Just adding to what Saitaina said about this. I didn't comment on this before because it was strange wording. But as I have said before, I have worked as a cleanroom technician, I know about sterilising things. Thinking you can sterlise your teeth is just wrong. But unfortunatly, the advertising industry has done such a good job of convincing the uneducated the you can rid your home of "germs" by using their product people are think it can be done. It is not only impossible but also undesirable to rid you body and your digestive tract of bacteria. And your mouth is the first part of your digestive tract.

As for the "interesting" facts. Interesting to me is code for a list of things that are not only predujiced but aren't even facts (that is true).
