Let’s face it – buying teeth whitening kits is expensive, and so is a cosmetics trip to the dentist! Why not get the same results (or as close to) at home with this DIY teeth whitening recipe!

Whitening Kit Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • dab of toothpaste
  • 1/2 teaspoon water

Mix together to create a paste. Brush like normal (but only do it once a week – doing more can erode the enamel). On off days, you can use your regular toothpaste. After you have achieved the desired whiteness, only use this recipe once every few months.

Whitening Mouth Rinse Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon hydrogen peroxide
  • 1 teaspoon regular mouthwash

Swish in your mouth for about 30-60 seconds. Also only do this once a week, and after you have achieved the desired whiteness, only use this recipe once every few months.

Can you do both each week? If you do, would you do it on the same day, or space it out so that you have half a week in between? Or would you alternate using the toothpaste and the mouthwash each week until the desired white-ness is reached?
