Okay I have a video for you today! I have been wanting to whiten my teeth for my wedding and didnt want to pay for bleach trays or crest white strips (they are oddly expensive now) so I decided to try the whole “banana peel” method…
Some sites say its a hoax but more people than not said it actually works so I gave it a whirl and I definitely noticed a difference after 4 or 5 times of doing it.
There are a few different ways to do it. I rub the peel on my teeth for about a minute, and let it sit for 5 then wash it off.
Other people say to rub it for 2 minutes then brush your teeth. So I guess it is your preference!
But just a fun little trick I have been doing that I thought I would share!
… here is my tutorial of how I do it:

  4. I read about the banana peel whitening some time ago, thanks for sharing! I wasn’t really sure how to do it but had a general idea 🙂 I read somewhere that the minerals will actually strengthen teeth as well though I’m not positive about this, I plan to do more research about that. I believe in natural health wherever possible. Fluoride taken internally is detrimental, the main ingredient in rat poison! And causes many terrible symptoms such as memory problems, apathy/lack of energy etc. I still use Fluoride toothpaste because as a hygienist I know it helps prevent tooth decay but I want as little as possible in my system! Definitely wise NOT to drink fluoridated water! ~Daina

  5. Amber!! First of all, your blog is seriously one of my favorites! you are so darling, and such a talented little thing! I was really curious about this tutorial, and tried it out for myself and.. IT WORKED. so good!! love your tutorials!! You are great!

  6. Your teeth are super white. I’m excited to try this method out. Spending $40 for a few white strips is just ridiculous. Thanks for posting!

  7. Okay this is bizarre because I was just on Pinterest looking at a pin about banana peel teeth whitening and then I go to your site and BOOM banana peel teeth whitening. It’s like the universe wants me to try it!

    p.s. I gargle with Hydrogen Peroxide morning & night before I brush my teeth and I really notice a difference! (and I have sensitive teeth and it doesn’t bother me)

    1. I was a dental hygienist for 22 years and worked in dentistry 28 years total…hydrogen peroxide is a very mild bleach, the dental bleaches use a high concentration to get results quickly. I brush with a paste I make from peroxide (drug store) and baking soda…but one caveat: peroxide full strength will cause “black hairy tongue”…google that if you doubt me, they taught that in dental school and if we were caught using peroxide to improve our performance on our patients we were failed…so use sparingly 🙂 Also hydrogen peroxide is excellent for people with periodontal disease (gum disease) it destroys anaerobic bacteria (bacteria that can’t survive with oxygen) that live below the gumline. 🙂 ~Daina

  8. 5 minute Plus White is another great, cheap, whitening alternative. This also doesn’t give me sensativity.
