Strawberry and Baking Soda Whitening Paste

1 ripe strawberry
1/2 tsp. baking soda

Crush the strawberry with a fork until it's pulpy. Add the baking soda and mix well until the soda is blended in. Apply directly to teeth using a soft toothbrush and leave on for about 5 minutes. After 5 minutes is up promptly rinse mouth with water AND brush teeth thoroughly with toothpaste. If any seeds remain, floss to remove. This trick can be used no more than once a week.

Why this works? - Strawberries, when mixed with baking soda, become a natural tooth cleaner, similar to the malic acid used in over the counter treatments. Both products are good for removing surface stains.

This trick is so easy, inexpensive, quick and really does the trick.
