Would adding lemon to the Baking Soda be bad for your teeth? I'd lve to make the taste better...

Probably a little late.. But, I shouldn't add lemon because lemon is very sour, which is very bad for your teeth!

Hahahah my grandpa used to brush his teeth this way for YEARS. His teeth were probably the healthiest in my family xD

I used it for a while, brushing with toothpaste as least once a day, and I wasn't getting any cavities or sore spots, and they were pretty white. My teeth are getting a little discolored again, so I think I'll do this again. Yup.

Yea this is something my dad taught me since we both like tea and tea stains teeth.
I use a little salt too occasionally or like one poster said, a little hydrogen Peroxide. Makes it feel like the cleanest mouth EVER. Really effective when you want a clean mouth but no minty taste like before eating or before you kiss someone and don't want them to know you freshened up.

Sounds like an awesome idea, my teeth need lightening a shade or two. I'll give it a go. Thanks ladies!!

Yeah, I do this sometimes but I mix my baking soda with peroxide to a paste consistency, it does lighten up to a few shades. Doing this too much will make your teeth sensitive and really not good for the enamel, so doing this once or twice a month is about right and still way cheaper than the store bought stuff.
