How to Naturally Whiten your teeth !

Its easy all you need is
a banana, couple strawberry, and baking soda
I have 2 recipes for you using the ingredients above so lets get started 

So first smash a bunch of strawberries like this, but dont smash a lot 
looks gross right, but it helps
Next you are going to add baking soda to this 
add how much need 
next your going to take a tooth brush and pretend your mixture is tooth paste 
yes it feels a little awkward in your mouth but dont worry it helps a lot. spit the mixture out and take more until you finish the mixture ..

It is very important to brush your teeth well after using any strawberry treatment. Strawberries do contain natural sugar, and leaving them on your teeth for long periods of time could cause cavities. And the very ingredient that whitens our teeth, malic acid, can be harmful if left on too long. Any type of acid could eat through our teeth’s enamel, and that also provides ample opportunity for cavities to form.
Due to the strawberry’s acid content, it’s probably a good idea not to use strawberry treatments too often even if you do brush well afterward. Once a week should be sufficient. It’s also important to continue to go to the dentist for regular cleanings.
While it is important to take some precautions when using strawberries and baking soda to whiten teeth, these natural whiteners are less expensive than commercial treatments. The strawberries loosen the hold of the stains on the teeth, while the baking soda buffs the stains away. And best of all, the danger of using chemicals on your teeth is not a concern.
OK next let me show you another recipe with just using a plain banana 
so just take a banana and peel it like this
 Ok once you have your banana separate form the skin.. optional - eat the banana because we will be using the skin :)
 I know this also might sound gross but... do it its gonna really help.. take the inside and rub it on your teeth all over. That it its easy and all you need is a simple banana :)
More info 
  • Bananas last longer if hung on a banana rack in room temperature.

  • Drinks like dark sodas, coffee, dark wines, dark tea and of course, smoking all stain the teeth.

  • The leftover banana peel can be cut up and put in the freezer for using later even though it turns color, it can still be used and the leftover used for compost.
    To whiten teeth  with banana peel is very safe and healthy for teeth as banana peels are a wonderful source of minerals and vitamins. They do not have the abrasiveness that other natural whiteners have and best of all they are inexpensive.
    - ehow:)

  • Thank you guys and tell me what you try out and if it works:)
