Pasta de dentes caseira!

Tooth powder recipe
This is the simplest homemade tooth cleaner. It's dry so it is easy to store and very easy to make.


3 parts baking soda (acts as both cleanser and sweetener)
1 part salt (acts as the abrasive)

Thoroughly mix the two ingredients.
Store in a bottle/container. Ideally, use something with a small mouth, like a glass water- or soda- bottle.
To use:

Pour a coin-sized amount into your hand. Dip in your dampened toothbrush and scrub your teeth.

Toothpaste recipe
While there are a few more steps to this than making a tooth powder, this takes less time than picking up a new tube of paste at the store. It's not as foamy as commercial toothpaste, but it also doesn't contain any chemicals that will dirty your bathroom sink.


4 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon flavoring: essential oils like peppermint, spearmint, sweet orange, clove, or cinnamon bark; or vanilla, almond or peppermint extract
A few drops tap water
* Optional sweeteners: a pinch of stevia powder or a few tablespoons of glycerin

Thoroughly mix baking soda and salt.
Add the flavoring- either essential oils or extracts-, water and sweeteners (if you choose to use one) and mix well.
Mix until a smooth, thick paste forms. If it is too runny, add more of the dry ingredients.
Store in a squeezable bottle or a container with a tight-fitting lid.
