Calcium carbonate ( a type of
limestone rock), zeolites, and sodium bicarbonate (baking
soda) with clay. If you used a fluoride gel, then you
used sand and feldspar.
The calcium carbonate and sand act as an abrasive. The
sodium bicarbonate acts as a cleansing agent.
Grind up some antacids like TUMS into a powder. Place 1/2
teaspoon of the calcium carbonate into the plastic cup.
Add 1/4 teaspoon baking soda to the cup. Add a drop or
two of water to make a paste. Stir.
Now, go brush your teeth!
