We’ve all got our own ways when it comes to everyday rituals, but one seemingly innocent habit has sent the internet into a spin – and it’s all thanks to the humble toothbrush.
Brushing your teeth might seem like the most simple thing ever, but one Twitter user inadvertently sparked intense global discussion after asking one question.
do y’all wet the toothbrush first, or put toothpaste on first 🤨?— ty’ana 🌹 (@envyteeee) February 12, 2018
If you’ve never stopped to think whether you put water or toothpaste on your brush first, you’re not alone.
But once you start thinking about – and talking about it with others – you WON’T BE ABLE TO STOP.
Twitter lit up with people who were convinced their way was right, and every other way was wrong.

Those who don’t wet their toothbrush before putting on the toothpaste are likely the same people who pour milk in their bowls before cereal.— mangocreams (@mangocreams) February 15, 2018
There’s even more to this debate...warm water or cold water?? I use warm— Fernidab (@Fernidab) February 16, 2018
Hilariously, dentists were having a field day with all the interest in dental hygiene.
Either way! As long as you're doing it #2min2x a day.— CA Dental Assoc (@CDA_Dentists) February 16, 2018
Moral of the internet meltdown - everyone does things differently...
