There are certain aspects of brushing teeth everyone agrees on agree on, like brushing twice a day for roughly two minutes each time. But beyond these truths, most people have a specific routine for brushing their teeth where muscle memory takes over. Some people always wet their toothbrush before dolloping their toothpaste, saying this strategy helps soften and clean the brush. Others act in reverse, taking the toothpaste-then-water route. Which is correct?

The toothbrush should be wet before toothpaste is applied. The brush has spent all day or all night exposed to the elements of your bathroom; some say it must be washed, or you risk exposing your mouth to all kinds of bacteria.

Others say that a splash of water is better on top of the toothpaste itself. There is nothing worse than the grainy feel of raw toothpaste on your teeth. Water helps soften the blow, but only when applied after the toothpaste. Therefore, toothpaste must come first.

#AlwaysWaterFirst

Some people are very specific with their procedure, saying the temperature of the water even makes a difference. But no matter how you do it, water always comes first.

#ToothpasteFirst

Others argue toothpaste-first is simply the more efficient method. Wetting your toothbrush twice is wasteful.
