Useful Simple Tips On How To Whiten Teeth With Strawberries At Home in 5 minutes
Whiten your teeth with strawberries? Yes, really! Strawberries contain malic acid; this acid is a natural whitening agent. Having read all about using strawberries as a teeth whitener, I decided to try it myself. I’m a tea drinker and I do whitening strips twice a year, but I absolutely loathe them. I figured if this strawberry teeth whitener worked, I could skip those annoying strips and save some money too.
So here’s what you do:
1) Mash one strawberry with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in a small dish or bowl. It will darken in color and get slightly foamy.
2) Use a toothbrush to apply the mixture to your teeth. Tastes like salty strawberries! Let’s pretend it’s a margarita!
3) Keep the strawberry mixture on your teeth for 5 minutes. I know, this is kind of torturous. Read a magazine or watch a hilarious cat video on YouTube.
4) Rinse the strawberry mixture off of your teeth and then brush them well. Then rinse again. The same malic acid that whitens your teeth can break down the enamel if left on too long, so this is important. (This is also why you should only whiten your teeth with strawberries no more than once a week.)
