1.Extend toothbrush life. Soak toothbrushes in salt water before your first use; they'll last longer.
2.Clean teeth. Use one part fine salt to two parts baking soda -- dip your toothbrush in the mix and brush as usual. You can also use the same mix dissolved in water for orthodontic appliances.
3.Ease mouth problems. For cankers, abscesses, & other mouth sores, rinse your mouth with a weak solution of warm saltwater several times a day.
