Help me settle a disagreement with Darling Husband.
We are on vacation in the woods, The nearest store (a gas station) 20+ min away. down a mountain on a curvy gravel road.
One of us forgot our toothbrush. The other one of us offered to use theirs. The one who forgot their tootbrush is grossed out by this and refuses to use the others toothbrush.
What would you do if you forgot your toothbrush and your SO offered to use theirs?

I voted “sure”. I’ve used DH’s toothbrush when I forgot mine. (His idea, I was going to go buy one, he was like “just use mine!”.) Though I strongly prefer to have my own toothbrush.

I’d rather “fingerbrush” — put some toothpaste on my finger (after I wash my hands, of course) and brush my teeth with my finger. Or even just swish some water around with toothpaste in my mouth and use it as makeshift mouthwash. I wouldn’t be able to share a toothbrush. Heck, I can’t even stand when people leave their toothbrushes out in a bathroom. I’m always grossed out because water droplets from the toilet could land on the toothbrush when you flush. Not sure if that’s even possible but in my mind it is lol.

what if you boiled the toothbrush? (before and after?)

I voted that I dont have any teeth, but the truth is that I would share a toothbrush with my fiance if it was absolutely dire – but the thought of it totally grosses me out.

We all kiss their mouths… it’s pretty equivalent to brushing our teeth with their toothbrushes. I’d put a bit of peroxide on the brush and rinse it regardless though, not because he grosses me out but because used toothbrushes do.

We’ve shared in a pinch, I mean, what germs am I going to get from his toothbrush that I don’t already have from kissing him?

We have shared before. To us it is no big deal, we already exchange spit. 😛

I would do like BayStateBride and use my finger. There is just something about toothbrush sharing… bleck. I know it makes no sense since I kiss him but it just seems gross to me.

I personally would rinse the brush for a bit in really hot water and use it the one time, and then I’d probably go pick up a new one. It’s not ideal but it doesn’t completely gross me out either.

I think it’s gross, but I’d rather have my husband’s cooties than funky breath!

Nope, I wouldnt be able to share tooth brushes. If he wanted to take mine and use it, he could, I just wouldnt use it again.

I have no issues with it. We share everything already so what’s a toothbursh? *shrugs*
ETA: What is a toothbursh? hehe I meant toothbrush!
By The Way pantera that sounds like so much fun!

yes i have before. There isn’t a better feeling than a clean mouth! The thought of it totally grosses me out but after a minute I get over it.
