Remove Stubborn Plaque From Your Teeth in Just 2 Minutes Flat!

If you’re anything like me, you brush those pearly whites after
every meal—no exceptions! I mean, c’mon, there’s just something so
satisfying about running your tongue over squeaky clean teeth.
Nevertheless, sometimes bingeing on sugary snacks is JUST as satisfying.
Those are the times when you need to bring in the big guns: baking soda
and hydrogen peroxide.



You heard that right— the things that
clean wounds and keeps your fridge smelling fresh will also do wonders
for your mouth. This particular mixture is our absolute favorite because
it’s a) made from common household items, b) cheap to make, and c) it
contains absolutely NO hidden chemicals or additives, something your
commercial stuff certainly can’t say!

To make your very own plaque-busting mouthwash, you must first gather together the necessary ingredients. You will need:

  • 1 TBSP baking soda
  • ½ tsp of salt
  • ½ cup of drug store hydrogen peroxide (1-3% only)
  • 1 cup cold water
  • ½ cup warm water
  • toothpick
  • toothbrush

Before you go haphazardly combining all of these ingredients together, please be sure that you follow this recipe TO A “T”!

As
the experts over at Intelligent Dental stress, “Hydrogen peroxide
(H2O2) mouthwash can be a god-sent or it can be a bane.” If you know
anything about this chemical mixture, then you know that too much of it
is not necessarily a good thing. That’s why you will want to be sure
that you stick to the formula on this one!
Little Things Also, since swallowing this mouthwash can be harmful, be sure to keep this away from the kiddos.
To get started, first combine both your salt and baking soda in a small container.
Run your toothbrush under some warm running water, then swirl the bristles around in the baking soda-salt mixture.
Brush your teeth normally, and spit out the homemade paste when finished.
Now’s
the time to move on to the best part—the mouthwash! This step is really
simple. All you need to do is combine the ½ cup of hydrogen peroxide
with the ½ cup of warm water and swish around in your mouth for about a
minute or so.
To remove as much of that sticky tartar as possible,
use a toothpick on the hard-to-reach areas and rinse the excess away
with cold water.

Repeat this up process to twice a week, but
remember, this DIY dental routine isn’t meant to replace your daily
flossing and brushing. Just think of it as a fast, fun, and economical
way to make residual plaque a thing of the past. See, we said it would
be easy!
