5 Ways To Naturally Whiten Your Teeth!

Before we get into how to whiten our teeth, let’s see what leads to having yellow teeth! 


-drinking coffee or tea

-smoking cigarettes 

-thinning tooth enamel due to aging

-poor diet which includes consuming processed foods high in acid 

-excessive fluoride intake 

-genetic factors

Now let’s get to the fun stuff! 


Not always the easiest but the best way to whiten teeth naturally is to brush right after eating or drinking something.


Hydrogen peroxide is an antibacterial Agent and works great as a total mouth and gum cleaner and keeps the mouth free of germs.

Directions: Mix 2 parts of hydrogen peroxide with 1 part of baking soda to make a paste that’ll help remove plaque from your teeth.

Make sure to have enough hydrogen peroxide mixed skin as the baking soda can be rough on your enamel. 

Brush the paste on your teeth for about 30 seconds and rinse well.


Oil pulling works by detoxifying the oral cavity by sucking the dirt (toxins) put ofbyour mouth and creates a clean, antiseptic oral environment.

Directions: put a spoonful of coconut oil in your mouth and swish between your teeth for 5 – 20 minutes or add a few drops to your toothbrush and brush it on

Another option is to apply coconut oil to a corner of a clean washcloth and rub it on your teeth!

A bonus: Coconut oil has antimicrobial properites so its great for protecting and cleaning your gums too!


ACV works as a natural antibiotic, teeth/gum cleanser, and is able to remove those stubborn stains on the teeth. Since it’s naturally acidic, it helps break down plaque or other substances stuck to the teeth. Be careful not to brush too hard or too much as it can remove the enamel from your teeth. 

Directions: Brush with ACV. Afterwards, brush again with regular, non-fluoride toothpaste, or you can rinse your mouth really well. 

Activated charcoal can help whiten teeth by absorbing plaque and microscopic tidbits that cause staining.

Directions: wet a toothbrush and into powdered activated charcoal. Brush teeth as normal, paying close attention to areas showing the most staining. Sip some water, swish around thoroughly and spit it out. Rinse well, until spit is clear. 

For best results, brush with activated charcoal 2-3 times per week but avoid using if you have crowns, caps, or porcelain veneers.

RED WINE SPILLED ON CARPET?! DIY Stain Remover That Works!

DIY Carpet Stain Remover

My husband and I just moved into a new apartment a few months ago and it’s required for us to have carpet to reduce noise. BLAH! At first I was like, NO! I hate carpet! Since we didn’t have a choice, one thing we don’t do is wear shoes on the carpet and try to keep it as clean as possible.

Being paranoid about things being spilled on the carpet in the future, I looked up a Do It Yourself Carpet Stain Remover. I found a video on YouTube posted by Clean My Space and I followed her recipe, but I remixed it a little bit.

DIY Carpet Stain Remover Recipe:

2 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide

1 tablespoon dawn soap

1 tablespoon of baking soda

2-3 cups of warm water


Combine all ingredients and pour into spray bottle for easier spot treatment.


We had a few friends and family over for New Year’s Eve last year. All of us were drinking and having a good time…and drinking some more! Haha!

We were all feeling nice and I must’ve been feeling extra good because I was so careless that I accidently spilled my OWN glass of red wine! OH NO! MY CARPET!!! (We have light colored carpet by the way).

I ran to the kitchen, opened the cabinet, grabbed a rag, and pulled out my Carpet Stain Remover concoction and started spraying and scrubbing away! Within a few seconds, I began to see the carpet turn back to its original color! The wine stain was completely gone!!! Our guests were surprised that this miracle just happened in front of their eyes! I was surprised too, but so relieved! Whew!

Unfortunately I didn’t take any pictures, but I can guarantee this carpet stain remover mixture works! Plus I have witnesses! LOL!

Try it out and let me know how it works for you!
