I know, everyone else in the eco-blogosphere switched from conventional toothpaste a billion years ago.  But I've been a little squeamish (and busy) (and lazy) and haven't gotten around to trying the homemade variety yet.  The salt thing kinda grosses me out.  So I've been using all the little travel tubes I have around from the dentist etc., which is dumb because what am I going to take on my upcoming weekend adventure?  Anyway, I am In It To Win It and not buying anything so I made some for July and maybe beyond if it works out.  Thanks to Life Less Plastic for the salt-free recipe - I didn't use the vodka because I didn't have any and this is a competition, remember?

Ahem, is there a prize or something?

I am pretty sure I have enough toothpaste to last me the month, Which is good because I don't think I could make my own. Kudos to you! Let us know how it works out for you.

It tastes gross - salty. Literally the first thing I do, even before I sit on the pot to pee is put my toothbrush in my mouth. And I this is not a taste I want in my mouth first thing. But I have a feeling I will get used to it.

The upside? My teeth feel really clean and shiny. This may be due to my enamel slowly but surely wearing away, something a baking soda user mentioned online. I will have to do more research.
