Minty Fresh Turnings

>Has anyone ever tried using toothpaste to polish or fine sand their turnings? I remember reading an article in one of the woodworking magazines (this was before I discovered turning and came to my senses) that recommended a final polish with some toothpaste and a couple drops of water. It's supposed to be the equivalent of 1200 sandpaper or better and I imagine much cheaper. Anyone care to comment or share?
