Why am I sad? Since toothpaste is only available in plastic tubes, I now have to figure out a way to make my own.
To prevent myself from going to go to bed with a dirty mouth, I scoured the internet last night to find information on the subject. I had a hard time locating a definitive source of recipes, but I came up with the following concoction based on what I found.
- 3 tablespoons of baking soda
- 3 teaspoons of vodka
- 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
I brushed with my new toothpaste last night, and it was simply...okay. To be honest, I found it pretty salty, actually, but I think it's something I can get used to.
In terms of whether or not it's good for my teeth, I think I'll ask my dentist what she thinks when I go visit her next month. Heck, maybe she'll have a good recipe.
