As Salam Aleykum,

Just opened a new Miswak and boy it smells chemical, its all powdery as if cutting it just produces saw dust.

Smells proper chemical like.

Has anyone noticed that?

Assalamu`Alaykum

Yea, you have to soak it in water for maybe a day. Then try using it.

Really?

I've never tried one in a packet before.

Only fresh, and they taste a bit funny at first but I wouldn't call it chemical-ly I think.

It doesnt taste too spicy like the other stuff alhamdulillah.

Nawal, well some of us dont get many fresh miswak sticks. Though there was this french brother who goes back and forth from yemen to Uk and he always sold fresh ones mashaAllah those are SPICY/JUICY.

That was me posting under my sisters name unknowingly :-[

I wonder why Muslims dont start growing Miswaak trees over there? Or is the climate not suitable?

And Spicy/Juicy ones are the Best! That crumbly thing you described just now just dont sound right........

oh is it that one, those are nasty sorry. Really bad. After using it you need to brush your teeth again. Have you people tried the flavored ones? Like mint, strawberry. lemon oh my Allaah that one is horrid. Stay away from the imitation Knock off miswaks

Probably is, but there are some trees which are OK, like before I became Muslim my mum used to pick from certain trees here in the uk and use them as siwak, I dont know which type of trees she used I never used to pay attention.

They are about strong though the spicy/juicy ones. I know the crumbly thing was pretty worrying.

I heard about the ones with flavors! Ya Allah they already sound horrible. Just chew some gum innit if you want strawberry flavor etc etc etc.

I strongly suspect that those type of stuff may help to erode your teeth instead of cleanse it lol

Yea once a bro gave me a free mint one and once a bro gave me a free cinnamon one. They were ok.

Trust I was worried so I prepared to glasses of water besides me right now. Funny think is that this miswak looks like sand more than stick colourwise.

I live in Pakistan and we can get miswak from 10-50 Rs (about 10-50 cents). I just got a miswak but in the middle it was red. I don't know why it is. Also it is zaitoon miswak.
