What is minty, usually comes in a tube and helps us clean our teeth?  If you answered toothpaste, then you are right on the money. I mean, who doesn’t know what toothpaste is? It is minty, slightly sweet, and in some cases – fruit flavored goodness that we use to clean our teeth. The gel toothpaste that we know today was first used in 1967, and we have been using it ever since.  But is toothpaste the only way to keep our teeth clean? Did you know that there are alternatives that we can use to clean our teeth, and that most of these can be found in our kitchen? Whether you simply ran out of toothpaste, or decided to live off-grid and use all natural ingredients, here are some of the most common natural toothpaste alternatives. 

 

Salt

 

Yes, salt. Aside from using it to add taste to our food, did you know you can use it to clean your teeth? Salt has antibacterial properties and does not have any chemicals, so it’s perfect if you want an all-natural way of cleaning your teeth. Sprinkle salt on your toothbrush and commence brushing. Are the grains chafing your gums? You can simply dissolve the salt in water first, and then dip your toothbrush and brush, brush, brush.

Baking Soda

 

Yep, we all know that baking soda has whitening properties. Some toothpaste even boast of having baking soda so it should come as no surprise that it can be used as a substitute for toothpaste.

Coconut Oil

 

Another kitchen staple finds its way to the list. Coconut oil is a very good toothpaste alternative because it has antifungal and antibacterial properties. You can swish it around your mouth for a few minutes and then brush your teeth.

Water

 

I bet you did not expect this, but water is one of the most natural toothpaste alternatives available. Water cleanses our mouth and removes food debris, and, coupled with brushing; it does a great job of cleaning your teeth.

Charcoal

 

If you’re taking a break from the comforts of civilization and you found yourself out of toothpaste, never fear. Powdered charcoal can be used as a toothpaste alternative.

Turmeric

 

Turmeric is known for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Just sprinkle a little turmeric powder on your toothbrush and brush as usual. Just make sure you rinse properly to remove the strong flavor from your mouth.

Wasabi

 

Did you miss the minty taste of toothpaste? Wasabi, or Japanese Horseradish is not just a good sushi condiment, it is also a perfect toothpaste alternative for those who enjoy the minty clean taste after brushing. The benefits you can get from wasabi: antibacterial, anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory effects, so this is definitely worth a try.
