As I promised, here are my results from doing the charcoal teeth whitening experiment. After one go at it, I didn’t see much of a difference, granted, I had pretty white teeth to begin with ( I don’t drink coffee, tea, or soda). Something that I did notice was how clean my teeth and mouth felt afterwards. It felt like I’d been to the dentist for a teeth cleaning. I think doing this a couple of times a week could be something I’d be into. I’m not sure how much of an effect it would have on someone with less white teeth to begin with. I’ll keep using for a couple of weeks and do an update. If you want to try it, it can’t hurt
Tips on how to do this:
- Have a paper towel handy for your black drool, you don’t want to wipe it on a towel..this stuff stains!
- Spit away from the grout in your sink to prevent staining.
- Do this when the kids go to bed, and wear a robe over your clothes incase it gets messy.
- The charcoal will slightly stain your toothbrush.
I emptied the capsule of charcoal into the bottle cap, dipped my tooth brush in, and brushed! Left it on for 2 minutes. The results are lacking amazingness, but my teeth felt clean after. SO, there’s that.
I’m slightly weirded out about posting such a close up shot of my grill on the world wide web, almost feels weirder than posting a naked photo of myself, but whatevers. Let’s just say it’s in the name of science!!!
p.s. photos of grill are not edited or color corrected, so booyah
