My mother never used toothpaste. Baking soda was her thing and mine too. Cheaper then toothpaste that's for sure.
I think this is coming out thanks to oitnb where the weird Asian lady brushes her teeth in the restroom
A word of caution... For years I would often, though not daily, scour my teeth with a rinsed out buff puff and a paste of baking soda and a bit of water. I changed dentists a few yrs ago and my new young dentist with all his technology told me I had seriously eroded my enamel.
