Here is a fun activity you can do that you can actually make use of.
In this article, you will learn how to make your own toothpaste. Here is what you need:
- baking soda
- plastic bag
- flavoring (such as vanilla,mint, or bubblegum) OPTIONAL! WON’T TASTE GOOD WITHOUT THOUGH!
First, put 4 teaspoons of baking soda into a plastic bag. (Small size Ziploc is fine). Next, add 2 teaspoons of salt. Then, add a little bit of water, just until you get a paste type substance. Now, you’re probably thinking this is going to taste terrible. Well it is. Unless you put flavoring in it. I would suggest mint, vanilla, or bubblegum extract. However, this will only slightly cover the salty taste. Only put a few drops in the paste.
You can now use it. This paste is made with common knowledge. Baking soda has always been a cleaning substance. Salt kills bacteria in the mouth. You can also, if you want, add fluoride into the mixture. This is not the most perfect toothpaste, but perhaps you just want to have some fun or need toothpaste on a moments notice. Maybe.
