17. Orange Peels

A remedy that people often use before bed, rub some fresh orange peels onto your teeth before hitting the hay. This works well because of the vitamin C found in the peels, as it will ward off bacteria as well as brighten the color of your teeth.

Plus, it’s much more appealing (no pun intended) to taste than lemon and salt. So the choice is up to you!

16. Charcoal

I’m sure you’ve heard of this one before, as the craze of activated charcoal has hit the web for impressively white grills. Charcoal has a bunch of crystal-based chemicals that prevent plaque and yellow coloring from accumulating.

You will simply apply the activated charcoal to your dentifrice to brush with it like normal. Add a little water, and you’re good to go. Though it might seem a little scary at first, as your teeth appear completely black, the results are well worth the minute of looking in the mirror.
