Toothpaste Production

This afternoon, we made our own toothpaste using everyday household ingredients such as salt, glycerine,cornflour and bicarbonate of soda. We then tested our home-made product with shop bought toothpaste to see how efficient both were at removing stains. This is important when trying to remove bacteria (micro-organisms) from our teeth. All groups felt that our product was just as good, if not better, than the bought one so watch out Colgate- Palmolive!
