Mythbusting #1 Hydrogen Peroxide as a teeth whitener

Hi! Today I want you guys to know that I’m launching a new category in my blog called Mythbusting. If some of you don’t know, Mythbusters is a show shown here that tests well known myths to see if they’re real or not. It will be much like that show except I’ll mostly be dealing with beauty and household myths.

Are you ready?

Mythbusting #1 Hydrogen Peroxide as a teeth whitener:

Source here!

(But I found it on Pinterest)

“I am never buying white strips again!: dip q-tip in hydrogen peroxide (the key ingredient in whitestrips) and apply to surface of teeth for 30 sec before brushing teeth) once a day for a few days. My teeth looked noticeably whiter after doing this only 2x”

I followed the steps I saw on Pinterest (above) but when I read the source from ehow.com I found out that their procedures are actually different wherein in ehow they mix the hydrogen peroxide with other things ebfore applying it, whereas the one in Pinterest dips it in directly. Use this technique on your own judgement, okay?

So I tried the instructions on Pinterest but only on half my front teeth so I could have a controlled variable and have comparisons. I TOOK CARE NOT TO SWALLOW THE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE. After brushing I checked the mirror and wooooooooow!!!! It really worked, and that was just the first try! Really, that fast? Awesome.

That’s obviously not my mouth. I wish it were, though. Haha!

Although it really works, I only recommend you to do this very rarely and only in a span of a few days, doing it only once a day because it might harm your teeth.

Please comment below and tell me how it works for you!
