If on the journey from the sink to your bed you forget whether or not you’ve washed your face, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world to go back and wash it again… or for the first time, just to be on the safe side. You could also rub it briskly and thoroughly on the wrong side of your pillow case. If your sheets are less than 200 thread count, you’ll get some nice exfoliating action that way as well.
Do not use the same pillowcase for your teeth as you use for your face.

Ewww! I would never use my sheet on my teeth. That’s what your sleeve is for.
I thot you were supposed to scrape your teeth clean with your dirty fingernails??! This was very cute, and somehow remeniscent of my younger brother.
Definitely don’t use the same pillowcase for your teeth. That’s the emergency Kleenex box in the middle of the night.
My face is looking a little too exfoliated these days – I think I need a good moisturizer.

I forgot how to even consider cleaning my face and teeth before I black out at night. Does it count as “washing” if drool puddles up under my cheek while I’m sleeping?
I let the dog clean my face and use the pillow case for a towel, does that count?
LOL. If you were to put together an ettiquette book for preschoolers, it would be a best seller I’m sure. If only preschoolers had more disposable income…
Good tip. Real Simple’s going to want it for their next issue.
Just found your website and was reading backwards a bit. LOL when I read the tirade about burning the things your kids CANNOTLIVEWITHOUT. My daughter has a tendency to be like that. I’m not very patient with it, but her dad’s another story. To the point that when she left her CANNOTLIVEWITHOUT favorite pillow at a national park cabin in Uganda (we spent a year in Africa), dear old dad turned around and drove back 25 miles to get it! That’s 50 miles round trip, and almost 2 hours on a really bad dirt road. Good grief! And after all that, when we left the country less than a month later, she decided not to haul the thing back to the U.S. At least the friend she bequeathed it to enjoyed the super fat, super soft headrest.
Hey, my almost 2 year old uses her hair as a napkin. Sticky fingers? No problem, rub them on top of your head. Especially right after you’ve had a bath and shampoo.
Tagging you for a meme if you care to participate.

Hilarious, and I use washclothes for my teeth, drives hubby nuts…which is actually fun to do.
Thank Sarcastic Mom she drew me here and I plan to come back.
