    I used to have the same problem (bleeding gums,) but not since using a miswak; which is strange, being that miswaks appear to be harder than toothbrushes.

    The idea of importing them to the States and advertising them to non-Muslim audiences is a winner, particularly to the health conscious and the 'paranoid.' I've always thought it would be a good proposition given the will and the backing. This is the cutting edge of miswak technology Miswak Holder * 1/2 OFF SALE - Dar-us-Salam.com . I also believe that there would be a reasonable mark-up, considering the target demographic.

    They can be found in any store that that serves the Muslim community (strangely, your more likely to find them in a book/clothes store than a food store.) In NY that shouldn't be a problem.

    I'm going to explore this a bit more. Throwing a hundred or so of them in my bag when I came home would not be a problem. But I can see the postage costing almost as much as the stick did.

    Had never heard of Miswak, but totally fascinated now. Considering the strong immigrant and muslim populations, surely I can find these suckers in Chicago somewhere. My Muslim roommate has a regular toothbrush as far as I know, but will check and maybe he can find me a lead.

    I like sensible people. Oil pulling to me just seems like a waste of some good coconut oil.

    I'd feel dirty entering a place like that, no offense.

    Being surrounded by Muslims. Maybe "dirty" is a poor choice of words, but awkward, none-the-less.

    No luck. The roomie doesn't use them, even in prayer preperation, because can't find them and apparently not an integral thing if it's a hardship to find. But he said he'd ask around.

    Thanks for this. Investigating this angle and might have a lead on a place. Will report back.

    Considering that you are stepping out of your own culture and into another, awkward might be expected. My first job overseas was in Bahrain and when I got off the plane, I defiantly realized that "we aren't in Kansas anymore Toto" but quickly began to enjoy the culture of an Islamic country. Since then I have also worked in Saudi Arabia, Yemen and now Egypt.

    Don't believe the US propaganda machine. Learn more about a culture and a religion before forming your opinions.

    I have found people in the Middle-East and Muslims in particular, to be nothing more than warm and accepting people.
