Making Toothpaste

Tired of paying top dollar for high quality toothpaste with baking soda in it? Here’s a recipe for making your own toothpaste. You’ll need to purchase vegetable glycerin from a drug store. If you can’t find it on the store shelves, ask the pharmacist to order it for you.

In a small container measure 10 tablespoons of baking soda and 5 to 6 tablespoons of glycerin and stir. Add 1 to 2 teaspoons of peppermint flavoring and combine.

Spoon out as needed and apply to toothbrush. To ensure good oral hygiene, give family members their own little jar and baby spoon.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
