Once a month, gently brush your teeth with bicarb soda. It’s abrasive, so to protect your enamel, you don’t want to use it more than once a month, but it’s good to do because it’s great at removing stains, getting into crevices that might be forming into cavities, etc.
If you have damaged teeth or are nervous about damaging your enamel, you don’t have to put it direct to your teeth – you can soak your toothbrush in Bicarb water and use it that way – which is a LOT safer on your teeth and still works for cleaning.
Bicarb = abrasive, whitening, alkaline
Hydrogen Peroxide = whitening
White Vinegar = Fizzes like toothpaste
Water = alkalising and extra protection for enamel from bicarb abrasiveness
- 1 TSP Bicarb Soda
- 1 Capful 3% Food-grade Hydrogen Peroxide
- 1 Capful White Vinegar
- 2 Parts Filtered Water
Combine ingredients in a cup.
Dip your toothbrush into solution and brush as normal.
