If you love coffee and tea as much as I do, there’s no doubt your teeth take a toll. I’ve had success whitening my teeth with store-bought bleaching strips, but I always find that I get a killer headache after using them. I am constantly seeking an organic, or all-natural alternative, to using harsh chemicals or products, so I did a little research and found the easiest way to whiten your teeth with ingredients you likely already have at home.
- Mix 1/4 cup baking soda with the juice of half of one lemon.
- Stir with a spoon as the concoction fizzes up.
- Brush the paste onto your teeth and let sit for no longer than one minute. (I used a separate tooth brush for this step)
- Rinse your mouth, and brush your teeth with your regular tooth paste.
*Note: you will not want to do this more than once a week as it can wear away your tooth enamel if used too frequently.
