Crest & Colgate Liquid Gel "Toothpaste" on 06/13/2005 21:20:19 MDT Print View

I just picked up a container of Crest Liquid Gel and was able to transfer this material (without any problem) to one of my Bozeman Mountain Works (BMW) .35 oz bottles. The BMW bottles, which are available on the BPL site, are used by many of us to repackage many of our liquids including Aqua Mira, deet, hand sanitizer, and sunblock.

The BMW bottles can be squeezed and the liquid gel easily passes through the bottle's orifice to your toothbrush. Anyone considering using baking soda, or toothpaste now has an available alternative. Full BMW bottle weighs .4 oz.

Both Crest and Colgate have a wide assortment of flavors available if anyone wishes to try them.

I have been doing the same with the Tom's of Maine gel toothpaste.

I found Arm & Hammer Tooth Powder at drugstore.com and I put some in the BMW 0.25 oz vials. There is enough in one vial to last a full week and it does not foam up like paste does.

I like my baking soda....but I can't get the rest of my family to use it. :)

I don't take gel or paste into the backcountry due to the water in them. Powder mixed with water found in situ is a lighter choice. I choose baking soda over tooth powder as it lacks the aromatic flavoring found in the latter that might attract bears and critters.

Dehydrate your regular/favorite toothpaste.
Fill a tray with toothpaste blobs of suitable size for one brushing, and dehydrate. You can get hundreds onto one tray. Store them in an air tight container and just pack the number you require for each trip. Simple, easy, and super-ultra light.
