Can someone explain to me where this gunk is stored? Is it in the brush head itself?

Where does it trap water?
It traps underneath the head. If you look at the picture, you'll see a black/silver line right above where it says "Phillips Sonic Care". That part unscrews and the whole head comes off. Inside there is where the gunk collects. It often happens because the rubber head deteriorates and water trickles down the length of the brush head and collects in this area.

This is from a different toothbrush but reading this will give you some insight into what the issue is. For me, the solution is quite simple - unscrew the head and thoroughly clean it regularly (I do it at least once a week). After a while, be satisfied that you got your money's worth and spend another $10-15.

I have been using my Essence toothbrush for no less than 10 years. Yes, the same one. Once a week, as part of my normal bathroom cleaning routine, I take the brush head off and wipe down the handle. I change the brush heads every six months. No gunk.

Maybe if you never want to wipe down your toothbrush, you should stay away from this one. Otherwise, go for it. I've never been sorry.
Its recommended to change out brush heads or toothbrushes at least every 3 months. I change mine every two weeks when I'm changing out my razor blade head. And my sister has this model, she got it at the dentist office. Its horribly weak compared to my Oral B Genius 8000 but it's also like 1/20th the price

I'm switching back to the Essence model after using the Series 2 for a year. I found the Essence to have a wider oscillation which seems better for cleaning and I like that it doesn't have a bunch of gimmicky sounding brush heads models to choose from. Also, the Series 2 has grime issues of its own where there is buildup under the head and along the plastic ring at the base of the head.

I don't have an issue with gunk because 8 years ago I bought some of the silicone Sonicare covers [thesonicseal.com]which seal off the inside of the toothbrush. They are quite expensive for what they are, but they last a long time and make these cheap Essence toothbrushes nearly perfect.

Stay away from these. Just a bad design that collects jerms in the gap under the brush where it screws in. I had one for years that I just threw out, but it requires constant cleaning or one of those rubber covers.

I will strongly encourage to stay away from Essence model. It just traps gunk and not nearly as good as their other models.
Look for Series 2 at the minimum.
Having it in your bathroom they both collect fecal matter.

Inner chamber between the replacement head and handle part always captures a little bit of moisture, so always take the toothbrush apart to let it dry out after using it. Separating the pieces of the toothbrush to dry after each use helps reduce the buildup of toothbrush gunk

Didn't they change the design of the Essence line so that it uses the same brush heads as the Series 2 and up? It eliminated the section where gunk used to build up

Whoops, looks like I was wrong. Please disregard my comment

Lol.. lot of people here complaining about gunk.. How difficult is that to remove head and clean the threading once a week.

Remember these are the old type that get nasty and will likely be discontinued at some point

The series 2 are super weak compared to this one. Keeping the Essence clean isn't too hard, just rinse the handle after using it and disassemble/give it a full cleaning with peroxide every month or so.

Not a fan of the mail-in rebate but it's still a good deal
exactly..
its not that hard to keep clean.. you lazy asses should stop brushing. period.

I have the e series and it traps what looks like black mold. I was recently diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease. I am looking at the mold and anywhere else for answers

they've been revised and the essence line has been around forever. I dont think theyre discontinuing these at all. I don't think they should. They work great. Remove the head after each use and rinse the head and the handle off with water. On occasion use some peroxide to disinfect the inside. Everyone should really be soaking their brush heads in peroxide each day anyway.

I've had mine for years and was worried about gunk (pics online are disgusting) - but I rinse and dry with a towel after I'm done and I never have anything remotely close to what I see online. I assume people brush, rinse, and just stand up their units and the water seeps down making it super gross. I also have the Series 2 and the motor sucks compared to the Essence - plus there's a ton of really good knock off replacements on Amazon that equal the performance of the OE brush heads.

Says the HARVEST30 code can be redeemed only if a Kohl's charge card is used to make the purchase.
