Toothpaste and OJ

Didja know… 
When you brush your teeth and then drink OJ, you know the juice tastes downright awful.
What causes that? Most toothpastes contain a compound called sodium laureth sulfate, which causes the foaming action when you brush. But it also blocks your tongue from being able to detect sweetness. So when you drink the juice, you’re unable to taste the sweet aspects; instead, you only sense the bitter/sour parts.
