6Baking Soda Is A Good Teeth Whitening Agent

Baking soda is one of the best natural remedies to whiten your teeth. Make a paste of ½ teaspoon of baking soda and one strawberry and spread the mixture on to your teeth. Allow the paste to remain for just 5 minutes, after which you should brush your teeth and rinse thoroughly. Do not do this more than just once every week as baking soda is a bit abrasive and can wear away enamel.
