As someone paranoid about oral hygiene, I wondered if the cross section of people on board the Titanic, who must have reflected the general European and American society of the times, regularly brushed their teeth? Were toothpaste and toothbrushes easily available? :eek:

Tooth pastes and powders and brushes were certainly freely available and heavily advertised so presumably they sold well. I'm only sorry I can't still buy this brand!

Whiskey toothpaste? $1 per tube in those days? I bet most people preferred to "fight" oral hygiene....but it must have been a losing battle.
