The Burning Question: When do you put water on your toothbrush?

Let TheJournal.ie distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel. It’s Monday, you have the whole week looming ahead, and you have a lot on your plate.

So do like we do here in TheJournal.ie HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: Discussing the various methods of brushing one’s teeth the other day, our staff writers had an unhealthy level of disagreement about when the tap should be used in the process. Before the toothpaste goes on, said one side.

Others insisted H2O should not be deployed until after the toothpaste has been loaded.
