Default OT - Hot or cold

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.

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!

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.

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.
