Baking Soda and Strawberries
According to Adina Carrel, DMD, a private dentist at Manhattan Dental Arts in New York, an inexpensive and effective remedy uses malic acid to help whiten teeth. The word acid may worry you, but this acid is made when combining baking soda and strawberries, so it is safe to use at home. Crush one large strawberry, and mix with ½ tsp.of baking soda until blended. Use a soft toothbrush to spread this mixture evenly across your teeth. Leave on for 5 minutes, followed by brushing with regular toothpaste. Rinse thoroughly.
Only use this once per week, as Dr. Carrel cautions that using this too often could damage the enamel on your teeth.
Baking Soda and Hydrogen Peroxide
Add ¼ cup hydrogen peroxide, 2 tbsp. baking soda, and ¼ cup strong mouthwash to one cup of water. Swish in your mouth for 1 full minute. Rinse well.
Make your own whitening toothpaste by combining 2 tbsp. baking soda, 2 tbsp. hydrogen peroxide, ½ tsp. of table salt and a dab of regular toothpaste. Brush for at least two minutes and clean off well with warm water. Brush again with regular toothpaste. You may use this safely once a week.
