Toothpaste

If you didn't know, the thing you use to clean your teeth everyday, toothpaste, is a base! Toothpaste has a pH scale of about 8-10. Although toothpaste is a base, it is not a very strong base so it is not as harmful as it seems, so dont be afraid to buy or use it!

You shouldnt be afraid of using toothpaste, simply because it is not harmful. the only way it could be harmful is if you swallow it, but we all know toothpaste is not for eating. You may think it is harmful because it is a base, and because it contains ingredients that are harmful, but once these ingredients are mixed, they create a new substance that has a whole new harmless identity. The most obvious reason for why toothpaste is so helpful is that it helps keep your teeth clean and cavity free. for example, the fluoride in it helps prevent cavities and rotten teeth. Although this is the most known reason for the use of toothpaste, it is not the only one. Suppose you have just not been eating healthy and you get a pimple. Putting toothpaste on it will help it go away. This is because certian ingredients that toothpaste has (like baking soda) help dry out the blemishes. Another good use for toothpaste is for when you get a burn. Now this won't help a serious burn like one you might have gotten in a house fire, but it can help burns that are cause by things like irons, hot water, etc. Putting toothpaste on the burn helps it soothe down and feel as if air is actually being let in.. This may be because of the mint that gives the "clean and refreshed" smell and feeling on your skin.
