaways! Every day between December 2 and December 13, we’ll feature a different travel product for our readers to win. You may enter to win as many items as you wish (but only once per item).

toothbrush shield travel goodiesToday’s featured product is a set of 10 protective shields for your toothbrush from IntelliDent Toothbrush Shield. The plastic holders that many of us use to cover our toothbrushes while traveling tend to trap bacteria over time. These disposable shields wick moisture away from your toothbrush and block up to 99 percent of airborne and surface bacteria. Each one is effective for about seven days. You can purchase a set of 10 shields for $5.99 on the IntelliDent website.

The shields in today’s giveaway are part of a travel gift pack that also includes Revitin toothpaste (a new naturally protective antioxidant toothpaste), a toothbrush, a travel package of tissues, an eye mask and ear plugs.

Want to win this package? Leave a comment below by 11:59 p.m. ET on December 15, 2013. We’ll pick one person at random to win the package. This giveaway is open only to residents of the Lower 48 United States and the District of Columbia. To read the full contest rules, click here.

Editor’s Note: This contest has ended. The winner is Chris Straub. Congratulations!

Stay tuned tomorrow for another giveaway!

    I am planning a trip to Italy as my Ph.D. graduation reward (have been talking about it since I started grad school 7 years ago!) and I have been looking for good products to take on the trip with me. Whether I win or not, it’s helpful to have a list of useful travel products!

    food particles between my teeth , keep my teeth and gums safe from who knows what type of bacteria this will fit in my travel bag its a must to have.

  16. Cindy says:

    great idea to keep our bacteria only for us! Why would you want to share your germs?

  17. I wonder why you even send me these e mails since I live in Puerto Rico and cannot enter your giveaways. Just for information, Puerto Rico is a colony of the USA. We use USA dollars, mail, etc. So. Why discriminate?

    • Hi Maria,

      Thanks for commenting. Unfortunately, guidelines and legal issues prohibit us from sending prizes outside the Continental U.S. While we regret not being able to open our contests to all readers, we hope that even those who can’t win will appreciate getting information about new travel products as well as the many travel tips and ideas we publish in each of our newsletters.

      Happy travels,
