Secrets of Success

Mom'S Bright Smile



my mom had beautiful, white those days there wasn't any "teeth whitening strips"...her secret was to mix 1 teaspoon each of baking soda & hydrogen peroxide...she'd carefully dry her clean, front teeth, apply the mixture to them, time for no more then 2 minutes and rinse smoked cigarettes & drank black coffee all day long...but, her teeth belied this.

  • Ive tried the Baking Soda, but not the peroxide. While it didnt have the effect the combination did on your Mums teeth It did whiten mine quite a bit. Better than all the "whitening " toothpastes. Cheaper too. I use it at times now, and with my sonic toothbrush, the results could only be described as excellent. emoticon - by DOTTYDRUID
