Do you brush your teeth in the shower? Would you ever consider doing so to save a little bit of water?

No. I don't think that really would save water because being distracted by brushing your teeth would just make the shower take longer
Yes, daily! Why the seemingly problematical fact of cleaning one's teeth in the shower?
Whilst my hair conditioner is 'doing its' thing' is when I clean the fangs! When that's finished, it's time to wash-out the hair conditioner!
My sister-in-laws family brushed their teeth in the shower and I thought it was weird, but gave it a try myself and it wasn't all that bad. They said it saved time and water. It does seem like it saves a bit of time, but not too sure about the saving water. It would be interesting if that could be measured.
Goodness, no. I'm not even sure if the water in my shower is potable....
I don't leave the water running when I brush my teeth so there really isn't any to save anyway!
Nope, never even gave it a thought.

The thought never crossed my mind, and it would waste water if you ask me, because the water in the shower comes down twice as fast as from the sink, and you would spend longer in the shower.
No never.
No, in fact I would never have even thought of it. It doesn't appeal to me at all.
No, I have an electric toothbrushand I would not do this in the shower as it would be an awful waste of water.

I turn off the water while I am brushing for two minutes.

Yes, Im with you, electric tooth brush does not go with showering....

Always! It is so much easier to gargle etc and to have no worries rinsing etc!!! While I do my utmost to save, recycle, etc, as far as showers are concerned I just carry on; it's my twice weekly luxury - don't bath; always use minimum water at the sink although I do use running water to rinse washcloth - have an abhorrence of a sink full of scummy water!
I never have, and I can't see me doing it in the near future either. Couldn't bear to get a hair in the toothbrush, particularly if it wasn't my own, I can imagine a lot of gagging going on.
Only when staying in a caravan park or something of the likes - I cannot brush my teeth in public.
I occasionally do when I feel my mouth could do with a good rinse. I've a battery operated toothbrush and it doesn't present a problem using it in the shower.
NO, a would find that a distraction and waste shower water, and like others, I don't run the tap when brushing teeth either....
It seems logical. I start brushing my teeth while I turn on the shower and wait for it to run warm. By the time I am thoroughly wet it's time to rinse.
No, I'd never thought of brushing my teeth in the shower! At night, I clean my teeth at the handbasin, without the tap running, although I do have to wet the brush 1st, so I may do that now, before I exit from the shower!

No, I don't.
No, never.
