Does anyone think brushing you Teeth in the shower is nasty?

I don't see why guys like to do this, but it just gets under my skin, and creeps me out.

  • B.c my ex (as of now) always has Flem in his chest and you know sometimes you gag when brushing, and even though showers rinse out the tub by itself I still like it to be cleaned out, I feel as if I'm stepping in spit. And then when you spit out cold it doesn't move as freely it needs heavy water pressure to flow to the drain so it just sits there, and he thought just by wiping it out was enough, but I like some kind of disinfectant/cleaning product to be used and he doesn't. It makes my skin crawl that he thinks nothing of it and I think stuff like that needs to be sanitized. Thank God were over b/c it drove me crazy.

  • I personally have to look in the mirror a few times when I'm brushing my teeth and I also have to use cold water. I think its gross to use warm water when you brush your teeth...I just feel like that is creating more bacteria and germs in your mouth. My fiance does it sometimes and I guess it doesn't really bother me but I would def. never do it. It doesn't fit with my morning routine.

  • No, we do it all the time in our house. It saves time and water.

    DH also pees in the shower. It doesn't bother me as long as he doesn't pee ON me. ;)

  • Nope, doesn't bother me. DH does it all the time. I never had thought of doing it until I met dh. I've done it occasionally when I'm in a hurry. I have sensitive teeth so I don't use cold water anyway. What's gross is leaving the toothbrush in the shower. It doesn't bother me because it's not mine but I would never do it.
