4. Sesame seeds
Sesame seeds are great in many ways: use them for seasoning your salad or removing tartar. They act as a natural scrub, and polish and clean the teeth at the same time.
Take a full tablespoon of seeds into your mouth and chew well. You need to try to create a kind of paste and not swallow it in the process. Then brush your teeth with this paste and a dry toothbrush. Do this twice a week.
5. Hydrogen peroxide and mouthwash
Hydrogen peroxide has antimicrobial properties, and so does mouthwash. Mix 1 tbsp of antiseptic mouthwash with 3 tbsp of 3% hydrogen peroxide solution. Gargle with this mixture for a couple of minutes and finish the procedure with clean water.
6. Coconut oil
Another thing you can reach for in your kitchen cupboard is coconut oil. Oil pulling is a popular procedure nowadays. Oil absorbs dirt in the mouth and also has an antibacterial effect against microorganisms living in there.
Swish 1-2 tbsp of oil around in your mouth for 10-15 minutes (it tastes great!), then spit it out and rinse well with warm water.
7. Strawberries and tomatoes
Both tomatoes and strawberries are rich in Vitamin С and you can use them if citrus is not your thing. Chop either of them, make a pulp, and apply it to the teeth. Leave for 5 minutes, then rinse your mouth.
