I have been brushing my teeth with the water turned off for as long as I can remember. I also remember getting mad at one of my friends as a child for letting the water run. To waste water like that was so dreadful to me, but she had never thought of it like that.
Do you brush your teeth with the water off or with it running? Why?
You know, until people started asking this question, it never even occurred to me that someone might actually brush their teeth with the tap running. It is something I never crossed my mind. I mean, why would you? It really annoys me when I find out someone brushes their teeth with the water running. My dad is one of those culprits.
I grew up washing my teeth with the water running. It's a habit I constantly have to have to concentrate on breaking. I now brush without the water running most of the time, but every now and then I find myself unconsciously turning it on. It feels completely foreign to have off, but I don't know why I grew up wasting so much water in the first place.
Yes, because I'm in the shower with conditioner in my hair, so I use that 'wait' time to clean my teeth!
IF cleaning them at washbasin, tap gets turned OFF, as have to PAY for that water NOW!
Didn't when a kid, so used to let it run!
I always turned the water off when I clean my teeth, because I was told by my mother & my dentist years & years later, to always clean ‘your’ teeth for 2 minutes, twice a day, but I only clean them twice a day, if I’m going out, & I’m sorry to have to say, hardly ever for 2 minutes! Um.
