Safe?: Safe? Personal Hygiene is a private choice and there is no indication that such a product would be unsafe. That seems like such an obvious answer it makes me wonder what you are really asking. Millions of women use all kinds of products for their personal hygiene.

No: Toothpaste is not indicated for cleaning any part of the body aside from the mouth, teeth, and gums. There are products on the market that are indicated for feminine hygiene, although douching is not recommended because it eliminates helpful bacteria and leaves a woman susceptible to infections by yeast and harmful bacteria.

No data available: Oral bacteria are different than the vaginal. I recommend you to use the appropriate product for the suitable part of the body they are created for.

Soap and water: Soap and water is better then any feminine wash ever invented or manufactured for the vulva. Dove, caress and ivory are the top three choices.
