"Not the same product I used. It was Caroid tooth powder in a white and blue can, by Colgate (I think), or was it Proctor and Gamble. It worked like a charm. Since they quit making it about 15 years ago. my teeth and dental exams are terrible. I have no control over my tartar condition, etc., anymore. Please, make it again!!!!"
I can remember being fascinated as a little kid while watching my father using Caroid to brush his teeth. What are the Caroid ingredients? Does it say on the box or can?Thank you.
