DIY – Teeth Whitener (with Hydrogen Peroxide & Baking Soda)

Share via email


Back before my hiatus from blogging, I posted about  how excited I was to get the Crest Whitening Strips on sale.


Fast forward a year and a half and guess what – I have most of the strips left over.  Can we insert a groan here? Another few bucks wasted.


Well, I started getting the urge to whiten my good ol’ chompers again and was instantly brought back to my abandoned Whitening Strips. This time, though, I remembered a conversation with my friend who told me she whitened her teeth with – wait for it – hydrogen peroxide.


I did some searching online – I honestly didn’t remember the ‘how’ of her process and I didn’t think this is one of those things you can completely ‘wing’ (like my coconut oil experiments).


I came up with a plan of action – I would brush my teeth with a combo of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. And I would do it when my husband was  not looking – this is one those things he would just shake his head about.


Armed with my tools:

  • a baby toothbrush the kids outgrew before I used it ($1.99)
  • my buddy  baking soda (fifty cent at the dollar store)

Sorry, I couldnt help it

  • and a bottle of hydrogen peroxide (which cost me a full buck)

First, I brush my teeth with regular toothpaste.

Then, I simply mix 1 part hydrogen peroxide to 2 parts baking soda in this little bowl (actually, I use an  icing container from a package of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls… I kept it because I thought someday it would come in handy.  Look at me – recycling.).

I then use my baby tooth brush and take care of business brushing my teeth. I spit & rinse as usual.

I try to do it every few days.

I swear I noticed a change in my teeth… Has anyone tried this?  Am I slowly losing my mind?
