As someone who loves DIY and at-home beauty care, I never bought teeth whitening before even though I tried the Crest samples once in a while. I have been trying the baking soda one for a while and turmeric whitening option is something I started trying after I got pregnant. The ingredients are from your kitchen and it doesn’t take more than a minute to whip up these teeth whitening solutions.
Baking Soda and Lemon Teeth Whitening:
Mix 1 tea spoon of baking soda and ½ tea spoon of lemon juice. Brush your teeth with this paste and keep it in your mouth for 2 minutes before washing. Once done, you can continue your regular brushing.
I used to try this option until I got pregnant.
Turmeric-Lemon Teeth Whitening:
The baking soda whitening is not completely safe when pregnant. So, I started researching more on alternative and settled with this option. Turmeric being a stain maker in clothes, I found it really hard to believe that turmeric will whiten your teeth. After trying for a few times – let me tell you – it works.
If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, this a great alternative option to baking soda teeth whitening.
Mix 1 table spoon of turmeric with lemon. Brush your teeth with this paste and hold on your mouth for 2 minutes before washing. Once done, brush with your toothpaste.
