I got this from a friend. For pearly whites that wow without harsh chemicals treatments, try this natural whitener: Mash 1 ripe strawberry to a pulp and mix with 1/2 tsp baking soda. Using a soft toothbrush, spread the mixture on your teath, let sit 5 minute, then brush as usual. The malic acid in strawberries acts as an astrigent to dissolve surface stains on teeth, while the baking soda breaks into tiny particles to reach and remove deeper stains. Use once a week for a picture perfect smile.
