Whiten Yellow Teeth with Strawberry, Banana, Coconut Oil, Coal Paste

Whiten Teeth

If you are suffering from yellow teeth, then follow these tips that will make you boast a charming smile and at the same time save money.

Sodium Bicarbonate and Hydrogen Peroxide

Sodium bicarbonate and hydrogen peroxide are the most commonly used home remedies for teeth whitening.

Tip: Mix sodium bicarbonate and hydrogen peroxide in a toothpaste and use it instead of the usual one. Simply add few drops of peroxide to the baking soda and stir until a paste forms. Then put it on your toothbrush and that’s it.

It is not advisable to use this paste daily because both ingredients are abrasive and can damage the teeth. It is best to use it for 3-5 days and then wait 3-6 months before using it again.


Ever imagined using strawberry for yellow teeth?

Strawberries contain malic acid, which is ideal for dissolving coffee, red wine and tea stains on the teeth. Grind 1 or 2 strawberries and add a teaspoon of baking soda. Using a children’s toothbrush (this helps to clean better between teeth), rub this mixture onto your teeth for 5 to 7 minutes. Then, floss to remove seeds from jammed strawberries.

It is not good to overuse this remedy. Jam acid can bite your teeth and, in the worst case, make them more susceptible to staining.

Banana Mask

You can use the inside of a banana peel, which is rich in potassium, magnesium, manganese, and other minerals, to whiten your teeth. Minerals in a banana are absorbed by the enamel providing sparkling effects. This natural remedy should be used after brushing and flossing. Just peel a ripe banana and then rub a piece of the inside of the shell on your teeth for 2-3 minutes. Once this is done, rinse your mouth and repeat the steps. This is best recommended to do before going to sleep.

But be careful to not let this oil in your mouth for more than 15 minutes. Here’s a simple recipe that is just as effective: first, heat a cup of coconut oil until it becomes liquid. Then add 2 teaspoons of baking soda and 5 to 10 drops of peppermint to the liquid mixture and stir and then use.

Coal Paste
