This is fascinating. I've never thought of using soap as "tooth paste".

A question; is there a reason one wouldn't use liquid soap paste instead of LS?

Cool, I'll find out from DH what flavor he'd find most acceptable and add a drop or two of flavoring to the bar I make for him.

Thanks for the heads up, Obsidian. I kind of thought that would possibly be the case, peanut oil looks like it has a similar fatty acid profile to olive oil.

Allergy issues have occurred to me already about using peanut oil. Heck, I know someone allergic to peanuts. I would never use peanut oil in a soap that I intended to sell or give away (aside from a very few people who I trust to be sensical). I'm just hoping for the best chances of convincing DH to at least try my latest weird idea, and reading through what I could find here seems to indicate that peanut oil yields a very flavorless soap.

Good question! From my own experience, using the paste to clean soiled areas on wooden kitchen doors & cabinets did a real good job until I realized it was taking off the finish. Let "less is more" be your guide. Now I use diluted liquid hand soap -- further diluted at 1 part LS to 3 parts water in a foamer to clean just about everything.

Based on that, I'm thinking the LS paste may ruin tooth enamel so I use the foamer and it leaves my teeth, tongue & gums squeaky clean. I don't mind the soapy taste... I've gotten used to it... but next time I'm going to use mouth wash for the 3 parts liquid... that should take care of the taste.
