They Call Me Yuck Mouth

Over the Memorial Day weekend, I don't think I moved much except to eat and pee. I literally stayed inside and on my iPad for days. And although some might think that I was a lazy ass. I totally was. I honestly didn't want to do anything. It was a long weekend and I utilized my restless skills to the max. Pinterest and I were buds. So, I came across this post on how to make your teeth whiter. I pinned it and then two days later decided to try it.

Here's what you will need.

1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of peroxide
1 dab of toothpaste
1 dixie cup (or Red Solo Cup, I fill you up)

Mix all ingredients together, then put on your tooth brush. It's not a thick paste. I brushed for two minutes. And the outcome was this. I guess if you did this once a week like recommended for a month you might see results. I did notice a slight difference but other than that the only difference I noticed was my teeth were really clean and squeaky. Be careful with the peroxide it is a little hard on the gums. So, will I try it again? I don't know. It tasted like crap but I might just give it another whirl for a month to see. One day probably isn't significant enough. Why can't the white strips be cheaper.

So, do you have any home remedies? Fill me in.

Happy Wednesday,


  1. I found this home made jewelry cleaner that was INCREDIBLE - similar to the teeth whitening treatment that you posted...sooo that being said I'm not trying this on my teeth...but maybe my jewelry.

  2. My gums and teeth have such a hard time w the crest strips. I loathe teeth whitening. Maybe I will try this.

  3. I tried one similar to this. It had lemon juice in it though. It tasted like shit! It was awful!

  4. I only use baking soda, maybe I should add in peroxide to enhance the effect now.

  5. I have not tried any home remedies for teeth whitening. You're right, the strips are crazy expensive. And the whitening toothpastes out there just don't cut it. I've tried the whitening rinses, but my gums got totally destroyed from them, so I stopped that. Hope this one works for you, if it does, I think I might try it!

    xo, Yi-chia

  6. I'm always scared to try stuff like that but you're right, those strips aren't cheap

  7. Glad you took it for the team and tried this out for us. I have also pinned this thinking i would try it one day. I guess i'll stick to the strips and get a loan every other month to afford them.

  8. Those strips are crazy expensive!

  10. make you life easier and buy the strips...well worth it...pinky promise!!

  11. Wow, I never considered making my own teeth whitener - I think it is probably one of those things that needs to be done fairly frequently to reap the full benefits.

  12. I used to use white strips in college, but I never manage to follow the schedule. This sounds to disgusting to even bother trying, I'm afraid, but I'm glad you reviewed it!

  13. I don't have some remedies, but I'm so glad that I stumbled upon your post! This one I'll definitely try! No expensive visiting to dentist!



  14. Every agency had a black color dress in his/her collection.

    Some blingy house will not sidetrack from folks expecting that education goes

    Masking their expectations, specifications and demands are customized and specific both.

  15. Some blingy build will not distract from folks expecting that education
    will happen. British Designer fashion and style is

    One of all the most frequent designer labels of men's accessories is balenciaga.

  16. Some days I am like that also but who cares? We all needa' break once in awhile. I haven't ever made my own teeth whiter but I have attempted to make my own tooth paste which consisted of baking soda, water and peroxide. Really wasn't the best tasting (all it was missing was a minty taste) but it did the job! I decided in the long run to just use my regular $.88 tooth paste instead (:

  17. My sister did this in hs it totally works

  18. Of course it sounds nasty as hell Dusty, but I'll bet it's fairly effective and similar to what we pay someone hundreds of dollars for.

  19. I used to brush my teeth with just plain baking soda and that works. sometimes I'll do the strips, but I'm open to trying this!

    Also, you haven't posted in forever, where are you?!!
