The Perfect Smile

Just mash a two fresh strawberries with 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and brush the mixture onto your teeth as if it were toothpaste. Let it sit for five minutes, and voila! A bright smile. Of course, you may want to brush your teeth afterwards with water on your regular toothbrush, to remove the occaisional seed.

If you’re curious as to how it works, the answer is simple. Strawberries contain malic acid, which enhances the whitening effect of baking soda. The end result is a sparkling smile that’s perfect for date night.
