DIY Teeth Whitening

If you drink copious amount of coffee and tea, like me. Then you are well acquainted with the only negative side effect of drink caffeine–staining.

Yes, you can drink your coffee with a straw but I feel like the public is too judgemental when it comes to such things (kind of like socks and sandals).

Thus, this easy at home remedy will help you when you need to bring your pearly whites up a notch.

What You Need:

Baking Soda

Hydrogen Peroxide

A bowl

A spoon

A toothbrush

…Patience

Hydrogen Peroxide

For those who are concerned about putting hydrogen peroxide in your mouth. The store only sells it in 3% bottles and it is safe to put in your mouth. If you drink the whole bottle I would be concerned.

If you suffer from plague built up hydrogen peroxide is a great way to soften it for removal.

The Application

Mix equal parts of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide until you have a smooth paste.  Pack the paste onto a toothbrush and press onto your teeth, I recommend working from the back to front doing the bottom jaw first (view photo below).

Disclaimer: This part is really messy.

Allow up to ten minutes and then rinse your mouth out. Try your best not to swallow any product.

If you enjoyed this trick then go ahead and give it a like.

    This works better than anything you can pick up in a drugstore. One note: it has turned the gum area around my teeth white, but only for a short amount of time. So, don’t freak if this happens to you.
