The best inventions around the house.

The best inventions around the house.

Postby blatz_brat on Mon Jul 09, 2007 4:30 pm

Just thought I would share some of my wonderful rituals.
1 Baking soda.
Put it in your had with your shampoo when washing hair and it will take out build up.
Brush your teeth with it and toothpaste and it will help whiten.
Make a paste out of it with water and use it as an exfoliant. Seriously makes my skin sooooo soft.
2. Peroxide- mouth wash. Not joking it helps whiten and get rid of bad breath.
I will share more later. But I thought I would share that to begin with.

I've heard about rinsing with peroxide before because apparently it helps heal mouth ulcers (which I get a lot of) but I always worry that I'll swallow some and make myself really ill or something. Would it make you ill?

Well if you only put like a capful in your mouth to wash up with if you end up swallowing a bit it probably wouldn't harm you. It actually says on most bottles that it's great to use for a mouthwash.

a lot of celebrities use this method for teeth whitening. I, myself, just never tried it.

In which case I am damn well going to try this! My friend is a dental nurse and has had all these fancy whitening treatments done on her teeth and its got to the point where I don't want to stand next to her in photos because my teeth look so horrible!

Be careful with peroxide becouse it can also strip the good stuff that protects your teeth.

I've used peroxide in my mouth before for ulcers. My doctor told me 1 capful of peroxide and 1 capful of water. Swish for one minute. I imagine using this would work similarly for your teeth without stripping your good stuff.

The baking soda is just the best thing ever to clean the top of the oven and to make chrome and metals shine!

Why yes it will!
If your dog swallows something it shouldn't ( my dogs are mildly stupid) that's one of the things a vet will usually suggest to give to your dog to induce vomiting. So i'm sure if you drank like a quarter cup of it it may be bad news, but getting a little in your throat is just gonna tingle.

streight baking soda DOES whiten, but it also strips the enamel offa yer teeth, wich leads to even more hardcore staining.
