The toothbrush.

William Addis invented what’s widely considered as the first modern toothbrush in 1780 while in prison while get bored of watching how the floors were swept clean using a brush. He’d then fashion the toothbrush using a bone and bristles he had obtained from the guard. Once he got out, Addis would go on to make a fortune by mass producing his invention.
