Instead of fixing with expensive whitening strips and other various teeth whitening tools, try this natural, two ingredient homemade strawberry teeth whitener!
Wondering how and why strawberries can whiten your teeth? This delicious fruit contains malic acid, which may help to reduce stains on your enamel, while baking soda works to remove plaque and brighten your teeth. The combination of the two can make for a powerful and affordable teeth whitener!
