Are you all about saving money any way you can?
Well, I kind of thought so because I think most of us have realized the more money we save and the more items we create ourselves, then the more money is left in our pocket and the less we must depend on others to provide for our needs.
So maybe you make lots of things from scratch, but have you ever considered making your own toothpaste?
Whether you have or not, I’m going to bring you a lot of different DIY toothpaste recipes so you can get started saving on this item right away.
Here are the toothpaste recipes to choose from:
1. Healthy Kid’s Toothpaste
I’m very particular about my children’s dental health. I know how uncomfortable it can be if you start developing dental issues at a young age.
So I’ve always brushed their teeth thoroughly since before they broke the first tooth. Now that I know that there is a recipe that contains only all natural ingredients, I would obviously prefer this for their mouths. You may want to try it too.
2. Non-Toxic DIY Toothpaste
