Brushing your teeth after every meal is absolutely necessary. Not only will you keep them clean and from rotting, you’ll also refresh your breath and you’ll be ready for any situation, if you’re catching what I’m saying. As satisfying as it may be to have fresh smelling breath after cleaning your teeth, it can be equally so when you’re binging on something sweet. For these types of situations, you need to bring out the big guns. The big guns being some fully loaded baking soda and a semi-automatic hydrogen peroxide.
Okay, that was the worst word play in the history of anything that has ever existed. Just baking soda and hydrogen peroxide.
Anyways, this concoction will do wondrous things to your mouth, it will freshen up your breath and get rid of the pesky plaque in your mouth. Here are the ingredients that 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
According to the experts over at Intelligent Dental Stress, “Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) mouthwash can be a god-sent or it can be a bane.” It all depends on the amount used. So just make sure not to use a massive amount, or you could potentially do bad things to yourself.
Also make sure to keep the mouthwash away from the kids as it’s dangerous to swallow it.
1. Combine the salt and baking soda in a small container
2. Run your toothbrush in warm running water, and then swirl the bristles with the baking soda-salt mixture
3. Brush your teeth normally
After that, spit out the paste.
The mouthwash is very simple to make. Just combine 1/2 cup of H2O2 with 1/2 cup of warm water and swish it around your mouth for around a minute or so.
5. Use a toothpick on the hard-to-reach areas
After that, you can rinse the excess away with cold water.
Just keep in mind, this process is not meant to replace your daily flossing and brushing. Repeat all this up to twice a week, and by then you’ll have glittery shiny teeth that will wow all your friends.
