Want White Teeth for $1?

I recently watched a YouTube video on how to whiten teeth with something soooo obvious…PEROXIDE! There are so many toothpastes on the market with peroxide in them that it’s a no-brainer.Peroxide is normally used to sterilize wounds but it is good for teeth whitening because the chemicals in it kill teeth staining bacteria. Surprisingly it’s also good for preventing sore throats (because it kills bacteria).

Before I brush in the morning and evening I rinse with peroxide. I have been doing this for about two weeks and I already see a difference. I’ve used a few other “commercial” whitening systems but this is the easiest, quickest, and cheapest one and it’s just as effective. Peroxide is now part of my beauty regimen. The only con is if you have sensitive gums it might be too harsh so if you use it and it burns you should probably discontinue use.

Directions: Pour about 2 tablespoons of the antiseptic into your mouth, and swish it around for 1 minute. The solution will begin to foam; this is how you know it is working. The hydrogen peroxide combined with oral bacteria cause bubbles to form in your mouth. Spit it out and brush your teeth as normal.

You should avoid coffee, red wine, smoking, teas and anything else that may stain teeth to see the best results.

Have you tried this before? Would you? Let me know below.

    I haven’t because I have always been scared. Its so strange that even though I know its used in toothpaste I can’t bring myself to take it straight up lol. I was thinking today I need to brighten my smile. I may just give it a try after all. I will let you know if I get the courage. haha

    Hmm now I wonder if Crest’s Clinical mouthwash has peroxide in it because it foams a little and i noticed that it whitened my teeth a bit. This seems like a great idea. Thanks for the tip.

    Most people who recommend peroxide cut it 50/50 with water. That makes it weak enough that it doesn’t bother most people – and if that is still too strong for you just dilute it more. Believe me – it is much safer than fluoridated toothpaste or the fluoride they put in most tap water. Avoiding both is something of a challenge, but since I like my brain to work and my bones to support me I consider it worthwhile.

    My mom has told me to try this. If not for whitening my teeth, for getting the extra bacteria out of my mouth. I feel so weird when I use it because I do not want to swallow it. Somehow, I think I always will lol

      LOL. Me, too. Yes, it’s definitely good for fighting bacteria, too. I haven’t used it all week. If I don’t see something, I completely forget about it. Smh.
