Make Your Own Toothpaste! A Thrifty and Fun Experiment in Hygiene

Posted: Beauty & Body » Make-It-Yourself » Hygiene | May 1st, 2004

Making your own toothpaste is both easy and cheap.

1 cup baking soda
1/3 cup salt
3 teaspoons glycerin
Flavoring for taste (wintergreen or peppermint oil)

Mix baking soda and salt together. Add 3 teaspoons of glycerin and mix thoroughly. Add flavoring to taste; five to 10 drops usually works, but find out what is best for you. Put paste into a squeeze bottle. Use as you would commercial toothpaste.

You can add a drop of food coloring to add a little color. Add a little more glycerin for thicker toothpaste.
