Baking soda with hydrogen peroxide

Making a paste of baking soda with hydrogen peroxide has been proven effective in whitening teeth. You can buy baking soda in most supermarkets, and you can get hydrogen peroxide from a pharmacy or online.

The ratio

One tablespoon of baking soda mixed with two tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide is the ratio of the mix. It’s easy to make and super cheap.

Use it like toothpaste

Essentially, you use this just like toothpaste, so brush your teeth with the paste and just make sure that you rinse thoroughly afterwards. It’s not dangerous or anything, but you don’t want the mixture in your mouth once you're done.

Significantly whiter in six weeks

A study by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) found that people saw significant results using this paste in as little as six weeks.

It's safe and effective

Another review by the Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA) found that toothpaste with baking soda as a primary ingredient also proved to be a safe and effective way of whitening teeth.

Coconut oil pulling

Coconut oil pulling is another natural way of whitening teeth. It’s an old Indian remedy where you put a tablespoon of oil in your mouth and swish it around for about 20 minutes.

Swish and spit

It works with pretty much any oil, but people often go for coconut because it’s one of the tastier options. It works by dissolving plaque and the biofilm of bacteria stuck to your teeth, and when you spit it out, it washes it away.

Apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar in small amounts is known to whiten teeth too. You use it like you would a mouthwash, making a solution with about two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and six ounces of water.

Burst

It works by bleaching

With this, you only have to swish it around your mouth for about 30 seconds. Fun fact: it’s been proven to bleach on cows’ teeth.

Burst

Be careful, it's acidic

It's acidic, so proceed with caution because it can also cause aggravation of the gums if you keep it in your mouth for too long.

Oranges, lemons, and banana peels

The d-limonene and citric acid compounds in fruit like oranges, lemons, and banana peels whiten teeth naturally. Besides eating these kinds of fruits, you can rub them on your teeth.
