Day 17 – DIY Toothpaste – {DIY From Scratch}

Today I tried DIY Toothpaste.  And I have to say I’m not sure if I’ll stick with it.  The DIY Shampoo and Conditioner is working fine, but neither of those involves taste.  This one does.  I’m willing to give it the old college try though.

Honestly I really don’t mind my regular toothpaste, but I love trying to see if other ways will work.  I’ll give you my final thoughts at the end of the month.

I think it goes without saying that whatever toothpaste you use, you should brush and floss everyday.

Until tomorrow,






Do they make dog toothpaste?  If so I’d like chicken flavor.
