I LOVE sparkly white teeth, if I had just a smidge less willpower I may actually end up with those teeth that are so white they are almost blue... you know you've seen them!!!! Those people who need to put down the teeth whitening trays for a few YEARS! It is a slippery slope and I have teetered on the edge a few times, but thankfully I stepped away from the edge and the whitening gel just in time :) I actually haven't whitened my teeth in about a year and a half which is a record for me, partly because I was pregnant and since then I've just been too cheap to pay for the treatments. So I decided to try some of the at home teeth whitening ideas I've seen online, before spending any more money on dentist whitening. And guess what it works!!!!
Baking Soda is in so many whitening toothpastes so I figured that was a good place to start and I'm pretty excited about the results so far.
To make mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda, with half a teaspoon of water and a squirt of your regular toothpaste. The regular toothpaste takes the edge off the strong baking soda taste. I'm a big baby when it comes to things that don't taste great so this was key for me, but if you are tough then you can leave that part out :)
Brush for 2 minutes... 3 times a week for a month... two months if you are looking for a dramatic difference. Just like the DIY Face Scrub, I keep this in a small plastic container with a lid right next to the sink so I don't forget to use it!
Enjoy, Lindsey :)
