Minimalist alternatives from our members
(or if you are allergic to baking powder)

  • An alternative in powder form is possible with some finely crushed sage and crushed grey sea salt. Rinse the mouth thoroughly afterwards to remove any sage residue.
  • Another alternative : the teeth could also be cleaned with just oil or salt water.
