Yep! Use it daily - just a quick swig will help so much. Like the idea of the baking soda though.....hadnt thought of that. No real enamel issues yet but only doing this for 2 months.... hope that helps!

ACV is so good for so many things that I just wanted to incorporate it into my health routine. But I didn't want to sacrifice something like teeth enamel to do it. Just trying to get a handle on the pros and cons.

Good idea, Live, using the straw. That's just terrible about the enamel on your teeth!
Another idea is to give your mouth a baking soda rinse... baking soda is alkaline and will counter the acidity of the vinegar.. don't need much just put a pinch in a glass of warm water, swish, spit out, then follow with plain water and you're good.

New decade. Big world. Hello, 60!
Never underestimate the value of getting out of your own way.
* To your teeth. Even when diluted it will graduall - or not so gradually - strip the enamel off your teeth. I used it (very diluted) for only 2 or 3 months, and it really stripped the enamel off my teeth, and now they are yellow due to exposing the underlayer. I did already have poor enamel, but this finished off my enamel and gave me yellow teeth that will never ever go away.
* For persons who are allergic to molds this can be a mild to serious risk (used either internally or externally). * Some people get a burning stomach from it. Don't use it if you've had ulcers.
If you do use it dilute it well, and drink it through a straw to lessen the damage (though it still gets around in your mouth, and even rinsing your mouth still leaves some vinegar on your teeth.
