A few days ago I saw a guy at work brushing his teeth in the bathroom.

I think it's a great idea.

Do you agree?

So you're basically saying you brush at work.

Such a hassle to bring your toothbrush everywhere you go. Unless you keep one for work in your locker or something... Theres a reason why they invented breath mints and gum.

breath mints and gum don't clean your teeth. I keep an extra toothbrush and toothpaste in my desk drawer at work. I also keep it locked, just in case any coworkers get any ideas.

I don't have a problem waiting until I'm home to brush. I also try to spend as little time as possible in public bathrooms....people are gross.

I work at a hotel, so I have toothbrushes, toothpaste and shaving supplies available for me to use all the time. Our staff washroom is pretty clean, and it's great to be able to brush at work. It really helps if you woke up late and didn't have time to do it at home, you can do it over your break!

I don't care for it. Brush at home.
And don't brush at all, I don't care. I just don't want to see you lather up your mouth and spit all over.

Depends on what kind of bathrooms you have.Some public ones you dont want to touch anything but at work ours are very very nice. We have showers and everything so its expected to do more than just the basics.

I brush my teeth at home. If I was running REALLY late or something, then I would brush my teeth at work, but other then that no.

I'm pretty sure people have even shaved their beard at my work before, so all the power to whoever wants to do that stuff at work

Some people have a fetish with clean teeth. I had a teacher in elementary school that would brush and floss after every meal. Anything over twice a day is pretty much useless.

I'm not a dentist but wouldn't that just irritate your gums eventually? Seems like it would if you're always brushing and flossing after every time you eat. Not that I really care either way, I would never brush that much :lol:

I think as long as your teeth aren't turning yellow or you're stricken with halitosis it's okay to miss a brushing if it means you have to do it at your work's bathroom.

I was specifically talking about brushing after lunch.

I haven't done it but I am considering it. Our bathrooms are pretty clean. That being said, if my toothbrush ever touched the sink I would chuck it.

I did it all the time back when I was at work. Never show up to a meeting with broccoli in your teeth.

They say you should brush your teeth for at least 2 minutes.
Thats at least 2 minutes too long to be in a public washroom.

say that to anyone who has missing teeth or has dentures. Anything over twice a day is not useless.

Unless you're waiting for someone to open the door cause they ran out of paper towl. Then it's worth the wait.

Also, brushing at work is fine - do you really want to walk into a meeting with bad breath, or food stuck in your teeth?

Just awkwardly try to open the door with your foot, it works about as well as you would imagine it working.

It's surprisingly common in office environments.

Gotta remind yourself not to take a dump near lunch time or you'll come out of a stall to a line of people trying to brush their teeth... they have to breathe through their nose too :sick:
