Oh i am so shocked. Actually my great grandfather had a mine of talcum powders. From then on our house have tons and tons of the stuff. We don't know what to do?Personally i send talcum powdwer(10/15 kg per person) as christmas gift? Do you need one such gift?

baking soda - alternative forms of brushing the teeth including baking soda, salt, peroxide.  There are even forms of toothpaste sold with these ingredients
Baking soda would be better! Talcum I do not believe would do a good job and may be hard to take being in your mouth. Baking soda is a bit off to however is has been used for a long time by other peoples. Also salt and peroxide have been used. Good luck!!
