Practical Plants - Toothbrush

 

 

For the wise survivors a toothbrush is very classy. If you’d like to keep the fresh, abscess and infection free feeling in your mouth, simply make yourself a toothbrush from a section of twig (of the following plants). It is sufficient to chew a green twig end until it feels frayed. You can then use it to clean your gum and teeth. Toothpaste is not necessary.
