Add a 1/3rd teaspoon of salt in it
10 drops of peppermint extract
Mix all this thoroughly and keep it in an airtight container. Replace your toothpaste with this solution and feel the difference.
Another method for whitening your teeth is to use hydrogen peroxide along with baking soda. You can use hydrogen peroxide only after diluting and then mix the few drops of hydrogen peroxide with a teaspoon of baking soda. Then brush your teeth with this solution.
Another way of using hydrogen peroxide and baking soda:-At first you have to brush your teeth with the toothpaste made by using baking soda, glycerin, and salt (Method 1).Then gargle your mouth with the mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water. The solution must be 50% hydrogen peroxide and 50% water.
Points to remember
