Baking soda is a versatile product. It's great for eliminating odors, polishing silverware and for cooking, as well as for brushing your teeth. Not only is it an eco-friendly alternative to commercial toothpaste, but it also helps whiten your teeth without damage and is inexpensive.

Pour about 1/4 tsp. baking soda into a small bowl or container.

Dampen your toothbrush with water.

Dip the toothbrush in the baking soda and get as much baking soda to stick to it as possible.

Brush your teeth, and rinse with water as usual.
