Normally, a lot of us brush teeth, then don’t eat for quite a while – especially if we’re heading out the door to work, or going straight to bed. But while we’re enjoying a few days of holiday, you may experience the booby-trap toothpaste phenomenon. You know what I mean, when you brush, then eye the table and decide to have another bite and (ominous Hollywood music)…yecch. Something that you know was really yummy now tastes like something you’d scape off your shoe. So how can a pea-sized bit of toothpaste make everything (but especially orange juice!) taste so darn bad? Well, here’s a really nice explanation. You might want to check it out. Partly because it’s a fun thing to talk to your kids about, but also because the article points out that your toothpaste doesn’t have to do this! With a simple brand change, you could be booby-trap (and yecch!) free.
