Brushing Teeth

Tonight after brushing my teeth, Jason looks at me and says, "What's all around your mouth." I explained that the new toothpaste we have been using makes the skin (and chin) red for a little while and then it goes away. He then proceeds to laugh at me and try to figure out how I get toothpaste all on my chin. I told him everybody gets toothpaste around their mouth when they are brushing. It's normal. He disagreed and then showed me how to "neatly" brush teeth. I have to say he DID do a great job. He really didn't get any toothpaste on the outside of his mouth. Am I just a messy toothbrusher or is it normal for the toothpaste foam to escape and get on the mouth and chin?

I didn't get toopaste on my face until I got a sonicare toothbrush. Before that I could answer the phone while brushing my teeth.

I do not get toothpaste on my face at all. I also am a neat brusher. I have to say that my Uncle Brian is the worst tooth brusher I have ever seen. Toothpaste gets all over his mouth and chin, covers his hand and runs down his arm. I remember being completely stunned witnessing this as a child.

I would have to say that you're just an incredibly messy toothbrusher. But hey...if your chin needs cleaning, then I say go for it.

Im going to go ahead and say that it is not normal to get toothpaste all over your face while brushing... its not called facepaste Rachel. But whatever gets your teeth clean I say go for it...

If it's any concellation Rach, Jen gets toothpaste all over her mouth too.

And I, like Jason, have never understood how it happens.

I think it really strange to brush neatly! I think you should make a mess when brushing. I have toothpaste all over my bathroom walls!

I have discovered that if you run water over the toothpaste on the toothbrush, you will get toothpaste all down your chin. If you don't run the water, you are pretty much going to have a dry chin. I just had to experiment with it. Isn't life exciting!
