Discovery! Home made tooth whitening made my own formula for pennies!

So my sister in law shared this with me.  You only need a few ingredients that you probably already have on hand.  A few months ago I wanted to try Crest Whitestrips but couldn't decide if I wanted to spend the money on them or not.  What if they didn't work etc.  Well when my sister in law shared this, I decided to try it.  I didn't take before and afters I wish I had...there really was a difference after my first use of this.

What you will need :

Pictured is regular Hydrogen Peroxide that you can pick up at Walmart for like .88 a bottle.  Baking soda like .54 at Walmart.  Whatever your regular tooth paste is.  A small containter for mixing and a teaspoon or something for measuring.  (I used a baby spoon that I have left over from my daughter baby food days)

Mix 1/8 tsp of peroxide, with 1/8 tsp of baking soda, 1/8 tsp of water and a dab of your regular toothpaste...mix thoroughly with spoon or i just mixed it all together with my toothbrush and it looked like this

I just dip my toothbrush in and start brushing.  I dip my toothbrush in it a couple times throughout the course of brushing then spit and rinse.  I am sure you can mix more or less of the ingredients depending on your preference or sesitivity to the taste of the paste.  I didn't find it intolerable i just rinsed with mouthwash when i was done to make sure I was extra clean.  You can do this as often as you brush till you reach your desired results then just use it maybe once a month or so for maintenance.

Hope it helps someone! It sure did me.


  1. Hi there MJ. I just found your blog and I am enjoying it. Thanks for the tip on the teeth whitener. Always looking for something to do naturally and cheaper than what you can buy in the store. Hugs, Bobbi Jo
