Thanks for the reminder Rita L.....Just a tip for those who may not keep mint extract around...moistening your toothbrush with mouthwash will do the same (taste wise). I use the anti-plaque wash.

What a money saver! This is just as good if not better than the strips and the stuff you paint on your teeth. I have tried both of those and I end up with very sensitive teeth afterwards. Not only did this whiten and freshen but it also left no sensitivities to my teeth. I used peppermint extract and it didn't taste any worse than that paint stuff. THANK YOU!!

I am amazed at how well this worked. I look forward to trying it again in a week. The taste is something I could live w/o, but OH the savings- it's worth it.

We use a similar "recipe". The "soreness" goes away after you use it for a while. It usually is only sore where there is gum irritation and this helps "heal" that.

Cheap, easy, clean feeling teeth, but really irritated a place on a gum near a bridge--maybe just a bit too harsh, be careful.

I use about a teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide with 1/2 a cup of water as a gargle about once a week. Its a good mouthwash and teeth whitener at the same time. Brush your teeth with normal toothpase afterwards to finish the jod and get rid of the peroxide taste. Only do this at the most once a week or it might make your teeth sensitive.
