Basically, the microbeads that some toothpaste brands (such as Crest’s Pro-Heath and 3D White) include in their products are absolutely horrible for you, and I strongly recommend that you never purchase this type of toothpaste ever again. I’m doing you a favor here. First of all, the microbeads are just that… micro beads. Teeny tiny synthetic plastic balls. That we willingly put in our mouths – and scrub on our faces! Some face washes have these beads, too. The tiny balls are made from a material called polyethylene, which is the most common plastic in our world; think water bottles and grocery bags.
Well, that’s my informational burst for the day. In other news, I went apple picking today! It was glorious – more on that later. I also went climbing today with Max and Sarah and had a really good climbing day for the second day in a row!! I think maybe I’m actually progressing a little bit.
Finally, I have made another great dehydrator success! Max bought my beautiful roses last week, and once they lost their spark, I dehydrated them. They came out great, and SO fragrant; fruity almost. I definitely have potpourri and rose tea in my future. What else can be done with dried rose petals? Anyone?
Good night, turtle doves. Kisses and Hugs.
