1 Minute Emergency Pocket Mouthwash!

To begin with, i got the idea from http://www.instructables.com/id/Pocket-Full-of-Anything---evenToothpaste/ ---- Yes, I keep these in my wallet in case i need them :D, and I go to school.... How do I survive? I use these! I usually carry 3 if I'm in school , i take em out, violently try to rip it open and squeeze the goods into my mouth, then rinse out in the bathroom. :D

Step 3: Closing :D

Now use the 2 flat sides you have to close the open sides. Leaving 1 side open to fill the mini bag. I used my Plexi - glass boards here REMEMBER THE VENTILATION!. The pictures will help you understand more than the pictures. :)

Steps:
1-Place the cut plastic on top of one of the peices of plastic, put the other ontop leaving 1 open side peeking out so u can melt it off.

2-Heat the soldering iron up then cut the plastic thats sticking out straight through (straight line accross) the hotter the faster and cleaner.

Step 4: Filling and Finishing up :D

Now stick the toothpaste head into the plastic bag and fill it, I use less than a pea-sized portion, also depends on the bag size , NEVER make the bag full, you will squeeze it if it's in your pocket and burst , you don't want that :D
===========================================
AFTER filling try to move the paste as far away from the opening, put it under the surfaces and seal it , I recommend you not use the hole you used to fill as the side you use later:D

Did you know you can brush your teeth with salt or salt and baking soda or just baking soda? Should look up natual remedies or how to make natural products. Years ago there was no cancer but since these companies keep giving us more and more chemicals we now have almost every family with some type of cancer.

Actually, we have records of cancer going back to ancient Egypt (and they died young, often from tooth decay made worse by grit in their stoneground flour. The estimated life expectancy in ancient Egypt was 54 for men and 58 for women... which is still twice that of the Roman Empire... but then they also did things like using lead for plumbing).

Yes, the incidence rate is probably higher now but I think it's more likely we're getting that from all the stuff that's much harder to avoid than toothpaste like...

- Atmospheric lead from leaded gasoline (Scientifically proven as a direct cause for increased violent behaviour in cities. Still a problem since the summer heat dries out the soil so the wind can pick the lead dust back up so children can breathe it in.)

- Mercury in the atmosphere, soil, and sea (It's released in coal power plant smoke and dumped as waste by mining operations and it bioaccumulates.)

Any mercury you eat stays in your body. If you eat meat, you get a portion of all the mercury that animal ingested over its lifetime. (Especially fish, since ocean food chains are long and each step multipliles the mercury content.) If you're a mother, a portion of your mercury load gets passed on to your child.

Hence why young women, pregnant women, and children are told not to eat tuna. It's an apex predator and tends to be highly contaminated.

- Bisphenol A (BPA for short) in plastic bottles and the protective coating on the inside of aluminum cans. (Canada became the first country to declare it a toxic substance in 2010 and the U.S. and European Union banned it in baby bottles only recently.)

- Brominated Flame Retardants (Used everywhere in plastics and furniture to limit flammability. Can leach into fluids stored in contact with the plastic or get thrown in the air when you sit down on a cushion using treated foam that's had time to wear out a bit. They're bioaccumulative, toxic, and gravitate toward the body's fat deposits, which means exercise or pregnancy can release them to cause trouble by using up the fat they've been sitting in. Not yet banned.)

- Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (Byproducts of burning any kind of fuel more complex than hydrogen gas without strict controls. Also found in meat that's been smoked or cooked at high temperatures on a barbecue or grill and they've been found in increased quantities in lakes and rivers in Alberta since tar sands mining operations began around 50 years ago. Known to cause all sorts of health, developmental, and behavioural issues in children when exposed to them in the womb. Also the first carcinogen discovered in cigarette smoke.)

- Trans fats (Produced by deep frying and hydrogenation unless you're very careful about it. They have various detrimental effects but a good starting point is to think of them as cholesterol on steroids. Regulation varies but bigger companies have generally been pretty eager to declare their products trans fat-free as a PR move.)

- High-Fructose Corn Syrup in just about everything in the U.S. because it's so cheap. (Our bodies don't deal well with getting too large a percentage of our carbohydrate intake as fructose. Even glucose is better and that still causes wildly fluctuating blood sugar because your digestive system expects to receive mostly complex carbs and break them down slowly. What makes it even worse is that our bodies tend to ignore calories in drink form when calculating whether to feel hungry and people drink a lot of soda since pure sugar is highly addictive.)

- Fluoride in some municipalities' drinking water (There's a reason they say not to swallow your fluoride toothpaste.)

...not to mention the stuff everyone already knows about like cigarette smoke, DDT, etc. ...and these are just the things I remembered the names for so I could look up the current research and regulations.

Also, there is a valid reason to apply fluoride to your teeth daily (whether through toothpaste or through all-in-one mouthwash).  Bacteria in your mouth excrete acids which slowly dissolve the minerals in your teeth. That's what causes cavities. Your saliva contains chemicals which remineralize your teeth, but it's still calibrated to a diet with far less fruit and other sources of sugar than our modern diet. Fluoride in toothpaste and all-in-one mouthwashes boosts the remineralization process to match our newer diet.

If you ever get MCS like I have you than will realize what these toxic chemicals can do to us. To bad they keep adding more and more toxins and do nothing about it until many are ill an have no chance of recovery. These chemicals make companies big bucks so they will lie to us to get our money without caring if we die or suffer from them. Fragrances are now known to cause 10 times more health issues than cigarettes which I can not be near either. I try to keep my life now free from as many chemicals as possible. Poor babies are now known also to be born with 400 to 600 toxins in them and it was all because of the mother and the poor child had nothing to do with it. This is caused by what the mother had eaten, wore or breathed caused this to the baby. People need to wake up.... I learned the hard way.
