Works for Me: Frugal Teeth

I've discovered a little something that makes a big difference as I brush my teeth.

First, some background: I don't like many toothpastes; mint and I are not always on speaking terms. In addition, I have a rather overambitious gag reflex, which requires delicate introduction of foaming cleansers, particularly to those hard-to-reach back teeth.

With these points in mind, may I present my recently acquired knowledge?

Squirting the toothpaste on the brush before you get it wet increases the foam-factor and allows you to use less paste with no drop in overall cleanliness.


Really, I'm just trying to save you all some money.

  1. Cleaning your teeth doesn't really needs toothpaste. Did you know that?

    My dentist said so after I asked him about it. My autistic boy hates toothpaste!

    Have a wonderful day!

  2. Only someone with dedicated toothbrushing/toothpaste experience would know that. Or someone with an incredible gag reflex!
