Sparkling white teeth are every person’s yearning. They not only indicate hygiene but also give you oodles of confidence. But due to improper eating and brushing habits teeth may become stained or tinged.

Step 4: With the help of an old unused tooth brush, apply this mixture to your teeth and brush your teeth gently for 2 minutes.

Step 5: Let this mixture sit on your teeth for 10 minutes.

Step 6: Rinse your mouth well with plain water.

  • Do not ingest baking soda or the mixture.
  • This procedure should be done once in 4-6 months as baking soda can have an abrasive effect on your teeth and might erode your enamel if done repeatedly over a short period of time.
  • Discard the tooth brush once you’re done with the procedure.
  • Do not eat or drink anything for the next 6 hours or so. You may preferably do this process before bed time.
