    Everyday. Shower, shave and brush the teeth. Saves time and keeps the toothpaste from dripping on my shirts...I'm a sloppy toothbrusher.

    I do not see how that could save water.

    Just last week a relative told me he brushed his teeth in the shower because "studies show" that people brush their teeth longer in the comfort of their showers. So much for saving time. As for saving water, I told him I PAID for water (he rents, his landlord pays) so that wasn't gonna happen under my roof.

    It doesn't save water. Gallons of water going through the shower head. At the sink you can (big surprise) Turn the water off while brushing. I do that and you will not convince me you are saving more water standing in a running shower. Second, yes toilet flushing does cause fecal spray and (big surprise again) you can close the lid before flushing. I also don't keep my toothbrush on the sink. It is cleaned, dried, covered and put in the cabinet.

    Shaving, brushing teeth and flossing gums in the shower IS saving time and clean up of the sink, faucets and mirrors. That is tedious. Having to use water, time, Ajax & Windex (for the mirror) is a pain. My sinks stay spotless, along with my mirrors, lights, etc. because by tackling those tasks in the shower, I'm not spraying the mirrors, faucets, etc. If a guy is really water conscious, he can shut off the shower while he does those three tasks. It is so easy to clean up after shaving, and the steam prevents me from cutting myself shaving - like I used to do when shaving at the sink.

    Wow. I really do lead a conventional life. Brushing my teeth in the shower is a concept that simply never occurred to me! I'm skeptical it saves time or cleaning, frankly. Besides, I always use a pre-brush mouthwash so I don't think it would work for me since the idea of spitting out a mouthful of Listerine in my shower is unappealing.

    Maybe I'll try it just to be daring, laugh!

    I went through a phase in high school where I always brushed my teeth in the shower. Not going back.

    No, I always thought that was weird lol. Do you guys bring the toothpaste in with you? Where do you put the brush when you're done? And do you brush first or when you're letting the shampoo/conditioner set in? icon_neutral.gif Lol

    No, because I floss too and I'd need to see myself in the mirror while I floss. Yeah, I can get one of those shower mirrors but why would I let the water keep on running while performing oral hygiene?

    It's not that hard though. If there is a window ledge or window sill you can place your toothbrush there.

    I don't see how it could save time, water, or anything else.
    I brush at the sink.
