Top Tips - Toothpaste Tablets

Heading off on an overnight adventure and trying to keep your pack weight as low as possible? Of course you are. Well, here’s a simple but effective Peak Mountaineering top tip to keep your gnashers in top shape.

We’ve tried various lightweight toothpaste options over the years and even shared a tip for taking mini toothpaste tubes as our 29th Top Tip here.  But, things move on and we reckon we now have a better option to share.  Toothpaste tablets become our 37th Peak Mountaineering Top Tip choice.

The tablets are extremely simple to use - just pop one in your mouth, chew it up to create a creamy froth, brush as normal and spit.  It couldn’t be easier.  You can simply pack a couple of tablets for each day you are out, combine it with a small toothbrush and you are good to go. No packaging, no waste and they are a very cost effective option too.

We’ve been using tablets from Lush for our recent adventures, but there are various makes and flavours available online.  Give them a try for your next camping trip and we wish you a gleaming adventure smile!
