BRUSH YOUR TEETH: meaning and examples

Good morning.

Today's expression is: To brush your teeth

Meaning: to clean your teeth with a toothbrush and toothpaste and water.

Example 1:
David. Can you please brush your teeth before going to bed?

I've included this expression today because it's very common for Spanish and Catalan speakers to translate lavar los dientes/rentar els dents directly to English as wash your teeth. Although this is possible, it is more common in most dialects to use brush your teeth.  

If you have any questions about today's Daily Vitamin, please post them in the Daily Vitamin Plus! forum section on our website (

Remember that tomorrow we will send the Essential Weekly Vitamin for Spanish-speaking students of English.

I hope you have a good day.
