I haven't been able to find Gleem toothpaste for years. Is it a dead brand or an overseas brand now?

This article said that as of 2013, Procter & Gamble was still manufacturing it, with no plans to discontinue it. However, declining supply-and-demand and decreased promotion meant that it was available only in Dollar Tree stores.

In 2014, however, P&G purged a lot of brands. It looks like Gleem was among them -- I see a lot of references to its discontinued status -- but this article about the purge doesn't mention it specifically.

Man, I hate to hear that. It was one of few P and G products around a dollar. If I can't get a big tube of paste for a buck or less, I don't buy it.

Aluminum-free baking soda works very well and it is quite inexpensive.  Smile

I love a good scrubbing with baking soda, floss, then HYDROGEN PEROXIDE. Mad dog! He's foaming at the mouth. Talk about a clean feeling PIE HOLE!

According to the Wikipedia article for Gleem, the brand was discontinued in 2014. The old Gleem formulation is now sold as Crest Fresh and White, starting at $2.99 a tube at some online drugstores.
I had heard of the brand from when I was a kid. As far back as the 1950s it was in the top two behind only Colgate. That would have been a time when regular brushing habits were becoming more popular. Those old brands were part of a first generation of people who kept their teeth well into old age and sometimes to the end of life.

Boris likes Pepsodent. It can be bought at a good price of only one dollar at the Family Dollar Store.
