This debate about brushing teeth is driving Twitter crazy
‘Wet the toothbrush first, or put toothpaste on first?’
The internet is nothing without high-brow intellectual debate, and this discussion that’s raging on Twitter is surely one that will have theses written on it for years to come.
The debate? Should you wet your toothbrush before putting toothpaste on it?

You might think this is a benign discussion about dental hygiene, but that’s where you’re wrong – it’s got thousands of people talking, and talking passionately.

At this point the only thing clear is there’s a battle of the minds going on here.
Perhaps it’s best then to just agree to disagree, let bygones be bygones and understand that brushing your teeth is about your own opinions, feelings, hopes and dreams.
Even you, guy who puts the toothpaste on his tongue instead of the brush.
I wet the toothbrush but I squeeze the toothpaste on my tongue.— 𝓚𝓘𝓝𝓖 𝓔. (@ImJustErnest) February 14, 2018
