Because of several years of dipping Copenhagen and drinking coffee my teeth are stained. They don't get any whiter using the Crest Whitestrips every day for a month. I have heard that dentists use bleach to whiten teeth. Dentists cost a lot of money. I have been reading the warnings on the bottle of Chlorox bleach and found a way to do it yourself. The danger is getting bleach on the soft tissue of your lips, tongue or inside of the mouth. As long as the bleach doesn't touch anything but the ennamel of your teeth you are safe.

I use the long swab or Q tip with the wooden shaft. Coat your lips and tongue with vaseline petroleum jelly. be sure to coat your gums above your upper teeth. Try to keep your mouth dry and breathe through your nose. Gently dab a bit of chlorox on one front tooth . Let is sizzle and then spit and wash your mouth out. Repeat the whole process for the 2nd tooth and so forth. I only do the upper front 4. I have done this 3 times and my teeth are white. I wouldn't recommend doing it more than 2 or 3 times

The bleach will eat the enamel OFF of your teeth and once its gone IT WILL NOT COME BACK! YOUR TEETH WILL ROT RIGHT OUT OF YOUR MOUTH! PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS AGAIN. KIDS IF YOU'RE READING THIS DON'T DO IT! Norma please comment here!

That is the craziest idea I've ever heard, that's freakin poison you're talking about putting in your mouth, look my dentist who is on Hwy 51 and Hwy 16, they will finance stuff like this, my husband paid 100 a month for 4 months for his stuff, that was over a year ago, don't mess your teeth up for life! There is other options out there. They even offered 25 dollars a month. It is affordable if this is something you want to do for yourself. You may think they are expensive, but at least you will have healthy teeth afterwards!

The dentist said not to do it. I will ask the other one tomorrow.

Listerine has a whitening mouthwash, it foams like crazy. I can't stand it, but I sure would not put clorox in my mouth. I can not imagine what it would do to the inside of your mouth and gums. And sensitivity. Woo Hoo! I would think long and hard before doing that, but I have heard of people doing it.

No,it is not poison unlest you ingest a lot of it. Chlorox is in our drinking water, didn't you know that?

If you just use this method once a year or so, it should be o.k. But if you get it on your skin, prepare for a burn.

they must be putting "stupid pills" in Marshville's water supply. What is wrong with you people? We will all know if this "takes off", as everyone in Marshville will either have fake teeth or no teeth at all. Damn the stupidity of some people!
Woohoo

Most of them have no teeth now. Maybe this has been around Marshville already, along with the pure grain alcohol. And we talk bad about the hillbillies of West Virginia. WOW

That is crazy dude... there are safer gels which you can use such as carbamide peroxide... it's much safer than BLEACH!!!!

A very simple method is to use a soft bristle toothbrush and brush lightly with Comet cleanser instead of regular toothpaste. The comet will remove stains and clean your teeth to a shiny white. It doesn't taste very good so spit it out and wash your mouth out real good.

I'm hearing both sides that it's a good and bad idea. I'm curious to try it, but I may just get my teeth whitened at the dentist. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Been using Comet and Clorox for years and there is nothing wrong with my tooth! I can still open beer bottles with it.
