I made and used this homemade teeth whitener in the past for only 3 days and LOVED the results. I decided it's about time I do it again so thought I'd share this very simple post on how to do it yourself. It's super duper easy and all you need is a little bit of toothpaste (any kind), water, baking soda, & hydrogen peroxide. And second best of all, you get to save yourself $30+ from the whitening strips :)
*Side note - This was dentist-approved!
1. In small mixing bowl, mix together 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon hydrogen peroxide, 1/2 teaspoon water, and small amount of your regular toothpaste. Pictured below is what mine ended up looking like - it was a little on the watery side, but if you want it to be a thicker consistency simply just add more toothpaste. The baking soda will cause your concoction to fizzle a little, don't be alarmed.
2. Brush your teeth with it and then rinse your mouth out afterwards.
3. Do this about once a day for about week or until you see the results you want. (I only needed to do it for 3 days). Once your teeth are nice & white, limit yourself to using this once every month or two.
4. If you need to quick start this within a few days or aren't seeing the results you want after a week, you can also try also mixing 1 part hydrogen peroxide and 1 part water and swishing it around in your mouth after brushing your teeth before bed and then spitting & rinsing it out.
