DP thinks it's gross that I do. I think it's gross that he doesn't.

Yes. Makes me gag every time but still do it.

TheFairyCaravan Fri 06-Jun-14 19:56:44

Yes, every time.

RabbitSaysWoof Fri 06-Jun-14 19:56:50

I do.

Urvy Fri 06-Jun-14 19:57:03

Yes. And roof of my mouth a bit. I think you're supposed to.

VitoCorleone Fri 06-Jun-14 19:57:42

Yes, every time

Mitchell and Webb - Dirty Tongues - this is why you are brushing your tongues wink

I do. It's not necessary but I like it!

CecyHall Fri 06-Jun-14 20:06:20

I do but when I mentioned it at my old work I realised I was in the minority (there anyway)

Yes, people might not want to but why is it gross if you do?

I do.

DioneTheDiabolist Fri 06-Jun-14 20:08:36

I do. It helps get rid of wine and blue slushie residue.blush

I have a special tongue scraper. Hate furry, white tongues.

LettertoHerms Fri 06-Jun-14 20:09:26

Yes! You're supposed to, it removes the dead cells and bacteria as well as any food particles. More likely to have bad breath if you don't.

NO! Makes me gag. But my tongue is nice and non-furry.

I do. Dd's pre-school recently had a visit from the dentist and she told them it was important to brush your tongue.

DuckSongRocks I think he thinks it's unnecessary and it makes him gag. ;)

Yes, always.

HygieneFreak Fri 06-Jun-14 20:19:05

Yes every day! I have a white furry smelly tongue otherwise!

I know alot of people dont though.

The dentist did tell me that a furry smelly tongue was a sign of a bad diet.

I use a waterpick thingy with the tongue attachment.

White stuff on your tongue is supposed to be down to bad PH or bacteria or something in the mouth, scraping it away doesn't remove the cause so won't prevent bad breath, it's better to identify the cause.

That said I do if I have the right kind of toothbrush with a good ridgy back. Some of them don't feel as good and using the bristles hurts.
