Baking soda and water mixed into a paste and placed onto a soft, wet, clean washcloth, is a safe and good alternative. Gently rub the paste covered cloth over your teeth and gums. Be sure to scrub along your gum line with the rag but do not force the baking soda into your gums. Rinse thoroughly with water.
