How do you use toothpaste in a glass jar?
Using toothpaste packaged in a glass jar is a slightly different procedure than using your standard tubed version. Simply add a pea sized amount of paste onto your toothbrush and gently brush your teeth & gums (will create a light foam). Rinse & spit.
Be sure to place the metal lid back on the glass jar to prevent the toothpaste from drying out.
If you find your toothpaste has dried up, or it’s a bit more concentrate than you’d like, add a little water to the glass jar and stir with a metal or wooden applicator. Start by adding only a few drops and continue to add small amounts until your preferred toothpaste consistency has been reached.
Be sure to place the metal lid back on the glass jar, this should prevent the toothpaste from drying out.
Concerned about germs?
If the thought of putting your brush back into the jar is unappealing, you can opt to use a wooden applicator to dip and spread the paste onto your toothbrush.
