HOW TO: Teeth Whitening at Home

Celebrities are known for their million dollar smiles. That sparkling white is really coveted and treatments to whiten teeth  can be expensive, messy and sometimes painful. Below I will share with you  an at home  do-it-yourself whitening potion that you can use in the comfort of your own home at anytime... And the best part is you don't have to spend a fortune! 

Here's what you'll need: 

  • a small bowl
  • a spoon
  • a clean toothbrush
  • tablespoon of baking soda
  • a teaspoon of lemon/lime juice

Combine the lemon or lime juice with the baking soda and stir until it forms a paste. Using the clean toothbrush, apply the paste to your teeth and brush for 2-3 minutes. Then rinse out your mouth. 

Honestly this does not taste good at all but it really works wonders. The citrus juice helps clear away plaque and helps shine your teeth while the baking soda removes stains and whitens. Use this once a week and in a month you will have a whiter brighter smile.
