I'm sick to death of my toothpaste. Well, not literally, but I don't like all the plastic involved in the tubes of toothpaste we use. Not to mention the crap that goes into the toothpaste.
I've tried various "green" toothpastes and am still not impressed. Plus, I still have the tube to deal with.
Have any of you had success in making your own toothpaste? I've found several recipes online and they all seem to follow the basic ingredients of:
3 parts baking soda
1 part salt
To each half cup of above tooth powder, add:
3 teaspoons glycerin
10-20 drops of flavoring (peppermint, wintergreen, anise, cinnamon)
Mix and add enough water or hydrogen peroxide to reach your desired consistency. Squeeze the mixture into a small refillable plastic squeeze bottle or any container of your choosing that won't leak. Here are some other recipes to try.
Does anyone have a favorite recipe?
