Did you have a scheduled cleaning cancelled due to COVID-19? Teeth feeling a little grimy no matter how much you brush? Here are a few cheap and effective ways to clean and brighten your teeth using things you probably already have in the kitchen.

Things like baking soda, lemon juice, peroxide and strawberries can really do a great job cleaning and whiting your teeth, even loosening up stubborn stains.

Below are a few different things you can try, but again, please follow directions closely.
