So over the weekend a friend mentioned that she brushed her teeth with hot water!?! I have always brushed mine with cold. So I am curious how many people use hot?

I put in mine for cold, but my husband brushes with hot! So weird to me...
BUT I do have an odd love for ice cold water. ;)

my teeth are too sensitive to brush with cold water, so i have to use warmish hottish water

Never occurred to me to use hot. I just use the cold tap.

I rinse my toothbrush in hot to kill germs, but the wetting it before brushing part is with cold water.

I brush in cold and rinse the brush in hot.

I just turn the tap on, whereever it's set, and wet my brush. Then turn it off and brush. Turn it back on, rinse my mouth and rinse the brush. I don't really pay attention to the temperature of the water. Just as long as it's wet! :D

I always brush with cold

I've been brushing my teeth in the shower since I was like, 10. So it's hot water for me. On the odd occasion when my brush my teeth at the sink, I guess I usually use cold, never really thought about it, and the sensation is always strange.

Btw, I don't store the toothbrush in the shower, it's in the medicine cabinet like normal people. :)

Interesting... I thought everybody but me used cold water! I used to use cold, but switched to hot for some reason. :shrug:

I used to brush with cold water. Now because my teeth are super sensitive, luke warm. I think I'll try hot water tonight and see how that feels.

My gums and nerve endings are sensitive sometimes, so I go from lukewarm to hot water when I brush them. I also can't eat popsicles or any ice cream bar that I have to bite into because of this problem.

Ok, conservation confession here. I have the tap on the hottest setting so as I turn the water on/off during tooth brushing I end up with hot water from the tap by the time I get to face washing without having to run the tap for hot water. So I guess I start brushing with cold and end up with hot.

Oh man, I can't believe I just explained that. You folks bring out the oddest confessions from me.

I actually just recently started brushing with hotter water. Maybe 6 months ago! I seen my Mom brushing with hot water and I was like, Hey, I'm gonna try that! And I ended up liking it :lol: I don't think I could ever go back to cold :p
