Tips From Home Remedies/Online Reviews:
If you want to whiten your teeth at home, you can use baking soda. Mix the baking soda with hydrogen peroxide until it forms a paste. Brush it over your teeth and then rinse with water. If you don’t have baking soda, mix salt with some lemon juice in a bowl and brush your teeth for 30 seconds. This will also whiten them!
If you want an even whiter smile, try using strawberries. Cut out the green center of half of the strawberry and rub it on your teeth for about two minutes before brushing off any excess strawberry pulp from your teeth.
