Woman smileDo you want a bright and healthy smile without the harsh chemicals? There are many at home all-natural teeth whitening strategies.

You can use lemon or orange peels to whiten your teeth by rubbing the inner white part of the citrus peel over your teeth. This will act as a polishing mechanism that will brighten the enamel, remove stains, and soften the discoloring. This will give your teeth a whiter shine. Remember to rinse after to remove any leftover citric acid.

Spearmint is an all-natural plaque fighter and works to eliminate bacteria that causes bad breath. By rinsing with 1-2 drops of spearmint extract you can whiten your teeth and say goodbye to bad breath at the same time!

Strawberries surprisingly can act as a magical teeth whitener. The malic acid in strawberries and strawberry seeds act like an astringent on your teeth to remove surface plaque and stains. You can cut a strawberry in half and rub on your teeth immediately after brushing them. But you can also make a mixture of crushed strawberries and baking soda for the whitening potion. Spread the mixture over your teeth and leave it on for 5 minutes. Thoroughly brush away berry mix and rinse completely. This procedure can be done once a week. Always rinse extra well after using strawberries on your teeth because if the acid is left on your teeth it can eat away at the enamel.

Snacking on crunchy saliva producing foods like celery, carrots, and apples can be great for your teeth. The crunchy foods act like a toothbrush as you chew it. For example, the process of chewing an apple removes excess food and bacteria from your mouth while scrubbing away surface stains.

A quick and easy recipe teeth whitener can be made with hydrogen peroxide mixed with baking soda to make a paste! Hydrogen peroxide is an anti-bacterial agent that works great as mouth and gum cleaner.

Don’t have time for these home remedies? You can always try a brightening toothpaste that uses strictly all-natural ingredients. Tom’s of Maine Simply White toothpaste, removes stains with sodium fluoride (sourced from fluorspar, an ore) and silica (purified from the earth). You won’t find any chemical thickeners in Tom’s products because they use seaweed instead!

Simply swishing water in your mouth for 30 seconds right after eating will help prevent the food you just ate from staining your teeth! Take it a little further and add salt to the water you swish through your teeth to contribute to long lasting clean teeth.

A healthy and bright smile is certainly something to be happy about. Maintaining a healthy diet, will go far to keep your teeth white. However using a collection of natural teeth whitening home remedies will definitely boost the tooth shine.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
