Whiten Fingernails And Teeth
Hydrogen peroxide is a common hair bleaching method because it can lighten the color of an individual's hair. However, what some individuals may not realize is that it can also be used to whiten teeth. Fingernails can become discolored and stained due to underlying medical conditions or due to frequently using nail polish. To use hydrogen peroxide as a fingernail whitening solution, individuals will need to create a mixture of three percent household solution, baking soda, and whitening toothpaste. This can be applied to the nails with cotton swabs.
Individuals can either use hydrogen peroxide as a rinse or paste to whiten their teeth. In rinse form, individuals should mix the hydrogen peroxide solution with equal parts water, swish it around their mouth, and then spit it out. In paste form, individuals will mix a small amount of the chemical with several teaspoons of baking soda. They should add tiny amounts of peroxide to the mixture until a thick, non-gritty paste forms. They should apply the paste to their teeth with a toothbrush and rinse it off by swishing water around their mouth a few times and spitting it out.
