Baking soda

Adding baking soda in your brushing experience eliminates the bacteria and kills it. It is cheaper in the price, and you can get this from any grocery shop.

It helps to whiten your teeth naturally, and its acidic property helps to maintain the Ph balance of your mouth. Due to its acidic property, we will suggest using the procedure twice in a week and if you have any allergic reaction with the ingredient then take the expert advice first before using it. 

Lime juice

Lemon is also considered a natural whitening ingredient of nature that includes bleaching property. Its anti-bacterial quality naturally kills bacteria and removes plaque and tartar and makes your teeth white shiny and healthy.

Mixing it with apple cider vinegar can appear magical and instant results and if you want to avoid baking soda, try to add lemon in your brushing process twice or thrice in a week. You will get the same results but after a few weeks. If you are not in too much hurry, then repeat it.   


We use the toothpaste regularly, but still, we get teeth troubles because only toothpaste cannot kill those stubborn bacteria in your teeth and mouth. Mixing some toothpaste with these ingredients helps to remove bacteria and makes your breath suitable.

Toothpaste also helps make a foamy mixture that is needed for the procedure, so try to add white toothpaste rather than others.
