Whitening your teeth is an easy way to change your beauty and even make you look younger. Many people are looking for a natural approach to dental care and may seek certain “natural home remedies,” many of which have been passed down from generation to generation.
The reason wood ash whitens teeth is because it contains potassium hydroxide, also known as lye. Only hardwood ash contains significant concentrations of potassium hydroxide; softwood ash does not. Shop our whitening kit here
Some people also advocate the use of a paste or a “rub” of sea salt combined with water or even acid, such as cider vinegar, to whiten teeth. The use of abrasive compounds along with the acid-based vinegar will probably brighten teeth a bit, but no more so than a commercial application.
Baking soda won’t bleach your teeth, but it can remove plaque as it is an abrasive. Be warned, though. Because of this abrasive quality, if you use baking soda too frequently, it will damage tooth enamel. Most commercial toothpaste will remove stains as effectively as baking soda and do so without the side effects or risks.

Use Hydrogen Peroxide
Use Apple Cider Vinegar
Acetic acid, which is the main active ingredient in apple cider vinegar, effectively kills bacteria. The antibacterial property of vinegar is what makes it useful for cleaning your mouth and whitening your teeth. The acetic acid in vinegar has the potential to erode the enamel on your teeth. For this reason, you should not use apple cider vinegar every day. You should also limit the amount of time that apple cider vinegar is in contact with your teeth
