1. Make sure you wet the toothpaste before brushing your teeth
False - Toothpaste already contains water, so wetting it further could dilute it and therefore reduce its effectiveness for cleaning your teeth.
2. Rinse your mouth with water or mouthwash after brushing
False - Our teeth are like sponges, absorbing all of the helpful ingredients in toothpaste even after you’ve finished brushing. Just spit away any excess toothpaste.
