Try It: Natural Teeth Whiteners

I read these tips for naturally whitening teeth in the print edition of my local newspaper and wondered if I should rub strawberries on my teeth before dropping them in the blender for my smoothie?!

  • Strawberries and lemons are natural teeth whiteners. Rub fruit on teeth and rinse well with water.
  • Baking soda will help remove stains. Brush it on your teeth twice a month, then rinse.
  • Eating raw veggies will clean teeth and remove surface stains.

    I don’t know about the others, but baking soda will help brighten your smile. Nothing dramatic, but it helps. Be careful though, it’s an abrasive, and if used too often will wear away your enamel. Best to chat with your dentist to find out how often it’s recommened. But bottom line, I don’t believe it’s recommened for everyday use. Maybe once a week or so?

    I’ve heard the baking soda trick, my grandma used to do that. It works but the taste is horrible, haha. The strawberry trick seems more enjoyable but I wonder how that works? I may have to try it.

    Thanks for stopping by earlier & taking the time to comment.. I’ll decide what I’m going to do as far as details goes. I’ll monitor my visitors when I get back from my honeymoon and if they’re still lurking around then I’ll probably do the email thing, I’ll let you know.

    I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week & a wonderful weekend! 🙂
