I have a confession: I hate flossing my teeth. So much so that up until about ten years ago, I didn’t use to floss every night. There’s just something about sticking my fingers in my mouth, and little bits of food flying out, that makes me cringe.
But then I learned to floss in the shower. And I’ve been flossing every night since. (Yes, I shower at night – it shortens my morning routine considerably.) With the water running down my back and washing all those food particles away, flossing in the shower is about as pleasant as flossing can possibly be. And it was particularly helpful back in my pregnancy days, when all of a sudden, in the middle of flossing, I’d be hit with a wave of nausea.
So if you hate flossing as much as I do, why not do it in the shower?
