Toothpaste

Did you know that the toothpaste we use today used to be very different. Ashes, chalk, charcoal, honeyand lemon juice have all been used as a cleaner for the teeth. Over the ages people have even tried things that are dried and rough, such as crushed egg shells and parts of animal hooves to clean their teeth. A form of minty cream used to clean the teeth was first invented at the beginning of the 20th century.
