How Long Does a Travel Size Toothpaste Last?
If you are going on an extended vacation, you might wonder how much toothpaste to bring. How long will your travel size toothpaste last? Typical travel-size toothpaste tubes hold about 3.4 ounces, the maximum amount of fluids the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) allows you to carry on board a flight. If you are using the recommended amount and brushing two times a day, a 3.4-ounce tube will last for 9–10 brushings or about five days. Thankfully, toothpaste can easily be purchased at your nearest store if you forget or run out. Or your hotel might even provide a complimentary tube!
As you pack for your next trip, start thinking about your dental routines while traveling. Bringing along oral care necessities and putting a plan in place for on-the-go cleanings will help you maintain healthy teeth and a bright smile. Plus, you can indulge in the local cuisine without regret!
