Whiter Teeth

T.O.D. (Tip of the Day)- Want whiter teeth? Two inexpensive ingredients hydrogen peroxide and baking soda! You can brush your teeth once a day with baking soda. It is an ingredient found in many toothpaste and it helps clean the teeth. It’s a little messy and gritty but it works and rinse with hydrogen peroxide. Make sure you purchase a hydrogen peroxide that has 3% hydrogen peroxide solution. Hydrogen peroxide is useful as a mouthwash due to its antiseptic properties. If you notice almost every effective whitening kit list peroxide as its active ingredient. Rinse in mouth for at least 30 seconds once a day. It will foam in mouth and the foam kills bacteria and helps fight gum disease. Afterwards, flush your mouth again with water! These two simple steps will help with your overall mouth hygiene and help whiten your teeth. πŸ™‚
Note: If you don’t like the taste in your mouth after the above steps, rinse with a listerine or mouthwash of choice to kill the taste in your mouth.

  1. I have heard this before and started doing it a few days ago. We’ll see how it works! I was trying to get off the Scope and Listerine because of all the other junk and sugar they have in them.

  2. Tamara, the two can be mixed together to form a paste, then used as a toothpaste. I wouldn’t suggest doing this for long periods of time though. Maybe for a few days, then regular toothpaste, then back to the hydrogen/baking soda mix for a few days. Too much of these ingredients can cause problems if used over a long period; just like anything – moderation is best..! πŸ™‚

    • Hmmm I didn’t think of that! Thanks for info πŸ™‚ good to know and I will make a paste and try! Xx

      • I do this every year before going to the dentist, and I haven’t had to have my teeth cleaned by the dentist since I began to do it. One year she said I had a little plaque on 2 teeth and gently erased it. That’s all..!
        I’ve never used it for more than about 2 weeks in total (using it for a few days on, a few days off). It is said that too much peroxide can be damaging if used over a prolonged period. It can remove the ‘enamel’ from our teeth, which wouldn’t be good, of course… πŸ™‚

      • Ok, well good to know!! Thank you πŸ™‚ I want to keep my pearly whites and not make them fall out lol
