Comments: I once had a dentist tell me that if we all used salt water as a mouthwash we would put all dentist out of business! He recommended using a lot of salt with a small amount of warm water....the salt acts as an abrasive, a soft one! It's also so much less expensive than store bought mouthwash! I put a box of cheap, plain salt in each of my bathrooms.

Personally a little warm water swished around in your mouth goes a long way. Even when you don't have access to a tooth brush I can throw some water and salt in my mouth and it helps me out until I get to my hygienic kit.
