You Will Need
- Baking soda
- Hydrogen peroxide
- Plastic wrap
- Mint flavoring
- Cranberry juice
Make the paste
In a small bowl, mix 2 teaspoons each of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Stir until it is the consistency of regular toothpaste. You may need to add a bit more peroxide.
Brush your teeth
Apply the whitener to a toothbrush and use as if it was regular toothpaste. Leave the whitener on your teeth for at least two minutes.
Rinse thoroughly. Do not swallow the whitener solution.
Put away the extra whitener
Cover the bowl with the plastic wrap and set the extra whitener aside for another use.
Brush with the peroxide paste no more than once a week. Hydrogen peroxide can cause tissue damage if used too often.
