Whiter teeth Baking soda and salt

Mix one part baking soda and one part iodized salt, add water to make a paste. Spread this one your tooth brush and brush as normal. This will remove plaque as well as whiten teeth. By all means, do not swallow this. Also, do not use this very often as it will make your gums feel raw. Once a day is fine unless you experience rawness, then decrease the use to every other day. Enjoy!

the cheapest and best way to get white teeth is to rub a strawberry on your teeth this is a celebrity secret

Unlike whitening toothpastes which, in the long run, strip the enamel from your teeth and cause teeth to become yellow, this mix actually works without ruining your teeth!

It works as quick as in a few days -- brush morning and night with the mix, and it works great.

Should you have ulcers it will sting a little, but the salt in the mix will help them to heal faster.

I threw out all my whitening products when I found out about this mix! Seriously, do try it :)

duno about this sounds a bit weird....
Great! Use this, not lemons or starwberries!!! Comments By: Sonja on 2009-12-02
It worked great! it stung my gums, but it was SOOO worth it. Do NOT use strawberries or lemon juice! it works, but its very bad for your teeth and can damage them beyond repair, especially lemon. if u do use strawberry, brush afterwards.

Does it have to iodized salt?
:D Comments By: Haleigh on 2010-10-05
Stings like crap....But my teeth are noticably whiter! Oh, and another good idea would be to mix it with hydrogen peroxide, which has a whitening effect on teeth.

Hope this works :D Comments By: KeraBeth on 2011-02-24
I haven't really tried this. I wanna get my teeth whiter, and i might just try this. And how much salt do you have to mix with baking soda. ?
ummmm duhh Comments By: White and Brite on 2011-02-23
okay ppl be nice to those who make stupid comments they really dont understand...anyways it works but yea makes your gums sting..just dont do it every single day i wud alternate. (one week do the baking soda/salt mixture and the next week do regular toothpaste..) because if not u will make your teeth extra sensitive
