Teeth whitener

For a natural way to whiten your teeth, mix equal amounts of water and bicarbonate of soda, then spread the mixture onto your teeth and leave on for five minutes. Then brush your teeth and rinse.

Baking soda also has antibacterial activity and has been found to kill Streptococcus mutans bacteria – a significant contributor to tooth decay. Please use with caution, as bicarbonate of soda used in excess can be abrasive to the teeth enamel
