How To: Whiten teeth with a strawberry at home

Whiten teeth with a strawberry at home

Strawberries contain malic acid, which is great for removing stains on your teeth.
You Will Need
* 1 ripe strawberry
* 1/2 tsp. baking soda
* A soft toothbrush
* Dental floss
* Mouthwash
* Hydrogen peroxide

Step 1
Mash the strawberry with a fork and mix it with the baking soda. The baking soda buffs away stains from coffee, tea, and blueberries that penetrate your enamel over time.

Step 2
Using a soft toothbrush, apply the mixture to the teeth you want to whiten.

Step 3
Let the mixture set for five minutes.

Step 4
Brush your teeth with toothpaste as usual. Floss to get out any seeds from the strawberry.

Rinsing with a little hydrogen peroxide mixed with water after brushing kills bacteria and whitens teeth.

Step 5
Rinse your mouth with mouthwash to wash away residual acid. Your teeth will be gleaming and stain-free.

Fact: In the Middle Ages barbers also practiced dentistry.
