Would You Brush Your Teeth in the Shower?

The other day I heard one of those random facts DJs like to share on the radio. Something like 38% of Americans brush their teeth in the shower. 38%!

That seemed rather high to me, since I’ve only ever heard of a few people in my life. Maybe it’s a regional thing, and Indiana just isn’t known for our shower tooth brushing.

I’m all for multitasking — I catch up on my shows while blogging, read while I cook, and clean the bathroom while I bathe the girls.

(Come to think of it, that cleaning thing doesn’t happen as often as it should now that they’re all old enough to handle their own showers.)

But there’s just something about this one that puts me off. Maybe it’s the idea of washing dirt while I brush my teeth. I also can’t help thinking of the water waste. I try to turn the water off while I’m brushing, but that just isn’t going to happen in the shower.

Besides, the whole process — brushing, flossing, rinsing — takes, what? Maybe 7 minutes. I’d much rather spend those 7 minutes warm and dry.
