DIY Teeth Whitening
Posted June 2, 2011 by peta2 staff
Are you a soda/coffee/tea drinker (guilty, kinda guilty and guilty) lookin’ for a quick and easy way to whiten up those used-to-be pearly whites? 😉 peta2 to the rescue!
The magical ingredient in today’s DIY beauty blend is strawberry (have you noticed our fruity theme on the peta2 blog?). Strawberries contain malic acid which helps remove tooth discoloration. Add a little baking soda into the mix (as a buffer), and BAM—you’ve got yourself a natural tooth whitener! It’s fast, it’s cheap, and it’s super easy to whip together.
What you’ll need:
- 1 ripe strawberry
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
Mash the strawberry and mix it in with the baking soda. Apply the mixture to your teeth using your toothbrush and leave it on for about 5 minutes. Then, brush your teeth for realsies (with your favorite cruelty-free toothpaste), and rinse. Voila! Enjoy your newly white teeth—now that’s worth smiling about!

I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
