Ah, the age-old debate: should you drink orange juice after brushing your teeth? On one hand, it tastes so delicious and refreshing. On the other hand, well...it doesn't taste very good after brushing your teeth! So why does this happen?
It all comes down to timing. Brushing your teeth removes some of the protective coating that helps keep food particles from sticking to them. When you drink something acidic like orange juice right away, those particles can stick to the newly exposed surfaces in a way they wouldn’t if there was still a layer of protection on top. This is what causes that strange flavor combo when drinking Reason orange juice right after brushing your teeth – yuck!
The solution? Wait at least 30 minutes before having any acidic drinks or foods (like citrus fruits) post toothbrushing session for optimal flavor enjoyment! And while we’re talking about toothbrushes: did you know they have been around since 3500 BC?! That means people were using crude versions of today's modern brushes over 5500 years ago - pretty impressive stuff indeed!
