How to Brush Your Teeth Without Toothpaste or Water

The need to brush your teeth when you don’t have access to toothpaste might seem to be a daunting endeavor.  Whether you’re traveling, camping, or simply out of toothpaste, oral hygiene cannot be ignored.  There are a few articles on the Internet that illustrate a few solutions, all of which require water.

Option #1: Soak the bristles of your toothbrush in hydrogen peroxide and brush.
(Hydrogen peroxide destroys your enamel and causes teeth sensitivity!)

Option #2: Brush using plain water and sea salt.
(What if I can’t stand the salt?)

Option #3: Use only your toothbrush and water.
(But is that really enough?)

Let’s say you just had lunch at work and really need to get those teeth cleaned but didn’t have your usual dental tools on you.  Luckily, there is an option that will work for any occasion: A Pasteless Toothbrush. But how does that work you may ask?

Pasteless Toothbrush by Naturesville
The Pasteless Toothbrush is a plant-based antibacterial twig

The Pasteless Toothbrush is a plant-based antibacterial root (yup, it comes from a tree called salvadora persica).  You can use that as a complete dental care stick (less the flossing part) wherever you are.  The stick requires no water, is reusable, and will last for a good 5-10 days based on your usage!

How do I apply the stick?

The twig is 6″ long, and you start off by stripping 1/2″ of the bark from either tip.  Brush your teeth as you would normally do. The fiber opens up and become brush-like with usage.  Once the juice dries out, cut the exposed part then strip another 1/2″ of the fiber.  You will typically cut off 1/2″ – 1″ a day, based on your usage, and that will get you fresh antibacterial juice and fiber bristles each time.  The twig breaks down plaque and whitens your teeth organically.  More information on the Pasteless Toothbrush can be found at

The twig is currently sold on Amazon, the Naturesville store, and on eBay with Free Shipping in the US.

Happy Brushing!
