1 tbsp Baking Soda
2 tsp Lemon juice
Method of Preparation:
Take the baking soda in a bowl, now tip in the juice of a freshly squeezed lemon. Owing to baking soda’s alkali effect, the mixture will froth up. Keep stirring the mix with a spoon until it begins to gradually thicken. The mix will be light and grainy, yet thick. This consistency you can attain only by constantly stirring for a few minutes.
Baking soda has antibacterial properties which help fight germs and bacteria in the teeth and gums, and the acidity of lemon makes it a good cleansing agent.
Now, using your ring finger or a piece of clean cotton swab, apply this mixture on your teeth and scrub it thoroughly for a few minutes. Leave it on for about 5 minutes. Rinse your mouth with cool water. Repeat this ritual thrice a week for at least two weeks to completely get rid of the discolouration or yellow stains.
Just two ingredients and two minutes, and you will be the proud owner of sparkling white teeth that look great in every photograph.
