Life List Day 242 - Brush My Teeth With Baking Soda
This is one borne of necessity: Today, I was getting ready to brush my teeth when I accidentally dropped my tube of toothpaste in the toilet. Needless to say, the 5-second rule didn't apply in this situation.
I could have put off brushing my teeth until later after I ran to the store, but brushing my teeth with baking soda is one of those things I've always wanted to try. So I did.
I was worried it would be really gritty (like biting into a sweater...eeeeeegh...the worst feeling ever) but it wasn't.
It was, however, surprisingly sour.
Afterwards, I didn't have that cool, minty fresh feeling - but I have to say, my teeth felt really clean.
I'm not sure if I'll keep doing it though ... isn't toothpaste supposed to have flouride?
