  • it cleans your teeth. ya know ...they had tooth brushes way before they had toothpaste. everyone used to use baking soda.
    same with shampoo. did you know that shampoo was made in the mid 30's (i believe, you might want to double check that) ...what do you think they used to wash their hair before 'poo? ...yea. baking soda ...and vinegar.

  • Ok, NO you cannot use bleach. Bleach is alkaline and will burn your mouth. Jeez. Please google alternative mouth washes and rinses. You should come up with one regarding hydrogen peroxide. Find a recipe and use that. It is the whitener that is in toothpastes and rinses.

    OH and baking soda and vinegar rinses get your hair really really clean!

    BUT be careful using baking soda on your teeth. It is good but can wear off the enamal if you scrub too hard.
